James Harden does his usual thing

The Beard has 38 or more points in three straight games and four of his past five outings. He has managed three or more 3-pointers in five of his past six contests while rolling up two or more steals in four straight and six of the past seven. Harden continues to post huge fantasy totals and the Rockets will not rest their players until they're locked into a playoff seed, so the good times will continue to roll.

    James Harden scores 40 in triple-double

    That extends his NBA record seven 40-point triple-doubles in one season. Harden also has four consecutive triple-doubles, and it does help he's camping out under the rim more often these days. The Rockets are not expected to rest their players until they are locked in to their seed to allow them to grow as a team and develop chemistry. That is music to the ears of Harden fantasy owners.

    James Harden drops 41-14-11 line in loss

    Nobody else in the starting lineup scored more than eight points for the Rockets in this blowout loss. Harden played the entire third quarter and may have played the entire fourth, but the Rockets were just too far behind and coach Mike D'Antoni pulled the plug. This makes sense for the Rockets because they'll have to play in Denver on Saturday. Harden set the franchise record for most assists in a season, and he did it with almost a month to spare. He also has the most 40-point triple-doubles in a single season with six.

    James Harden posts another double-double

    That's triple-double No. 17 for Harden and also his league-leading 53rd double-double. As great as Harden is on the positive side, he's going to absolutely shatter the record for turnovers in a season, but who cares? His post-break stats are slightly down from his pre-break numbers due to a slight dip in usage, though. Harden isn't expected to rest going forward, so he's likely to be on a lot of championship fantasy squads.

    James Harden gets 38/11/10 in win vs. Cavs

    Harden sank four 3-pointers, making 13-of-28 field goals and 8-of-12 free throws with four turnovers. The MVP candidate's efforts helped fend off LeBron and the Cavs, resulting in an impressive 117-112 home victory. Houston is comfortably positioned as the No. 3 seed in the West -- they are six games behind the Spurs, but hold a 4.5-game advantage over the No. 4 seed Jazz.

    Harden says he won't rest down the stretch

    "I can’t afford to take nights off," Harden said. "That’s not what I get paid for. Obviously the money isn’t a factor, but I love playing the game of basketball." Coach Mike D'Antoni also said something similar. "He loves to play and he just won’t do it. I think he takes pride in playing all the games. Whether that’s good or not … he’s 27 years old and he feels good. So until he needs rest – and that comes from doctors and trainers and him – and I haven’t heard any of that at all," he said. Harden leads the NBA in total minutes played for the third straight season, and while he did tweak his ankle on Friday, he will be a full go on Sunday vs. the Cavaliers.

    James Harden had no issues with ankle

    He stepped on Denzel Valentine's foot at the end of the first quarter and was limping for a couple minutes. Harden returned and looked fine the rest of the way after a couple minutes off. He also said he doesn't plan on resting, which has to be a positive for his MVP case.

    James Harden doesn't plan to take nights off

    His durability and refusal to rest are two reasons Harden has been such a fantasy force this season. "I don't take nights off," Harden said. "That's not what I'm paid to do. I love playing the game of basketball. Frankly, I won't be playing forever. I am just taking advantage of the opportunity while I'm here." And although coach Mike D'Antoni would like to rest Harden occasionally, he knows that conversation would end quickly. "I think if I told him he needed to rest a night, I wouldn't get very far," D'Antoni said.

    James Harden scores 19, tweaks ankle

    He did step on Denzel Valentine's foot at the end of the first quarter. Harden tweaked his right ankle and went to the bench, but he was likely headed to the bench anyway after playing 12 minutes in the first quarter. He looked totally fine after and wasn't getting treatment outside of stretching his ankle out for about two minutes. Harden gets Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and the Cavs for a must-see national game. Hopefully the Cavs don't pull a Warriors.

    James Harden scores game-high 35 points

    Harden has already broken his own single-season record for turnovers, which he set last season, and the Rockets still have 17 games left in the regular season. The fact that he's averaging 5.8 turnovers per game has prevented him from earning the top spot in 9-cat leagues this season, but he's secured the honor in 8-cat, ahead of other studs like Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
