James Harden took it back to the playground against the Sixers on Saturday. The Rockets guard went behind his back and then between his legs on a crossover dribble to shake Jrue Holiday on a fastbreak in the fourth quarter.
That’s the kind of move you expect to see in some And 1 game, not during an NBA contest. Who even thinks of doing that on the fly?
Harden finished with 29 points in Houston’s 107-100 loss to Philly. He is fourth in the NBA in scoring. Despite getting fooled on that play, Holiday had 30 points and nine assists as he continues to play at an All-Star level.
