James Harden's commanding performance during Wednesday night's 118-98 Game 2 victory over the Utah Jazz put the Houston Rockets All-Star in the history books.

With 32 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in 33 minutes of action, Harden became just the sixth player in NBA history to register multiple 30-point triple-doubles in the playoffs.

LeBron James (12), Oscar Robertson (8), Russell Westbrook (6), Charles Barkley (2), and Wilt Chamberlain (2) are the others.

"He's a machine. He just scores," Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni said of Harden postgame.

Harden nearly notched a triple-double in the first half alone, posting 25 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists to help Houston lead by 26 at halftime.

The Rockets take a 2-0 series lead to Salt Lake City for Game 3 at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Saturday.
