James Harden has only missed three games this season. The reigning MVP has scored at least 30 points in 32 consecutive games. The Rockets enter Saturday with a record of 33-25, good for fifth place in the Western Conference standings. However, Houston has lost three of its last four games.
Harden is averaging 36.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game this season. The seven-time All-Star is shooting 44.2 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 87.1 percent from the free-throw line. Harden has 22 double-doubles and six triple-doubles on the season. The Rockets are 32-23 when The Beard is in the lineup.
Houston is coming off a 111-106 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center. Both Harden and point guard Chris Paul were very critical of referee Scott Foster. Harden scored 30 points against the Lakers, but shot just 11-of-24 from the field, 2-of-10 from the 3-point line, and fouled out of the game.
