#NBATogetherLive: James Harden creates history with 60-point triple-double in Houston Rockets win over Orlando Magic

On January 30, 2018, James Harden delivered a historic performance in the middle of an MVP campaign.

The Rockets would pick up the 114-107 win at the Toyota Center, though, it was the individual brilliance of Harden that completely stole the show.

The soon-to-be crowned MVP would put together a historic line of 60 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists - the first 60-point triple-double in NBA history.

Watch the historic performance on today's streamed #NBATogetherLive game:

Incredibly, Harden played all but 94 seconds in the game, finishing 19-for-30 from the field including a scorching hot 14-for-16 from two-point range.

It was the ninth time Harden had topped 50 points in a game, and the 60 helped him break Calvin Murphy's team-record of 57 points.

Harden would eventually top that career-high mark by dropping 61 points against the San Antonio Spurs in March, 2019.

Houston would finish the 2017-18 season with a 65-17 record, before eventually falling to the Golden State Warriors in seven games in the conference finals.
