Harden's 30-point streak ends as Rockets beat Hawks

James Harden missed all 10 three-pointers he attempted, snapping his 32-game streak with at least 30 points as the Houston Rockets defeated the Atlanta Hawks 119-111 on Monday, February 25.

During his streak - which puts him behind only Wilt Chamberlain's 65-game run in 1961-62 - Harden averaged 41.1 points per game.

He's glad it's over, too - especially since he had no expectation of matching Wilt Chamberlain's 65-game streak, the longest in National Basketball Association history.

Harden, who leads the National Basketball Association with a 36.5 scoring average, said he was injured during a practice last Wednesday when he ran into a teammate.

"It was cool, I knew I wasn't getting to number one, so..."

The last time Harden failed to reach 30 points in a game was on December 6 in a 118-91 loss to the Utah Jazz.

Charges filed against Robert Kraft for soliciting prostitutes
The 77-year-old widower faces up to a year in jail if convicted of the two misdemeanor charges. Kraft denies being involved in "any illegal activity", a spokesman told reporters.

"I don't care, we won".

Harden missed Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors due to a cervical strain.

Young's hot shooting continued after that when he made his seventh 3 to cut the lead to one again.

Chris Paul has now strung together two quality games in a row, going for 20 points, eight assists and six rebounds in the win tonight. "Every day, it's gotten better".

The Rockets are now 6-7 this season when Harden plays and doesn't score 30 (26-16 when he scores 30). "It's amusing because coach (D'Antoni) and everybody was like, 'Man he can play.' I was like, 'Yeah we knew that'".
