James Harden led the Rockets to a 126-111 win over the visiting Lakers on Thursday night.  He put up a 50-point triple double on Los Angeles.

Harden had 11 assists and 10 rebounds to go along with his 50. 

Two of his 50 came on a monster dunk on Lakers center JaVale McGee.  A triple double and a posterization, that’s having yourself a night.

As Harden goes, the Rockets go.  He’s the fuel to their offense and when he’s on Houston is hard to beat.

The only problem with that is Harden tends not to show up for every game in the playoffs.
