Harden's 47 leads Rockets past Clippers 102-93

James Harden has been a little off from long range, but not Wednesday night.

Harden scored 47 points, hitting 7-13 from long range, as the Rockets dropped Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers 102-93 on national TV to improve to 8-3 on the year.

Harden added seven assists, six rebounds and connected on 16-17 from the line. He sealed the game with a straight strip of Kawhi, then found Tyson Chandler for a reverse alleyoop slam.

Clint Capela was outstanding, scoring 12 points and grabbing 20 rebounds before leaving the game late in the fourth with a head injury after JaMychal Green hit him on a drive. Russell Westbrook shook off early foul trouble (4 fouls in the first quarter alone?!) to score 17 points, including a pair of three-pointers in the fourth that were key.
