James Harden Makes NBA History, Drops 50 Points Over the Lakers


LeBron James had 13 points, his fewest ever against Washington, on 5-of-16 shooting in 32 minutes.

Harden, the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player, added 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his second triple-double of the season and his second 50-point game of what has been a frustrating campaign for the Rockets so far.

Soon enough, LeBron James may go ahead and pressure team management to better equip his supporting cast for a playoff run.

Thursday was Harden's fourth 50-point triple-double, which is the most in National Basketball Association history. "I'm like what do I got?"

Johnson & Johnson knew about asbestos in its baby powder for decades, report
The company added that it remained confident that its products do not contain asbestos or cause cancer. J&J lawyers said: "Johnson & Johnson's baby powder is safe and asbestos-free".

Wall said the key for Washington was its defensive effort, something often missing this season. "Stop calling fouls.' But we can't, whether we get frustrated or not, we can't let that affect us going under screens or us not communicating". "It's tough", Walton said. "I feel like if one of us was in the same situation, he'll reach out and do the same as what we were doing so I feel like just being there for him will help".

The Lakers (17-10) have won six of seven games while climbing to fourth in the Western Conference.

"To defend them, you just can't touch them", said Kuzma.

If an opportunity comes around, do not be surprised if Los Angeles elects to part ways with Brandon Ingram, rather than Ball, Kuzma or Hart.

This isn't the first time Lakers guard Kyle Kuzma has caught shade for his off-court attire, but tonight's particular number had Twitter trolling him even harder than usual. "We knew we could get back in it if we were just poised and a little more patient offensively". Harden did what great players do and put the team on his back. LeBron says missing JaVale McGee hurt, as he is a "big money guy". A pair of sneakers James wore during a game at the Wizards a year ago Monday - one black, one white, with the word "equality" in capital gold letters on the back of each - was recently placed on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.

While Beasley's family time has short-circuited any chance to build momentum in the Lakers' rotation - he's averaging a career-low 4.4 points in just 7.1 minutes per game - he has become one of the most popular locker-room figures in L.A.
