James Harden just keeps on producing magical moments, and so, too, does the current NBA season. Player after player have been posting ridiculous numbers, and to no one’s surprise, it’s ‘The Beard’ that has kept that new tradition up.
On Saturday, he and his Houston Rockets took on the Atlanta Hawks, who they tore to shred. Harden scored 60 points in 31 minutes to help down the struggling Hawks 158-111. He was rested for the fourth quarter, meaning he joined Klay Thompson and Kobe Bryant as the only men to have scored that many points in that little time in the past quarter of a century.
