Rockets lean on Harden vs. Jazz

HOUSTON -- For as much as the Houston Rockets try to avoid dumping everything at the feet of All-NBA guard James Harden, there are times when that weight does not seem too great for him to bear.

With Harden recording a second consecutive triple-double, the Rockets (14-14) claimed their third successive victory and again evened their record with a 105-97 victory in Memphis on Saturday. The peril of asking Harden to shoulder too much of a burden has played out in postseasons past, with Harden succumbing to fatigue at inopportune times.

Still, when Harden is at his best like he was in producing his fourth career 50-point triple-double last Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers, it is easy to wonder what inspires such stunning bursts of productivity. When asked precisely that, Harden does not mind boasting.
