Rockets' James Harden hits game-winner in overtime, dropping 44-point triple-double in win over Warriors

It was a shoot-out in the Bay, with the Houston Rockets rallying in overtime to complete a huge comeback win over the Golden State Warriors 135-134.

James Harden was the hero on the night, knocking down the go-ahead bucket from deep with one second left in overtime as Houston erased a 20-point first half deficit to win their sixth game in a row.

Harden finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists, connecting on 10-of-23 from beyond the arc.

Clint Capela recorded 29 points and 21 rebounds, helping the Rockets cut the deficit with some strong play around the rim, but it was Harden who came up with the big bucket at the end of regulation to send it into OT.

Harden's recent offensive explosion has lifted the Rockets to fourth in the Western Conference and over the past 12 games, he is averaging 40.1 points per game, nine assists and 6.6 rebounds, with the Rockets going 11-1 over that span.

Steph Curry led the Warriors with 35 points and six assists, while Kevin Durant added 26 points and seven rebounds. Klay Thompson added 26.
