Houston Rockets superstar guard James Harden logged game-high 57 points against the Memphis Grizzlies, 112-94.
The Rockets started the game without Clint Capela who is sidelined due to a thumb injury and expected to be out for four to six weeks.
Yet, that news isn’t slow down the home team and instead they used it as a motivation especially their player who wears number 13.
Already missing Chris Paul, Harden most likely realized that he needs to shoulder the scoring burden for his team and he didn’t failed his coach.
Speaking about Rockets’ chief tactician Mike D’Antoni, he just registered his 600th career victories.
Apart from Harden’s scoring spree, the third overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft just passed Kobe Bryant’s 17 straight games where he scored 30-points or more.
Grizzlies head coach J. B. Bickerstaff tried to stop the “Beard” by throwing triple team but still not enough to shut him down.
