Los Angeles, March 20: Houston Rockets star James Harden became the first NBA player to score 30 or more points against all 29 opponents in a single season.

Harden posted 31 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in the Rockets' 121-105 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday (March 19).

The reigning MVP's performance saw him make more NBA history as the Rockets extended their winning streak to three games.
