On December 14th, the famous basketball team Houston Rockets won their eighth match, only due to their record setter player James Harden. Harden achieved a triple-double, which means 15 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists in only three quarters. It is the achievement of 5th triple-double for Harden in this season of basketball and the 14th one in his entire career of sports.

During this current basketball match, Houston Rockets was leading with 15 points in the third quarter of the match, ahead of their rival team Sacramento Kings, when the Houston players led much ahead with the score of 94 -58. Harden did his 10th rebound at this time and took one more rebound near the end of that quarter, by which time the match also got over. The other players of Houston, Ryan Anderson and Sam Dekker had also scored high points in this match.

Houston Rockets finally ended the match with 22 -3 pointers, where they got 15 3s in three direct rounds; and they were a bit short of tying with the prevailing National Basketball Association record of 23 3s in a single match. Harden has credited his success to his new coach Mike D’ Antoni, who taught him fast running offense tactics, as a result of which he could achieve 53 assists in the last 4 basketball matches. But his winning spree is continued since 2014, which is the longest for any player of National Basketball Association, as well as it is the longest for his team Houston Rockets too.
