HE finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists, good for his second triple-double with the Lakers.

According to statistics compiled by ESPN, Harden is one of only six players in National Basketball Association history to score 50 in a triple-double.

He was unstoppable throughout on penetration, helping the Lakers outscore the Hornets 40-17 in the third quarter and build a 30-point lead with his second triple-double of the season and 75th of his career. Let's hope they can pull off the upset and get a nice win Saturday night.

James Harden has a trademark "nosebleed" celebration whenever he makes a dunk, but the Houston Rockets guard chose to do something different on Thursday night.

James celebrated their shared feat on his Instagram account after the game.

The coach said: "We had several spurts in that second half where we sort of lost our composure and just couldn't get anything going". Through the Lakers' first 20 games, they allowed 124.5 ppg.

She said the president had responded that she should inform the press because it would be news to them. Later, Pelosi said Trump talked so much about the border wall, "it's like a manhood thing for him".

Harden scored 11 points in the fourth quarter, when the Rockets - who led 90-88 through three periods - finally pulled away in a game that featured 13 lead changes and was tied 12 times. "They were calling it tight today, so I was just trying to get my hands out of there". Ask Alexa! Say "Alexa, enable Spreaker" and to start listening simply say "WagerTalk" when asked what you want to listen to! That can become a distraction for players and lead to the destruction of chemistry for a team.

Los Angeles Lakers have a 17-10 record (11-15-1 against the spread) so far this season and are now tied with the Clippers in the 4 place of the West.

The Rockets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games.

"You can't touch them", Ball said. We know this team plays fast so they're gonna make runs, but I thought we did a good job staying poised in the fourth.

Wizards: The deal bringing Trevor Ariza to Washington from the Phoenix Suns is still not official, so Oubre and Rivers were listed as inactive Sunday because of "trade pending". Picking that outfit on the night the Rockets played the Lakers was not done by mistake.

Rockets: Brandon Knight played in his first game since February 15, 2017, after recovering from surgery to fix a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.
