DeRozan believes Harden 'could score 100' in a game .
Wilt Chamberlain has held the NBA's single-game scoring record of 100 points for nearly six decades. That accomplishment has felt untouchable for a long time, and understandably so, as the highest-scoring performance since then was Kobe Bryant's 81-point game in 2006. However, James Harden is quickly emerging as the next threat to break Chamberlain's mark following his scoring exploits this season. Some, including fellow Los Angeles native DeMar DeRozan, believe The Beard could do the unthinkable.
