James Harden is doing all he possibly can to bring the Houston Rockets to the Promised Land. The 30-year-old former MVP is averaging 35.3 PPG at the break, but his team currently sits in fifth place in the crowded Western Conference. With the trade of center Clint Capela, the Rockets have now shifted to a "super small-ball " approach in what could be the last stand for the team under current coach Mike D'Antoni. And if this doesn't work? There's a chance everyone in the organization not named James Harden could be looking for work elsewhere come next season. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Harden is looking to become just the second player in the three-point era (1979-80 to present) to average 35 or more points per game in a season twice. In that time span, an NBA player has averaged 30 or more points per game for the season on just 37 occasions. So with that in mind, how many of those 37 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name every NBA player to average 30 or more PPG in the three-point era?
