Harden becomes Pistons' headache in Houston

Presented an opportunity to take a shot at the teams that have utilized exotic defensive sets designed to stifle his scoring rampages, Houston Rockets guard James Harden did against the Orlando Magic on Friday what he accomplished in his previous game against the Cleveland Cavaliers: He rarely missed.

Two nights after pouring in 55 points on 20-for-34 shooting in Cleveland, Harden torched Orlando for 54 points while making 19 of 31 attempts. Harden matched the franchise record of 10 3-pointers against the Cavaliers and bested that effort percentage-wise on Friday in Orlando, finishing 10 of 15 from behind the arc in the Rockets' 130-107 runaway win.

Harden, who connected on 20 of 33 3-pointers during the brief two-game road trip, will look to remain scorching hot when the Rockets host the Detroit Pistons on Saturday at Toyota Center.
