James Harden tied Michael Jordan for the third most 60-point performances in NBA history as the Houston Rockets beat the Atlanta Hawks 158-111.
Harden,pictured, finished with 60 points to reach the mark for the fourth time, the same as Jordan. Only two players, Kobe Bryant (six) and Wilt Chamberlain (32), have more. "That's greatness right there," said Harden. "Hopefully when I am done, I can be mentioned in that group forever."
Harden, 30, made 16 of 24 field-goal attempts, including eight of 14 from three-point range, and connected on 20 of 23 free-throw attempts. He played just 31 minutes and also had eight assists.
