James Harden had a good night — 33 points on 25 shots to lead the Rockets to a victory, one that moved Houston back within a game of .500 and helps solidify their likely playoff position in the West.
But this was hysterically bad.
Harden’s first option on the drive was cut off, as was his planned kick to the corner for a three. So he waited for a second, and then I guess thought someone was cutting to that space. Or the ball slipped as he tried to make a pass. Or….
He can laugh about it now after the win.
