THE STREAK'S ALIVE!

Rockets crush Mavs, Harden scores 11 points in 99 seconds to extend streak

The 30+ point game streak lasted for an incredible 29 games but it looked like it was no more.

With 2:32 left in the game, James Harden, coming off a shoulder injury suffered in Saturday's loss to the Thunder and struggling all night with his shot, had just 20 points. But in a span of 99 seconds, Harden hit three triples and a pair of free throws to extend his 30+ point game streak to 30 games as the Rockets crushed the Mavericks 120-104.

Chris Paul was huge, scoring 17 points and handing out 11 assists without a single turnover, passing Gary Payton for 8th all-time in assists. He also hit 5-10 from long range. Gerald Green scorched off the pine, hitting 5-7 from deep and 7-11 from the field for 19 points.

Harden was just 9-23 from the field and 6-17 from long range, finishing with 31 points, also adding eight rebounds, seven assists and five steals.

Eric Gordon struggled a bit from deep (4-13 3P) but added 18 points while Kenneth Faried shook off a knee injury to score 17 points and grab eight rebounds.

Not to be overlooked -- the Rockets as a team hit 23 three-pointers on the night.
