Watch James Harden score 60 as Rockets rout Hawks 158-111

Watch James Harden score 60 as Rockets rout Hawks 158-111”

Houston Rockets guard James Harden scored a historic 60 points in just three quarters during Saturday's huge win over Atlanta.

"That's a great list right there", said Harden, who also had eight assists.

He checked out of the game with the Rockets up 54 points heading into the fourth, just one-point shy of tying his career-high and despite the crowd's pleas to Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni to put him back in, Harden sat the entire fourth quarter.

The Rockets were up 127-73 after three quarters, and Harden surely would have obliterated his career-high if it wasn't such a blowout. Harden scored a career-best 61 points in NY in January 2019.

Speaking about Harden, D'Antoni told a news conference: "Like everything else he does, unbelievable".

Trae Young led the Hawks with 37 points and seven assists in the loss.

The Rockets raced out to a 14-5 lead and had stretched their advantage to 81-52 by halftime behind 31 points from Harden for their third 80-point first half in franchise history.

As good as Harden was in the first two quarters, it was nothing compared to how he dominated in the third quarter. Harden had 29 points in the third quarter, including a stretch of 18 consecutive points.

"I can't do that, I couldn't, you guys would kill me if I did that and he got hurt", he said. Houston's 158 points were the second-most the team has scored this season. The star went 16-of-24 from the field, and eight-of-14 from three-point range, in an outstanding performance.
