James Harden has been on a tear since last 2-3 weeks and has been pouring in points effortlessly.

Harden hit a tightly-contested three to put Houston on top with a second left in the overtime period. DeRozan got his first career triple-double, stuffing the stat sheet with 21 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists and 2 steals. It was Kawhi Leonard's first game back in San Antonio since he was traded. Backup point guard Delon Wright had 15 points while combo forward Pascal Siakam had 10 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds.
