James Harden scores 60 points in 31 minutes vs Hawks

James Harden scores 60 points in 31 minutes vs Hawks

In Sacramento, California, Harrison Barnes scored six of his season-high 30 points in overtime and Buddy Hield hit two free throws with 9.5 seconds remaining as the Kings beat the Denver Nuggets 100-97 in overtime.

Harden's 60 points on 24 field-goal attempts during Saturday's blowout victory were the fewest of any player in National Basketball Association history to score 60.

Harden shot only 24 times from the floor, making 16 of them.

Harden went into halftime with 31 points to his name, but in the third quarter he turned the temperature all the way up and erupted for 29 points in the term to give him 60 as the Rockets held a 127-73 lead. Harden was a magnificent 16-for-24 from the field (including 8-for-14 from deep) and added three rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and a block to his line as well.

Young's performance was not enough to offset Harden's eight 3-pointers and 20 free throws. "My man had 60 and didn't play the fourth quarter".

Houston Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni described James Harden as "unbelievable" and "incredible" after a 60-point performance in the National Basketball Association on Saturday.

Harden looked at the screen, read the note and pointed at it while opening his mouth as if saying: "I was so close", before smiling broadly.

"It's like everything he does, amazing", said Houston coach Mike D & # 39; Antoni. "But we played a really good game those first three quarters, so it was an opportunity for other boys to play the minutes they had won".

The first half, by Harden's standards, was relatively innocuous.

"I changed my mindset", Embiid said.

Asked if he considered leaving Harden in the game, D'Antoni said it was never an option.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points but his double-double streak ended at 19 games when he grabbed nine rebounds while playing only 20 minutes as Milwaukee coasted over Charlotte.

"Pat Connaughton (team-high 10 rebounds) probably stole it".
