Porter finished with 50 points on 16-of-26 shooting, 11 assists, five rebounds, and a career-high nine 3-pointers in the victory.
"After I saw the third three go down, I knew it was going to be a special night," Porter said postgame, per ESPN. "It was all up to me. I just stayed aggressive, and it was a good night."
Porter, who was playing in his first game since being fined $50,000 for violating the league's health and safety protocols after attending a Miami club, joined James, Devin Booker, and Brandon Jennings as the only players to score 50 points before turning 21.
The Rockets snapped a five-game losing streak with the victory.
