Shame on the NBA for putting together a 2 minute montage of James Harden’s career night against his former team and not show his most spectacular play. Yes a bunch of drives to the basket on his way to a career high 46 was spectacular. Yes his half court buzzer beater was spectacular but his one-on-one moves and pull up jumper on Serge Ibaka is just sick…and MIA with the NBA clip.
Thankfully some nice folks on YouTube like MR FunkyAxe111 took the NBA.com recap and reposted it for everybody else to see on YT. If you go to the 1:24 second mark of the above video you will see the spectacular/sick move I just mentioned.
Harden’s ex teammate Kevin Durant was pretty spectacular himself, finishing the game with a triple double line of 16 points 12 rebounds and 11 assists. Westbrook had 28 and the former Rocket, Kevin Martin, that was traded for Harden had 28 off the bench. Jeremy Lin 1 upped those two with 29 but this game was MVP candidate James Harden’s game. He only needed a LeBron like 19 shots to score his career high of 46. He was 7-8 from downtown and 11-12 from the charity stripe. Toss in 8 boards and 6 dimes and a couple oh s**t highlights and you have one of the most spectacular games of the season.
