Houston Rockets fan's popcorn shower during game

Jarrett Allen slams one home during the Nets' 145-142 OT win over the Rockets on Wednesday night

Every Nets game seemingly comes down to the wire, and Wednesday's game in Houston was no different.

He scored those 58 on Wednesday night in a 145-142 overtime loss to the visiting Brooklyn Nets.

In the midst of the three-point barrage, Rockets guard James Harden poured in 58 points, marking his second straight contest with 50-plus after dropping 57 on Monday night against Memphis.

Houston maintained control of the game throughout most of the fourth quarter, and held a 14-point lead with five minutes to play. He was 16 of 34 overall from the field, made 21 of 23 free throws and had 10 rebounds and six assists. Harden has combined to score and assist on at least 50 points in each of those games, the longest such streak in National Basketball Association history, according to Elias.

On Wednesday, he made reigning league MVP and favorite to do it again James Harden his next superstar victim with an emphatic block to deny a dunk at the end of the second half. "That's big-time for a young group".

Harden has now scored 30 points or more in 18 straight games.


Allen had 21 points and a career-high 24 rebounds, Graham had a career-high 21 points and Carroll added a season-best 22.

"Trying to slow us down a little bit". Harden's last basket that came off an assist came during the fourth quarter of Houston's loss to Orlando on Sunday (for the record, Clint Capela got the assist).

Tucker missed two free throws, but Harden grabbed a rebound with 12.7 seconds left. Houston led 103-90 with 9:42 remaining in regulation, then let the seven-point lead slip away in the extra session.

Next up after that is December pick-up Austin Rivers, who's started the last eight games and averaged 13.3 points in 11 games for the Rockets, shooting 39.7 percent from 3-point range.

Harden's 58 points are the second-most in franchise history behind the career-high 60 he scored against Orlando on January 30, 2018.
