James Harden closes out 2016 with the most ridiculous triple-double ever

Good lord!

The last day of 2016 was as good a day as any for James Harden to absolutely ball out and destroy all other existing triple-doubles. In fact, he had the highest scoring triple-double in history, tying Wilt Chamberlain's 53 points with plays like this one.

Harden led the Rockets to a 129-122 win over the Knicks and now has eight on the season. The Beard also has his team sitting at 26-9 and third in the Western Conference. That's a pretty nice way to end 2016 if you ask me.
