James Harden became just the 3rd Houston Rocket ever to have multiple 50 point games in a season when he scored a career-high 51 points in a win against the Kings on Wednesday night.

“He finds a way to wow our team every time he goes out there,” said teammate¬†Trevor Ariza. “He’s just so crafty and he can score so many different ways. It’s definitely fun to watch.”

The 51 topped his previous career-high of 50 which was set just last month.  He also made 8 of 9 3-pointers which tied his career-high in made 3-pointers.

The amazing performance out shined another amazing performance from DeMarcus Cousins who had a monster triple double of 24 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists.

“I’ve never coached a guy that can put up so many things into a game,” Kings coach George Karl said. “He has a triple-double, but really has a quadruple-double because he had six blocks, three steals and at least one or maybe two charges. There are another 10 possessions he gave us because of his defensive abilities.”
