"I'm enjoying the whole process of these last (few) games, just trying to win games," he said. "That's what I've been doing since Dwight has been out. I don't really keep track of the other (MVP candidates) or what they're doing. Obviously everybody knows that Russ is going on a triple-double rally. He's playing extremely well and they're fighting for the eighth spot. But all those guys you named (Curry, Westbrook, James, Davis and Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers) are very good players, or very talented players. For me, I just focus on what I can control and going out there and doing the best I can do every single right." USA Today Sports

Fittingly, the 50-point performance – the ninth in Rockets history – was the first since Olajuwon’s 51 against the Celtics in 1996, when the Rockets that lined the court on Thursday reigned as NBA’s champions as they reigned at Toyota Center on Thursday. “You know what, that’s a special group right there,” Harden said. “We’re trying to build something special like they did. To play a game in front of them was definitely an honor. Having those guys here made it a special night. It made it that much more special.” Houston Chronicle

Harden has averaged 22.7 points and 8.3 assists in that stretch, but when he failed to score 20 points against the Jazz and Blazers, it was just his second time scoring less than 20 points in consecutive games this season. Harden, however, was unconcerned that he would recapture his shooting touch. “I haven’t made a 3-pointer in two games,” Harden said. “It’s about repetition, getting back in the gym, finding my stroke a little bit and having confidence to go out and shoot it. Every shooter goes through a phase you’re not shooting the ball well. I’m not the first. I’m not the last. “I put up special work after practice to make sure I get some energy, get some work in. We have to be ready to go.” Houston Chronicle
