Houston Rockets guard James Harden dropped 42 points against the Boston Celtics, 115-104.
The Rockets is the visiting team when they clashed against the Celtics.
Houston led as much as 28 points and controlled almost the entire ball-game until the fourth quarter when the home team seems decided to make a run.
A 17-6 run ignited by Boston at the start of the fourth quarter and they trimmed the deficit to only ten points, 96-106.
Celtics guard Terry Rozier had the chance to make the score even closer when he got fouled from the three-point land.
However, Rozier missed all of his three-pointers.
Then Harden took over and just like what MVP do, they took the spotlight at the last minutes of the game.
He swished his sixth three-pointer of the game using his step-back trademark.
Eric Gordon also delivered 32 points where his 24 points came from behind the three-point line.
