Reigning NBA MVP James Harden tallies his 28th straight game of scoring at least 30 points

 

LOS ANGELES, USA – James Harden extended his red-hot scoring streak as the Houston Rockets overwhelmed the Sacramento Kings on the road in the NBA on Wednesday, February 6 (Thursday, February 7, Manila time).

Harden scored 36 points in a 127-101 win for the Rockets, the reigning MVP’s 28th straight game where he has scored 30 points or more.

The feat put Harden just three shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s second-longest streak.


 

Gerald Green added 25 from the bench while starters Eric Gordon (20) and Chris Paul (15) backed Harden with useful contributions.

The win saw Houston improve to 32-22, leaving them in 5th spot in the Western Conference playoff race.

The Rockets also snapped the seven-game home winning streak of the Kings, who slipped to 28-26 for the 9th spot. – Rappler.com
