James Harden scores 60 points in 3 quarters of Rockets' blowout win over Hawks

James Harden scored a season-high 60 points in three quarters and the Houston Rockets sent the struggling Atlanta Hawks to their 10th straight loss with a 158-111 romp on Saturday night.

Harden joins Klay Thompson and Kobe Bryant as the only players to hit 60 points in just three quarters.

He exited with the Rockets up 127-73 at the end of three, having gone 16-of-24 from the field, 8-of-14 from three-point range and 20-of-23 at the free throw line in just 31 minutes.

His 24 shot attempts are the fewest ever in a 60-point game in NBA history.
