Harden’s Big Night

James Harden came through in a big way for the Rockets in their 114 – 107 win over the Orlando Magic. He became the first player in NBA history to score 60 points as part of a triple-double. The game was tied at 107 after a basket by Marreese Speights with just under four minutes to play. Neither team scored for more than two minutes after that before Harden took over, scoring the next six points to make it 113-107 with 45 seconds left. He set the scoring mark when he stepped back and made a 3-pointer before crashing to the court after being fouled by Mario Hezonja. He then made the free throw to give him 60 points and bringing the crowd to its feet.
