Harden scores 60 points in Rockets win

James Harden scored 60 points for the fourth time in his career during the Houston Rockets’ 158-111 NBA win over the Atlanta Hawks.

He played just 31 minutes of the game and fell one point shy of his career-high points haul of 61 points, which he has achieved twice.

Only Wilt Chamberlain (32) and Kobe Bryant (six) have more 60-point hauls and Harden is tied with Michael Jordan.

“That’s a great list right there,” said Harden, who also had eight assists.

“Those guys are something that I’m trying to get to. Hopefully when it is all said and done, I can be mentioned in that group forever.”

Harden is also the fourth player to score 50 or more points on 20 occasions, after Chamberlain (118), Jordan (31) and Bryant (25).
