When the Houston Rockets traded for James Harden, they knew they were getting an explosive player they could build around. One of the ways they decided to do that was add a star point guard, an All-Star center and throw them on the same court as Harden.
So far the plan has worked out alright as a whole, but Harden himself has been outstanding for the Rockets. The latest case of this was Harden faking the Celtics defense out of a perimeter shot before driving to the basket for a two-handed jam.
This is what we’ve come to expect form Harden, and while he likely would be doing nothing different were he still wearing an Oklahoma City Thunder uniform, Rockets fans can rest easy knowing that Harden will be doing it in Houston for the foreseeable future.
