Fizdale received a technical foul in the second half of the game for arguing the officials, but that didn't stop him from doing the exact same thing with roughly one minute remaining in the game. The 36 points tied the Rockets' record for most points in the first half, a record Harden himself set January 14 against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Harden also had 15 rebounds, five steals and four assists for the Rockets, who have alternated wins with losses in their last 11 games. Harden's average of 36.3 points is the highest since Michael Jordan averaged 37.1 points in 1986-87, and his lead over the No. 2 scorer is the league's largest gap since Jordan outscored Dominique Wilkins by 8.1 points for that '86-87 title. He is still behind Wilt in this record, who had streaks of 25 and 31 games, but this did place Harden's streak in fourth overall among all National Basketball Association players in history.

The Boston Celtics won their fifth-straight game with a 123-103 victory over the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers, while D'Angelo Russell claimed 25 points and 10 assists as the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 114-110.

Elsewhere, Thaddeus Young had 23 points and 15 rebounds as IN beat the first place Toronto Raptors 110-106 but the victory was costly as all-star Victor Oladipo suffered a serious right knee injury. The Knicks moved into the lead by the end of the quarter and stayed there the remainder of the half, stretching the lead to 13 before the Rockets trimmed it to 63-58 at the break.
