James Harden becomes first Rocket to notch 3 straight triple-doubles
James Harden has put himself among the franchise’s all-time greats after a 23-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist outing during a 101-91 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday, becoming the first Houston Rocket to record three straight triple-doubles.
The Beard struggled from the field after a mind-blowing performance to close out the year, shooting only 6-of-24 from the floor and 2-of-11 from deep, but ultimately managing to edge out his fellow Player of the Week in Wizards point guard John Wall (18 points, 12 assists, five rebounds).

Harden has once again announced himself as a serious MVP candidate along his former teammate Russell Westbrook after collecting his ninth triple-double of the season and the 18th of his career.
