Harden’s 46 Overshadows Durant’s Triple-Double in Houston Win

In sports, there’s nothing better than having a great game against the team that traded you away. Last night, the Rockets played host to the OKC Thunder and James Harden lost his mind. He finished with a career high and overshadowed Kevin Durant’s second career triple double.

James Harden scored a career-high 46 points and Jeremy Lin added 29 as the Houston Rockets mounted a furious fourth-quarter comeback for a 122-119 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.

Houston was down by 14 points with about seven minutes left. The Rockets used a 21-4 run to erase the deficit and take a 114-111 lead with 1:46 remaining. Harden stepped back under heavy pressure from Serge Ibaka to sink a three-pointer to tie it, before Lin connected on one seconds later to give the Rockets their first lead of the second half.
