He's never been one to champion individual accolades, but James Harden saw multiple streaks end in Friday's loss to the Pacers.

Harden had 17 points, five rebounds, and seven assists on Friday. Ordinarily, for most, that would be a well-rounded game. However, Harden shot 5-19 from the field with five turnovers. To be fair, he was being defended by one of the best in the game, Paul George, all night long.

Bottom line: Harden didn't lead the team in scoring. Omer Asik did with 22 points. So his 20-game streak leading the team in scoring came to an end. This is the second longest streak in Rockets history behind Moses Malone's 23-game streak.

Another streak that ended? Harden's 22-game streak with at least 20 points.

For the last two games, Harden is now 10-42 from the field. He'll look to bounce back Saturday against the Timberwolves.
