Harden's run of 30-point performances now trails only NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, who posted runs of 20, 25, 31 and 65 games at various points from 1960-62. 

"I don't have anything to say," Harden told ESPN's Lisa Salters postgame. "I'm just trying to do whatever it takes to rack up as many wins as we can ... I'm just being me. A little bit more aggressive. Shots are falling. That's it."

The reigning Kia MVP is averaging 42.5 points and 8.9 assists over those 19 games.
