Don't look now NBA fans, but the Houston Rockets have rattled off eight wins out of nine, including Thursday night's victory over the Boston Celtics.
Much of that success can be credited to James Harden, who has been absolutely unconscious over the last few weeks, and it was much of the same last night, pouring in 45 points that included nine 3-pointers, which tied a career high.
The 29-year-old capped another dominant performance with an equally savage quote, stating that his haters are only helping bring out the dog in him.

According to ESPN, the 388 points Harden has scored in the last few weeks are the most by any NBA player in a 10-game stretch since Kobe Bryant scored 396 in 2007.
As far as dogs as concerned, WOOF.
