Rockets guard James Harden said he has had no issues in the days following his hard fall in Denver on Saturday, but his left wrist was wrapped for Monday's shootaround. "I just wanted to look good," Harden said. Harden did not leave the game on Saturday. He made 3 of his remaining 8 shots and 4 of 5 free throws after he landed hard on the court trying to block a Mason Plumlee shot. He finished with 40 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, becoming the first player in league history to have 40-point triple doubles on consecutive nights, and said he has no intention of taking games off when healthy. "I'm a hooper," Harden said. "I just want to hoop. I'll rest when I'm done. I feel like my teammates and organization need me to go out there and do what I do. I get obviously paid for it, but it's something I love. I enjoy the grind. I enjoy how hard it is. I think that makes you tougher. That makes you who you are." Harden added he does not want Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni to order him to take a break. "Mike knows not to come at me with that," Harden said.
