James Harden is on an absolute tear. Last year’s league MVP is staking his claim for a second consecutive most valuable player award with his play over the last month.

Harden, who now leads the league in points per game, just dropped 57 points against the Memphis Grizzlies. The 50+ point outburst marked Harden’s 17th straight game with over 30 points, breaking the previous record of 16 consecutive games held by Kobe Bryant.
