James Harden One Rebound Away from a Triple-Double

Last night the Houston Rockets played host to the visiting OKC Thunder and like a good host does for their fans, beat Kevin Durant and crew in a 101-112 victory. The man with the beard James Harden was responsible for much of the damage, posting a stat line of 31 points, 10 assists, and 9 rebounds. Per the Houston Chronicle:

“Offensively, we did a great job making the easy pass, knocking down the shots and everybody ate,” Harden said. “Everybody was involved.

“If there’s two on the ball, I have to trust in my teammates that they will make the next play and they did. Josh and D-Mo did a great job of finding either Dwight (Howard) or finding the corner shooter. Oklahoma City is a very good defensive team, especially when you just hold the basketball and they can sit there and watch you.”
