Rockets’ Chris Paul reacts to James Harden scoring 30 on all teams
James Harden scored 31 points to lead the Houston Rockets to a 121-105 win against the Atlanta Hawks. His scoring output made him the first player in NBA history to score at least 30 points against all 29 teams in the league in the same season.
And back court teammate Chris Paul is happy about the accomplishment of the reigning league MVP.

Harden is once again putting up a sensational scoring performance this season. He’s averaging 35.8 points on 43 percent shooting, to go along with 6.4 rebounds and 7.7 assists. He’s one of the leading candidates for the league MVP honors, which will make him a back-to-back recipient if he ends up winning it.
It’s hard to imagine where the Rockets would be without Harden. He’s the biggest reason why they’re one of the best teams in the league right now. Despite missing Paul and Clint Capela for a significant amount of time this season, Houston kept winning.
However, the heavy lifting might be starting to take its toll on Harden, as he continues to deal with a recurring cervical strain. It’s not something that worries the team, but it obviously has affected his shooting. He has at least 20 games with 10 missed 3-pointers this season alone.
Still, the Rockets will continue to count on Harden, and he will continue to will the Rockets to victories. With the postseason just a few weeks away, The Beard has no plans to stop.
He will keep scoring, win or lose.
Because that’s his game.
