Modern-day NBA has paved the way for more scoring explosions—the penchant for the three-ball, the trend of defensive regression, and the surplus of offensive-minded superstars usually taking center stage during the league's most exciting games.

However, whenever a player hits the 50-point mark, it's always a marvel to behold. Prime examples: super scorers LeBron James and James Harden, who were able to accomplish this feat over the past few days.

Now, the question is: Which big-game James was more impressive?


LeBron James

57 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks (W vs Washington Wizards, 130-122)

Mired in a four-game losing streak, the King forced his way into the zone, en route to his 11th 50-point game. James, who did it in efficient fashion (23-of-34 field goals, 9-of-9 free throws), is now the youngest player to reach 29,000 career points, and has scored at least 10 for the 800th game in a row. If only they won their next game against the Atlanta Hawks...

James Harden

56 points, 13 assists, 7 three-pointers made (W vs Utah Jazz, 137-110)

The Beard's career-high was actually a point shy of the Houston Rockets' record, but more importantly, he pulled it off in just 35 minutes. He became the second player in league history to put up 50 points and 10 assists while shooting better than 75 percent from the field, behind Wilt Chamberlain. Here's why Harden had the better performance than LeBron:
