Austin Rivers on James Harden: 'He's unguardable, man, come on bro'

It was as if he knew that he would take the two-time defending champions by storm despite them being on their home court.

James Harden then proceeded to hit an absurd game-winning 3-pointer to effectively wipe out Durant's play, which came with him obviously out of bounds.

Luckily for the Rockets, they have James Harden, and he drained a ridiculous three-pointer to lift the team to victory.

"I do feel we did [let it get away]", said Thompson.

"I take my shots, I drive to the basket", Harden said. "I had confidence that it was going to go in. You see a guy like that every day go that hard, it just gives me so much energy".

A historic run by Harden, which continued with a 44-point, 10-rebound, 15-assist performance that he capped by drilling a 29-foot game victor over two defenders, has some in the Rockets organization thinking of Harden's greatness in a bigger context.

Forty points in five straight puts Harden in elite company with Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Elgin Baylor, Kobe Bryant, and Allen Iverson also accomplishing the feat.

To suggest that James Harden has been a one-man wrecking ball so far this season may actually be an understatement. He's pulled down double-digit boards in two of the past four games and handed out 6-plus assists in four straight.

He was traded to the Rockets from the Thunder in October 2012, and Morey says Houston wants to do everything it can to maximize Harden's prime years in the league.

Clint Capela recorded a 29-point, 21-point double-double for Houston, who beat Golden State for the second time this season.

Steph Curry led the Warriors with 35 points, shooting 14-of-27 from the field, and Durant and Thompson each added 26. "It's simple as that", said Harden about people critical of his playing style.

Over his last 11 outings, the reigning MVP is averaging 41.1 points and 9.5 assists per game, having vaulted the Houston Rockets from the cellar of the Western Conference to the fourth overall seed just 3.5 games out of first place.
