50 IN THE BOOKS

Harden's 38-point, 17-assist night gives Rockets home win over Pelicans

The MVP just keeps playing like it. James Harden scored 38 points and handed out 17 assists, matching his career high, as the Rockets got some revenge on the Pelicans with a 117-107 win at Toyota Center Friday night. The win is Houston's 50th on the year, improving their record to 50-22. Harden was magnificent, hitting 12-24 shots and five triples, adding seven rebounds to boot. The Rockets struggled in the first half, turning it over 16 times and trailing by one heading to the locker room, but they only coughed it up three times in the second half. Patrick Beverley (17 points) was big in the fourth quarter when the Rockets started to get some distance on that lead. Another big factor was three-point shooting as they hit 7-12 from deep in that final quarter.
