Western Conference All-Stars James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been putting up video game numbers all season long, and each player is currently on a historic streak of production.

Harden, the NBA’s leading scorer by a wide margin, has scored 30 points or more in 30 consecutive games dating back to December 8th. During that span, Harden has 16 40-point games, three 50-point games, and a career-high of 61.

Westbrook, meanwhile, is on pace to average a triple-double for the third-consecutive season, and just set a new NBA record with a streak of 10 consecutive triple-doubles. Wilt Chamberlain set the previous record of nine straight in 1968.

Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan was asked which streak is tougher to accomplish as a player – and didn’t miss the opportunity to point out his own greatness.

Michael Jordan’s response to what is tougher to achieve – James Harden’s streak of 30 straight 30-point games OR Russell Westbrook’s 10 straight triple doubles… Classic Jordan.

 
 

“I’m very proud of how both guys have done because they’re making their mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league.

Which is harder from a player’s perspective? Six championships, by all means.”
