Harden goes for another triple-double in win over the Hornets

Harden joins Westbrook as only two players who went for back-to-back triple doubles of at least 40 points this season.

Make it nine in a row for the Houston Rockets, as they defeated the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday 121-114.

James Harden recorded his 11th triple-double of the season posting 40 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. 


After his his triple-double on Monday (AEDT) vs the Raptors, it makes him the fourth player in NBA history to have at least 40 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in back-to-back games.

The Rockets had let an 18-point lead slip away before they got a bucket from a three-pointer from Ryan Anderson. He followed that up with a block on the other end, which gave Houston the spark they needed.

Harden made a layup to give the Rockets a 115-111 with a minute left, but Kemba Walker banged a three to cut the lead to 115-114.

The Beard sealed the deal with another layup that would give Houston a 117-114 lead, and free-throws would close out the victory for the home team.


Trevor Ariza had 16 points and Anderson added 13 points in the win.

Walker finished with 25 points and 10 assists. Frank Kaminsky poured in 22 points off the bench in the loss.
