James Harden lit up the San Antonio Spurs for 61 points on Friday, matching his career high as well as the Houston Rockets’ franchise record in a 111-105 victory.

After scoring 57 in Wednesday’s overtime loss at Memphis, Harden has scored a combined 118 points over his past two outings, tying Jordan and Bryant for the most points in a two-game span over the past 50 seasons, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.

After the game, the MVP got in a workout.

Harden is the first player with multiple 60-point games in a season since Bryant, who accomplished the feat during both the 2006-07 and 2005-06 seasons. Before that, Jordan was the last to reel off two 60-point games in a season (1986-87).

Give this man another MVP.
