Harden Set A New NBA Record
James became the first basketball player in the history of the NBA, who managed to score at least 50 points in two consecutive matches and scored at least 10 three-pointers.
The Houston Rockets point guard James Harden has become the best player of the game against Orlando Magic. The duel in Orlando ended with a score of 130: 107 and Rockets won the game.
What is interesting, Harden scored 54 points and made 10 out of 15 three-point shots. James was the first who managed to score 50 or more points while making at least 10 shots from behind the arc in two games in a row.
Harden was also able to repeat the achievement of Golden State Warriors defender Stefan Curry, who in February 2016 made two games in a row, having scored at least ten three-pointers.
This is already the 25th match of James this season. The average player statistics is 39.3 points, 7.5 assists and 5.9 rebounds per game.
