A season ago, Russell Westbrook averaged a triple-double over a full season and, along the way, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard put together the highest-scoring performance during a game in which a player registered a triple-double in the history of the NBA. On Tuesday evening, James Harden surpassed his contemporary, as the Houston Rockets’ guard produced the first 60-point triple-double in the history of the league.

In Houston’s 114-107 victory over the Orlando Magic, Harden finished with 60 points (on a wildly efficient 19-for-30 shooting) to go along with 10 rebounds, 11 assists and four steals. Obviously, that kind of production speaks for itself and the triple-double achievement will take its rightful place in the history books.
