Kevin Durant, LeBron James react to James Harden's historical performance

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.

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 National Basketball Association.

The Rockets began the contest without Chris Paul (sore groin), and Trevor Ariza (strained hamstring). Harden responded by scoring a mind-boggling 52 percent of his team's total points in the win.

National Basketball Association players took to social media to congratulate Harden. They lost another player when Eric Gordon, who is second on the team in scoring with 19.5 points a game, left early in the second quarter with lower back stiffness.

Harden more than made up for CP3's absence as he accounted for 86 of his team's 114 points.

"I've been in the league 10 years, so I've seen some guys go off like that", said Magic guard D.J. Augustin.

Anthony Davis had 23 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Pelicans, who fell to 0-2 since losing All-Star forward DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending Achilles injury. But tonight I ain't going to lie. "But we had to have every minute from him". Tuesday's performance bested his previous career high of 56 points set in November against the Utah Jazz.

Speights made a 3-pointer to put Orlando back on top with just under a minute remaining in the quarter, but Houston scored the last four points of the quarter to take a 90-88 lead into the fourth. "I caught myself just being a true fan throughout the whole game. what he did today was remarkable".

Orlando initially rode Fournier on offense, as he tallied 10 points in the first quarter including back-to-back 3-pointers that helped the Magic erase an early five-point deficit.

Cleveland star LeBron James gave Harden some love on Twitter after the game, tweeting in part: "That's insane G!"

Stanley Johnson scored a career-high 26 points, and Detroit snapped an eight-game losing streak by defeating visiting Cleveland. 60 point Triple Dub. Despite the arrival of Paul, Harden hasn't seemed to miss a step.
