Harden surpasses 10,000 career points

Houston Rockets superstar James Harden scored his 10,000th career point during his side’s 107-104 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. 

Harden, who currently sits on 10,005 points, became only the seventh player since 1985 to score 10,000 points, grab 2,000 rebounds, dish out 2,000 assists and record 700 steals and 200 blocks in less than 500 games.

Harden has been the Rockets’ go-to player for a majority of the current season in which Houston has won 21 of their 40 games.

The 26-year-old is averaging 28 points, the second-highest in the league behind Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, 6.0 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game this season.
