'Very Frustrating': James Harden Erupts for 58 Points in Loss to Nets

That allowed Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie to throw in some 3-pointers and eventually, the Nets to steal away the game.

"The man (Harden) had 60 (sic) and we won", Dinwiddie said.

The effort also marked Harden's 13th career 50-point game, moving past Lakers forward LeBron James for most among active players.

In the process, Harden tied Elgin Baylor for the fifth-longest 30-point game streak in National Basketball Association history.

Harden chipped in with 10 rebounds and six assists to add to his scoring tally as he admitted fatigue was a factor in the loss. He scored 57 against the Grizzlies on Monday.

"Frustrating", Harden said. "Very frustrating".

In the process, they broke their own record for three-point attempts, previously hoisting 61 against the New Orleans Pelicans in December 2016.

As for the actual game, the Rockets blew an eight-point lead with 1:02 left in regulation. The Rockets are 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight home games against a team with a losing road record, 14-3-1 ATS in their last 18 home games and 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games overall.

The Brooklyn Nets and the Houston Rockets duke it out at the Toyota Center on Wednesday night.

Brooklyn's Jarrett Allen had 21 points and a career-high 24 rebounds.

"But give them credit, they made some big shots".

"A little bit", he said. Harden's last basket that came off an assist came during the fourth quarter of Houston's loss to Orlando on Sunday (for the record, Clint Capela got the assist). The Nets and Magic will play three times in a two-week span beginning Friday.

Despite all the incredible numbers, there's one stat from Wednesday night that Harden would probably like to forget: The Rockets lost, despite leading by six points in the final 30 seconds of regulation.

Eric Gordon returned to the Rockets lineup Wednesday night, but did not return after leaving in the third quarter due to right knee soreness.
