• James Harden
    G, Houston Rockets

    James Harden recorded a fresh career-high 61 points vs. the Knicks on Wednesday, going 17-for-38 from the field, 5-for-20 from downtown and 22-for-25 from the line in 40 minutes.

    That were a lot of attempts and a lot of made field goals and free throws. But wait, there's more. Harden also added 15 boards, four dimes and five steals to the box in his career night. Words. Blurb words. There are few left to describe his recent explosions – that seem to get bigger and bigger with every passing game. Enjoy the ride folks. By the way, someone please hand him the MVP trophy, like now.
