Your Morning Dump... Where Semi Ojeleye wants the Celtics to wake the f-ck

The Houston Rockets hosted the Miami Heat on Thursday night and Harden put forth a vintage performance, dropping 58 points in the narrow win.

Justice Winslow of Miami fouled Harden on a 3-point attempt on Houston's next possession, giving the Rockets an automatic three points.

Harden made 8 of 18 3-pointers and was 16 of 32 overall from the field and 18 of 18 on free throws.

Harden scored at least 30 points in 32 consecutive games recently, a feat which hasn't been accomplished since the legendary Wilt Chamberlain was playing in the league.

Former Heat point guard Mario Chalmers, who has been out of the National Basketball Association since playing last season for the Memphis Grizzlies, has signed to play in Italy for Virtus Segafredo Bologna ahead of the Champions League playoffs, according to Sportando.

Whether you like the way he plays or not, there's no denying Harden is an offensive weapon of the highest order.

Gap, JCPenney, Victoria's Secret, Foot Locker: 465 store closures in 48 hours
All the stores, aside from Footlocker, reported declining in-store sales during the holiday season. The department-store chain said same-store sales fell 4% during the fourth quarter.

Harden's performance saw him notch up his sixth 50-point game of the season, while he also recorded his seventh career game with 50 points and 10 assists. This stellar showing comes after the Rockets' All-Star guard torched the New York Knicks for a career-high 61 points back on January 23.

"He was confident and he came in clutch for us, big time shots". We got into them defensively. "This is a character win, and when you get in the playoffs, that's what counts".

"Like I said, I don't worry about missing shots or making shots".

Houston scored the first five points of the final period, but Dragic drained a triple with 6:18 left to play to make it 113-103, but the Rockets, thanks to Harden took over from that point on.

Houston outscored Miami 35-20 in the fourth quarter to win by three.

"I wasn't really paying attention", he said from the locker room. Wade, who swapped jerseys with longtime friend Chris Paul at midcourt after the game, said not reaching against Harden was a point of emphasis in the Heat's game plan that they failed to execute. "But a lot of mistakes of putting that hand in that cookie jar". "But we missed a lot of shots and didn't get any stops so it's a frustrating way to end".
