    With 44 points tonight, Harden is averaging 33.59 points a game and passed 1966 Wilt Chamberlain and 1990 Michael Jordan to move into the 16th best PPG total of all time.

    Next up is Elgin Baylor and Tiny Archibald at 33.99 PPG.

    Harden is a BEAST.

    We really need Gordon and CP3 back, the bench and other role players are getting better in the system, it's unhealthy for Harden to do this night in and night out.

    He ****ing took 23 3's tonight.

    Harden is having a better scoring season than 05-06 Kobe and a better 3 point shooting season than 15-16 Steph when u take efficiency and degree of difficulty into account

    If He took 23 mid range shots would we care? I think Harden has turned the 3pt shot into a mid range shot. His 3 point shoots look easy.

    Harden actually has a chance of averaging the most points per possession in a season, ever. Right now he’s third, just barely behind Kobe’s and Michael’s best seasons.

    Any idea where to find PP100 for a specific set of games? I only know how to get it for full seasons.

    Last time I did some back-of-the-envelope math, Harden was averaging something ridiculous like 49.5 PP100 over his monster run.

    With the 57 point game tonight, Harden is now at 34.8 points per game, passing 1975 Bob McAdoo, 1965 Chamberlain and 1961 Elgin Baylor to check in at #11 on the all time list for Points per Game in a season.

    He's now .04 PPG away from passing Kareem and entering the Top 10.

    I predicted he would get into the Top 10 by the end of the month. It took him two games. He's simply amazing.
