Jordan: 6 NBA titles tougher than Harden, Westbrook streaks

By Steve Reed, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Michael Jordan says James Harden’s streak of 30 straight 30-point games and Russell Westbrook’s 10 straight triple-doubles are both impressive and tough to accomplish.

Harden, who is playing with a strained left shoulder, reached the 30-point mark by swishing a 30-foot pull-up jumper. Westbrook finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists to notch his 10th straight triple-double in the Thunder’s 120-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, breaking a tie with Wilt Chamberlain for the most consecutive triple doubles. Both players will be in Charlotte this weekend for the All-Star game......»»
