The Charlotte Hornets broadcast team had every right to celebrate on Saturday after their squad upset the Houston Rockets at home. And when James Harden picked up his 10th turnover on the night, they absolutely lost their minds.
In the end, the Rockets star notched a rare but not-so-desirable quadruple-double.
“THERE IT IS. OH MY GOODNESS. 10 TURNOVERS FOR JAMES HARDEN. A QUADRUPLE-DOUBLE.”

Officially, of course, this does not count as quadruple-double in the history books. There have only been a handful of players in league history who have officially notched the rare feat.
Harden still got the triple-double, but it was a rather forgettable night for him overall.
Although the former league MVP did score 30 points, Harden only shot 2-of -11 from 3-point range and, of course, had the 10 giveaways to go along with his 10 rebounds and 14 assists. Most importantly, the Rockets dropped its third straight outing with the 108-99 loss to the lottery-bound Hornets.
These last three contests have been a bit worrisome for these Rockets. After losing a close, yet, winnable contest to the lowly New York Knicks, Houston got absolutely manhandled by the surging Los Angeles Clippers.
Harden and the Rockets look to get back on track when they host the Orlando Magic on Sunday night.
