Houston Rockets guard James Harden said being in the same conversation as Wilt Chamberlain is a “credit to the work that I put in” after scoring at least 30 points for the 20th consecutive game Monday night in a 121-93 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.” Wilt was doing some obviously unbelievable things and numbers that nobody will ever catch,” said Harden, who finished with 37 points despite sitting the entire fourth quarter as the Rockets were run out of Wells Fargo Center. “Just to be in the same conversation as those guys is just credit to the work I put in. That’s what you play this game for, to be listed with those guys, those top players.

“Obviously, I got a long way to go, but this is a pretty cool beginning.”

Harden joined Chamberlain as the only players in NBA history to have at least 20 straight games with 30 points or more, adding to the incandescent stretch of play he has put together since the middle of December. The last time he failed to score 30 points in a game was when he tallied 29 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Dec. 11, and he has scored exactly 200 points in his past four games – an achievement that has been done only six times in the past 50 seasons (four times by Kobe Bryant and twice by Harden).
