Harden’s 50-point triple-double propels Rockets over Lakers

LOS ANGELES – James Harden’s ridiculous 50-point triple-double powered the Houston Rockets to a 126-111 NBA victory over LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

Harden, who is the current NBA’s Most Valuable Player, added 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his second triple-double of the season and his second 50-point game, helping the team in what has been a frustrating campaign for the Rockets so far.

Houston Rockets is slowing clawing their way back towards the top of the Western Conference, improving to 13-14.

“Honestly, we’re in a hole right now,” Harden said.

“You look at the standings, we’re in the 14th spot – it’s kind of depressing. But we’ve got to figure it out.

“We continue to fight our way through it.”

Harden added, “I just believe and trust in all my guys,” he said. “We’ll continue to build.”
