James Harden erupts for career-high 56 points

Houston Rockets star James Harden turned in an absolutely absurd statline against the Utah Jazz Sunday night, scoring a career-high 56 points on just 25 shots while dishing out 13 assists.

He had eclipsed 30 points just once this season entering Sunday's game, but he finished just one point shy of Calvin Murphy's franchise record.

James Harden scored an absurd 56 points.

Harden made 19-of-25 field goal attempts, including 7-of-8 three-point attempts, and went 11-of-12 from the free throw line. Only three other players since the 1983-84 season have topped 55 points and 10 assists in a single game: Russell Westbrook (3/29/17), Tony Parker (11/5/08) and Michael Jordan (12/23/92). But after making a layup on the Rockets' first possession of the fourth quarter, Harden didn't score again before leaving the game for good with 7:32 remaining.

In short, Harden's performance puts him in rare air when it comes to efficiency in a monster scoring performance. Harden and the Rockets, now 8-3 after Sunday's win, have done the majority of their damage without starting point guard Chris Paul.
