James Harden has scored 151 points in November, and that’s in only four games (good for a 37.75-point average).
The Houston Rockets’ guard followed up his insane 56-point performance with another dazzling effort on Thursday. Harden had 35 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds, and five steals in the Rockets’ 117-113 win over the reeling Cavaliers.
How rare is a stat line like Harden pulled off in this game? Only Michael Jordan (in 1989) also put together a 35-point, 10-assist, 10-rebound, 5-assist game in the last 30 years.
In the last 30 seasons, two players have recorded 35 points, 10 assists, 10 rebounds and 5 steals in a game.
