James Harden scores career-high 51 to strengthen MVP case (video)


Stephen Curry is favorite to win MVP?

James Harden has something to say about that.

A day after replays of Curry crossing over Chris Paul flooded television and internet, Harden responded with 51 points in the Rockets win over the Kings.

This was prettier than Harden’s last 50-point game, when nearly half the points came from the free-throw line. Tonight, Harden was 8-of-16 on 2s, 8-of-9 on 3s and 11-of-13 on free throws:
