Harden 45th player to reach 20,000 points after beat Wolves

Rockets' James Harden becomes 45th player to reach 20,000 points in All-Time NBA Scoring list.





James Harden has been scoring prodigiously for several seasons. And on Saturday, he scaled another points-based plateau, becoming the 45th player in NBA history to score 20,000 career points.

And yet, the All-NBA guard didn’t have much to say after he surpassed the total in the second quarter of Houston’s blowout win over Minnesota Wolves .

“It’s a great accomplishment obviously,” he said. “I have a bigger picture and bigger goals but it’s pretty cool.”

“To be able to do that on a very, very high level is something we don’t take for granted,” Westbrook said. “Growing up in L.A. and being able to see him progress over the years to me is just a blessing to see as his friend and I’m truly happy for him.”

“’She has everything,” Harden said. “Every goal and achievement that I have, she has it. I gave it to her and she’ll put it in a safe place.”


Harden scored 32 points, adding 12 rebounds and eight assists in just three quarters, to help the Rockets roll to the 139-109.

The 30-year-old Harden, who had 12 rebounds and eight assists, is the 45th player in NBA history to reach 20,000 points and the seventh-youngest. He entered the game 10 points away and reached the milestone in fitting fashion, on a step-back 3-pointer midway through the second quarter.
