After 27 games (equivalent to one third of a season) the Rockets are 26-1 when their big-3 all play... a 79-win pace. from nba

When Harden, Paul, and Capela are on the floor together, their record is 26-1... a pace equivalent to 79 wins. As the user points out, they could potentially smash the Warriors' 73-9 season.

It's a shame the Rockets haven;t had durability on their side this year, but the stats still prove they're one of the best in the West.
