James Harden Makes NBA History With First Ever 60 Point Triple-Double

Wes Iwundu Excited to Play in Front of Family and Friends

(Points)+0.4*(Field Goals Made)+0.7*(Offensive Rebounds)+0.3*(Defensive rebounds)+(Steals)+0.7*(Assists)+0.7*(Blocked Shots)- 0.7*(Field Goal Attempts)-0.4*(Free Throws Missed) - 0.4*(Personal Fouls)-(Turnovers).
It also became a career-high for Harden, who is considered a frontrunner for NBA's Most Valuable Player.

Since Trevor Ariza was also ruled out, the offense was fully expected to run through Harden and Eric Gordon, who was inserted into the starting lineup. Harden also made 17 of 18 free throws in the winning effort.

James Harden had a historic night Wednesday (AEDT) in Houston.

Game Score was created by John Hollinger, a former columnist for ESPN Insider, to give a rough measurement of a player's productivity for a single game. Obviously, that kind of production speaks for itself and the triple-double achievement will take its rightful place in the history books.

"I've been in the league 10 years, so I've seen some guys go off like that", Magic point guard D.J. Augustin said.

Harden has now scored 50 or more points four times this season, all of which came without Chris Paul on the court. Harden averaged 19 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his 2 seasons at Arizona State. The previous high for a triple-double game was 57 by Russell Westbrook last March.
