James Harden Sets NBA Record as Only Player to Tally a 60 Point Triple-Double

While Houston picks up the win.

By //Sports

With teammate Chris Paul currently on the shelf nursing a lingering groin injury, Houston Rockets‘ other star James Harden is now looked upon to carry the load and produce the type of numbers that placed him in the thick of last year’s MVP race. It’s fairly safe to say that on Tuesday night, he did just that, and then some.

In Houston’s win over the Orlando Magic, Harden racked up a record-breaking triple-double stat line, which included 60 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Regarded as the first NBA player to reach a triple-double milestone with at least 60 points, the all-star also added four steals and one block in that same game — recording a tally sheet no one player before him could ever reach. Check out the video below of some of Harden’s in-game action.
