HOUSTON (AP) Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni has witnessed James Harden have the only 60-point triple-double in NBA history, lead Houston to the Western Conference finals and win his first MVP award.

But what Harden has done for the previously underperforming Rockets in the last three games has topped anything the veteran coach has seen from his superstar player.

"I know he's the MVP and everything, but this level the last three or four games is where it's really high," D'Antoni said. "It's as good as he's ever played."
