An American professional basketball player who plays for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA) is named as James Harden. While he was in Artesia, he was named McDonald’s All-American and also earned second-team Parade All-American honors. While he was at Arizona State he was also named first team All-District by the NABC and the USBWA.

James Harden sets Rockets record with 36 first-half points.

Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni worried Monday that James Harden was "dog tired" and would have to carry an even heavier burden with the news that a thumb injury would sideline center Clint Capela for four to six weeks and leave Houston without three starters. Harden's horrible 3-point shooting in Sunday's road loss to the Orlando Magic hinted that fatigue might be a factor for the reigning MVP. However, Harden responded by scoring a season-high 57 points Monday night, continuing his historical run by carrying the Rockets to a 112-94 home win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Harden, who has led the Rockets to a 13-4 record during this run, shrugged at being part of such exclusive company. "The win was important," Harden said. "I've got to get some rest tomorrow and be ready to go Wednesday. Same thing." James Harden got hot for 57 points, passed Kobe Bryant with 17 straight 30-point games and scored more than Memphis’ starters combined.
