Netflix has warned against taking part in the "Bird Box Challenge", but it appears National Basketball Association refs officiating last night's Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors game didn't get the memo.
This marks the sixth time Harden has received the honor in his career, all coming as a Houston Rocket, according to the team.
Harden finished the game with a triple-double - 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds. The Rockets are now on a 49-win pace, though their latest hot streak has them only 3.5 games out of the West's No.1 seed. "It's simple as that", said Harden about people critical of his playing style.
One of the worst calls you'll see by officials this season took place during Thursday's Rockets-Warriors game at Oracle Arena, and it's hard to understand how the refs missed it. The Rockets, after a dismal 11-14 start to the season, now sit at 22-16 after a six-game winning streak, and their general manager is thinking big picture after downing the Warriors.
Harden leads the league in scoring (33.3 ppg) and ranks fourth in assists with 8.6 apg.
Herein lies the problem with the play of James Harden.

Leonard requested a trade in June amidst reports of tension between his representatives and the Spurs' front office. Leonard scored 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting, but was showered with boos and jeers throughout the contest.
Nevermind that this was his fifth straight 40-point game.
After a back-and-forth game, Harden had to hit a 30-foot step-back jumper to get his team into overtime.
At this rate, Harden will break Curry's record for the most 3-point attempts per game (11.2) in a single season - Harden is now up to 12.2 3-point attempts per game.
While Harden is well aware of his prowess, he wishes pundits and fans would stop focusing on one of the underlying reasons for his gaudy point totals - the frequency with which referees reward him with trips to the free-throw line. The 29-year-old guard has played at a level even more impressive than his 2017-18 MVP campaign.
Whereas Harden's usage sat at 36.2 percent in the lead-up to Paul's injury, it's spiked to 42.9 percent in the games since.
