James Harden scores 56 points against the Utah Jazz: Postgame Reaction

The Utah Jazz lose big in Houston

NBA: Utah Jazz at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

James Harden went OFF against the Utah Jazz sunday night scoring 56 points on a ridiculous 76% from the field! At the end of the first half, Harden was a perfect 10/10 for 30 points. This has to go down as one of his greatest performances. And for the Houston Rockets as a team? They’re showing they’re a legit contender this season.

For the Utah Jazz, the bright side was the play of Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell scored 17 points while shooting 3/7 from three. He’s showing remarkable consistency for a player with only 10 games under his belt. It’s only a matter of time before he finds himself in the starting lineup.
