Rockets’ James Harden records dreaded quadruple double vs. Hornets
Harden finished with a dubious quadruple double, as the All-Star guard and former MVP had 30 points, 10 rebounds, 14 assists and 10 turnovers in the Rockets’ 108-99 loss:
James Harden now with the dreaded quadruple double. Has 26 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists … and 10 turnovers.

The Rockets were playing without Russell Westbrook, so Harden had the ball in his hands even more than usual. When you have the ball as much as Harden does, you are bound to turn the ball over at a high volume.
The Rockets have now lost three straight games following a six-game winning streak. This team just continues to be impossible to read from the outside looking in.
Harden is once again leading the NBA in scoring. The Beard entered Saturday averaging 34.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 7.3 assists for the Rockets.
The Rockets are back in action on Sunday against the Orlando Magic at home. Westbrook will play in that game, so Harden will have his MVP pal back with him in the trenches.
