Toward the end of the night, needing just one assist for a triple-double, James Harden turned into what he normally has been this year: playmaker.
His lob pass to Montrezl Harrell led to a thundering dunk, giving him his 10th assist, and a nice little bow in the Houston Rockets’ 101-91 victory over the Washington Wizards on Monday night. Harden picked up his ninth triple-double of the season and 18th of his career. He became the first player in franchise history to go three consecutive games with a triple-double.
