James Harden’s incredible streak of consecutive games with at least 30 points came to an end on Monday night, when he “only” scored 28 points. He followed that up with a 30-point performance on Wednesday to start a new streak, and took things to another level on Thursday night.

Harden scored 58 points, while also having 10 assists, seven rebounds, and four rebounds in the Houston Rockets’ 121-118 victory over the Miami Heat. The Rockets were also down 21 points, making Harden’s’ efforts even more special (and necessary).

Harden was particularly lethal at the free-throw line, sinking 18-of-18 attempts from the charity stripe.

This is the seventh time in Harden’s career that he’s scored at least 50 points and dished out at least 10 assists. Nobody else in NBA history has done that more than three times.

Harden is now tied for fourth in NBA history for games with 55+ points, and four of them have come in 2019. If you were to have wagered on that with the betting odds before this season, you would have stand to win a lot of money!

And he’s fourth in NBA history for games with 58+ points. He’s only two games behind some guy named Michael Jordan.
