After Harden broke the record, cameras in the arena showed a shot of Murphy, who works on the television broadcast team, smiling and clapping for the Beard, who also had 10 rebounds and 11 assists. It was the first time any player in National Basketball Association history tallied a triple-double with 60 points. This was his third triple-double of the season and he could be primed to continue to go off for the rest of the week, as Chris Paul and Trevor Ariza were out for this one, and Eric Gordon left with back stiffness.

The Rockets were up by 1 early in the third quarter when Harden scored all of the team's points in a 6-2 spurt that made it 64-59.

"It was incredible. We had to have every minute from him", he said.

"I have never seen a performance like that, " said Harden's teammate Gerald Green.

"C'mon @JHarden13! Now that's insane G!" Love exited in the first quarter with a broken left hand, and the Pistons took advantage of his absence, snapping an eight-game losing streak despite a roster that was depleted by their blockbuster trade for Blake Griffin. 60 point Triple Dub. Simmons and Mack added 15 points each. Coach Mike D'Antoni said he doesn't expect Paul to miss much time with his injury.
