James Harden wins Western Conference Player of the Week

The Beard does it again!

NBA: Orlando Magic at Houston Rockets Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

According to sources, James Harden has won the Western Conference Player of the Week award for the week.

Harden averaged 34.7 points per game, 10.3 assists per game and six rebounds per game as he led Houston to three wins in the past week against the Orlando Magic, San Antonio Spurs, and Cleveland Cavaliers.

The highlight of the week was clearly Harden’s efforts against the Magic when he recorded the first 60-point triple-double in NBA history. Harden also tacked on 11 assists in 10 rebounds as he received the single-game franchise record for points in a game after Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy held the record for four decades.

This is Harden’s fourth Player of the Week award this season and first since December. He is one of two Rockets to win the award this season as Chris Paul achieved the feat back in mid-December.

Congrats to the Beard!
