National Basketball Association round-up: James Harden scores record 60 in triple-double

National Basketball Association round-up: James Harden scores record 60 in triple-double

Harden shot 19 of 30 from the floor and 17 of 18 at the line while adding 10 rebounds and 11 assists.

The 60 points were also a franchise single-game record as he surpassed Calvin Murphy, who scored 57 points in 1978.

The Rockets were without regular starters in Trevor Ariza and Chris Paul Tuesday night and their absence was palpable in their late 114-107 win over the Orlando Magic.

With the game deadlocked at 107-107, Harden nailed a step-back jumper with just under two minutes left before drilling a 3-pointer through a Mario Hezonja foul with 45.4 seconds to play. If that's the way Harden is going to play in the playoffs, the Warriors will need to game plan for that.

"It feels like any other National Basketball Association game, other than I was trying to put the team on my back".

And Harden made history in the only way he knows how, with a shot chart that could bring a tear to Daryl Morey's eye.

The 28-year-old scored 18 points in the final quarter to record his ninth career 50-point game.

Orlando hung tough by placing six in double figures, led by Hezonja and Marreese Speights with 17 points apiece.

"It's a good feeling, I guess". Orlando has had big wins against the Celtics and Wolves over the last two weeks, and they lost to Cleveland by just one point on January 18. "And tonight I guess I was doing everything".

"It was incredible. We had to have every minute from him", he said.

"I looked at coach and said: "Eric can't go, '" Harden said "He said 'go get 'em" and after that I didn't come out of the game".

It was his fourth 50-point game this season and Tuesday's performance bested his previous career-high of 56 points set in November against Utah. "I caught myself just being a true fan throughout the whole game. what he did today was remarkable".

Cleveland star LeBron James gave Harden some love on Twitter after the game, tweeting in part: "That's insane G!"

Magic: Aaron Gordon missed the game with an injury to his left hip that he suffered on Saturday night. But to get one and also get 60 points is ridiculous. Despite the arrival of Paul, Harden hasn't seemed to miss a step.
