Paul George led all scorers with 45 points (12-22 FG, 6-14 3pt FG), 11 rebounds and 3 assists for the Thunder, while Russell Westbrook secured his 22nd triple-double of the season (9th consecutive, tying Wilt Chamberlain for the longest such streak in NBA history) and 126th of his career with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. James Harden totaled 42 points for Rockets, continuing his streak of consecutive 30+ point games to 29 (behind Wilt Chamberlain’s 2 streaks of 31 games and 65 games). With the win, the Thunder improve to 36-19, while the Rockets fall to 32-23 on the season.

    PG is finally up where he is suppose to. He showed the talent to be in the class of the KD and Bron, but never fully put it together untill now.

          Honestly... PG can join Akeem and MJ as the 3rd player ever to win DPOY and MVP in the same year! Giannis and Curry (he should be considered) is the only true threats to the MVP. And DPOY I think it's only Kawhi.

                      This is your MVP? A flopping, traveling man who’s fond of kicking LeBron’s nuts. PG13 is your true MVP 👍👍

                            Why are ppl hating on harden.




                            The fact that hes getting more points a month than the two best players on their team, on the verge of winning a next MVP, complains about defense but doesn't realize he averages more steals than top defenders in the game and brought his team from the 14 seed all the way to the 5. y'all should really be hating on lebron he makes all star captain while his team is in the 9 seed. smh

                                          Harden play so selfish, he only passes the ball when it's needed.
                                          But he's awesome in breaking in and 3 point with his stepbacks

                                              Not everyone is a fan of Harden’s style of play but even if you don’t like him, you have to respect what he’s doing. With Clint still out and CP3 still getting back into the feel of the game, Harden is doing what he knows how to do, even if it’s “not efficient”
