Eric Gordon, at the age of 31, joined the 50-point club as he scored a career-high 50 points in an NBA match. His stunning performance led Houston to the win, without James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Clint Capela. Rockets 126, Jazz 117 (final).
It should be noted that he is the first Rocket not named James Harden to drop 50 points since Hakeem Olajuwon in 1996. He becomes the 7th Rockets player to score 50 points in a game.
