Following the game, Rockets owner Leslie Alexander told ESPN that Harden is “one of the great players of all time:”
“He’s one of the great players of all time. He ranks right up there with the best. I mean, nobody has ever done this before. The other team is playing hard and doing everything they could to stop him, and they couldn’t. He’s a fantastic player.”
