James Harden has scored 30 pts in 7 of his last 8 meetings vs the Celtics; including three straight 40-pt games. Harden joins Wilt Chamberlain (2 streaks), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & Kobe Bryant as the only players to record three straight 40-point games against the Celtics.
Kyrie dropped 54 and only missed 4 shots. Only Wilt Chamberlain has missed fewer in a 50-point game 😮
James Harden turns 30 today. He’s coming off one of the greatest scoring seasons ever. ➖ 36.1 PPG ➖ Leader in FGs, 3s, PTs, FTs ➖ 28 40-point games ➖ Nine 50-point games ➖ Two 60-point games ➖ Scoring champ by 8.1 PPG ➖ Highest PPG ever besides MJ and Wilt
Russ is writing history this season. —First player ever to average 3 straight seasons with a triple-double —First 20/20/20 game since Wilt —Held longest-ever streak with a triple-double (11 games) Why not?
Congratulations to @KingJames for passing Laker great Wilt Chamberlain to become 5th all-time leading scorer in NBA history!
LeBron James' 1st career 60-point game would be no big deal to Wilt Chamberlain. Wilt dropped 60 THIRTY TWO times.
