    Harden just becomes the first player to play less than 30 minutes in a game and get a triple-double with at least 25 points according to bbref: https://www.basketball-reference.co...&c2comp=lt&c2val=32&is_trp_dbl=Y&order_by=pts

    I know the above link searches by the total minutes played in a game, so probably someone else(or Harden himself) has got a 25+ points triple-double in less than 30 minutes and keeps playing. Still, it's very impressive, after all, it's not just a 25 points triple-double, it's a 40+ points triple-double.

    Harden now holds the record for fastest 30+, 40+, 50+ and 60+ points triple-double.

    Your query only seems to search this year's games, doesn't it?

    I know Harden has 40, 50 and 60, but do you have a reference for 30?

    Feel like WB would have done it under 30 as well.

    Still, the framing should be - the only player to have a 25+ point tribble double with less than 30 minutes played.

    Instead of - fastest 25 point+ triple double

    PJ Tucker with a box out that would put Steven Adams to shame. Damn near forced Harden to get that rebound.

    In the post game interview PJ Tucker said he wanted dinner and a movie for that box out. Harden was told and said he could have anything he wants: dinner, movie, trip to Europe

    Westbrook’s Highlander sense went into overdrive when Harden made the triple dub.

    Definitely the only 40pt trip dub in less than 30 minutes of total minutes.


    Yes, Jokic reached 25pts in 27:46, but kept playing to reach the 30pt trip dub (but at around 31 minutes). In that game last year, he recording the fastest trip dub ever, too, at 14:33.

    I arrived at 27:46 for his 25th point by reading the PbP at bballref. Easy to just subtract from end of game. He played until 36 seconds remaining, and score 25 at 6:37 left in 4th.

    MDA told James he only had 3 quarters to do whatever.

    Harden made the necessary adjustment for his time restraint.
