James Harden continued to play on another planet Saturday night, scoring 41 points as the Rockets defeated the Pelicans, 108-104.
For the third consecutive game, Harden scored 40+ points to join Moses Malone as the only players in Rockets history with three straight 40-point games. Harden has now had nine straight 30+, seven straight 35+ and three straight 40+ points. In his last 10 games, he’s averaging 39.4 points. This level of play is nothing less than unreal.
Eric Gordon had 21 points, Danuel House Jr. scored 15 points and Austin Rivers continued to contribute off the bench with another 10 point night.
Houston has won nine out of their last 10 games and will host the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night at 6:00pm.
