Is James Harden a Better Player Than LeBron James Currently?

WATCH James Harden Hits Ridiculous 3 To Beat Warriors In Overtime

Harden's MVP level play continued in Golden State where he absolutely torched the champs, tallying yet another 40-point triple-double.

Harden's backcourt mate Chris Paul has missed the last six games, and yet here are the Rockets, undefeated in those games, capped off by an incredible 20-point comeback against the Golden State Warriors Thursday night in Oracle Arena. Harden stared down Draymond Green after hitting the game-winning three over Green's outstretched arms, then had words with him a few moments later.

Harden finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists, connecting on 10-of-23 from beyond the arc.

Houston's defense has been better than it was at the start of the season, but Harden's seemingly impossible numbers have been the driving force in the Rockets' victories.

The Warriors, who remain near the top of the Western Conference, understand that they are a marked target.

Burnett, 85, a five-time Globes victor , will receive the inaugural Carol Burnett Award, which focuses on television. And, as for talking about Donald Trump , the Grey's Anatomy star said she's 'not interested'. "That changes things.

While it seemed the Warriors were going to hold them off, a critical 6-0 run in the final 1:03 left in the game, capped by a huge Harden step-back 3-pointer over Kevin Durant, tied it up 119-119.

He was traded to the Rockets from the Thunder in October 2012, and Morey says Houston wants to do everything it can to maximize Harden's prime years in the league. The reigning MVP has scored at least 30 points in 11 straight games with five consecutive 40-plus point games. He's averaging 31.8 FanDuel points through 25 games this season.

Most impressive of all is that Harden has scored 40 or more points in five straight games, joining Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson as the only players in National Basketball Association history to score that many points in that many consecutive games.

That's in line with what Harden has been doing all season long.
