“It wasn’t a good 42,” Karl-Anthony Towns said. “It wasn’t a 42 that he’s been getting recently, you know. He had to work for it.” Towns had 25 points, Jeff Teague had 27 points and 12 rebounds, and Okogie locked down Harden when it counted most to help the Timberwolves beat the Houston Rockets 121-111. Harden scored 30 or more points for the 31st consecutive game, tying Wilt Chamberlain for the second-longest streak in league history.
Added Rivers, “He leads more by example. He’s not a rah-rah guy. … We go as James goes. That’s no secret. Obviously, he’s playing the best basketball in the league and that’s not even a debate. I don’t even know how the MVP thing is a debate anymore after what the fuck he’s been doing. We’re gonna go as he goes, ultimately. I think he doesn’t really have to lead in terms of vocal. You leave that to other guys. He does everything else.”
Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan was asked which streak is tougher to accomplish as a player – and didn’t miss the opportunity to point out his own greatness. “I’m very proud of how both guys have done because they’re making their mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league. Which is harder from a player’s perspective? Six championships, by all means.”
Storyline: Old School vs. New School
SLAM Magazine: MJ was asked which was harder: Russ’ triple-double streak or Harden’s 30-point streak? “6 championships by all means.” 🏆 (via @SteveReedAP) pic.twitter.com/q9SvSJRS91
