CHARLOTTE, N.C. _ Michael Jordan says James Harden’s streak of 30 straight 30-point games and Russell Westbrook’s 10 straight triple-doubles are both impressive and tough to accomplish. But the Charlotte Hornets owner said Tuesday _ flashing a big grin _ that there is one accomplishment tougher than both those feats: “Which is harder from the player’s standpoint? Six championships by all means.” Harden needed a late scoring spree on Monday night to extend his streak to 30 games, scoring 11 points in the final 100 seconds as the Rockets beat Dallas 120-104. Harden, playing with a strained left shoulder, reached the 30-point mark by swishing a 30-foot pull-up jumper. By Steve Reed. SENT: 250 words, with photos.
