This season, Harden has scored at least

  • This season, Harden has scored at least 40 points 16 times—12 best place to buy mt 2k20 of which came during his remarkable 20-game streak. By comparison, Anthony Davis, the second player on that particular list, has reached the 40-point threshold seven times and Stephen Curry has done so six times.


    Harden averages 35.7 points per game this season and is second only to Michael Jordan in terms of points per game over the last 40 years. The six-time NBA champion scored an average of 37.1 points per game in the 1986-87 season.


    Harden’s 37 points on Monday came despite the fact he sat out the whole fourth quarter, after Mike D’Antoni hoped to rest him as the Rockets entered the final period, trailing by 31 points.


    "This is not a great way to rest him, but we rested him today," the Rockets coach told the Associated Press.


    "We were due for a game like this."


    The loss on Monday night saw the Rockets drop to 26-20 and they are now tied with the San Antonio Spurs for the fifth seed in the Western Conference. Houston ends its two-game road trip in New York on Wednesday, before a three-game home stand against the Raptors, Magic and Pelicans.
