Harden: Focus on 'greatness of what I'm doing,' not foul calls

Following their overtime win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday, in which Harden led the way with 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds, the Rockets have won 11 of their last 12 games.

(Harden's) doing stuff that no one in National Basketball Association history has done, or very few. "I just had to go out and do my part on the highest level".

The mind-blowing sequence happened late in an overtime thriller between the two teams who went to seven games during last year's Western Conference Finals.

Harden finished with more than 40 points for the fifth straight game and Capela added 29 points and 21 rebounds.

James Harden then proceeded to hit an absurd game-winning 3-pointer to effectively wipe out Durant's play, which came with him obviously out of bounds. In addition, the Rockets have the league's best record since Harden's scoring streak began on December 11.

"He just did what he does", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, via 95.7 The Game.

The Warriors were relatively successful with their top priority of defending Harden, which was to limit his trips to the free throw line.

The ball would find its way to Stephen Curry who nailed a jumper with 23.1 seconds let to put Golden State up 134-132 before Harden's heroics.

He also has 13 double-doubles on the season, tying him with Jrue Holiday for the third-most among guards.

"I've got the total package", Harden said.

"[People] talk too much about my fouls and not actually the greatness of what I'm doing out there on the court".
