HARDEN'S FIFTY

The MVP posts 50-point triple-double to help knock off Lakers

The Rockets are desperately trying to get back on track and the league's MVP helped that in a big way Thursday night. James Harden scored 50 points, handed out 11 assists and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Rockets beat LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers 126-111. The win, Houston's second straight, improves the Rockets (13-14) to one win under .500. Harden hit 14-26 shots to lead the way. Danuel House has been a significant addition as he was again huge off the bench, hitting 5-8 shots (including three triples) to score 15 points. The Rockets hit the road to play the 16-11 Grizzlies on Saturday.
