Watch: James Harden, Dejounte Murray get into shoving match
James Harden and Dejounte Murray got into a bit of a shoving match early in Monday night’s game between the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs.
Murray stole the ball and got an easy transition layup to extend his team’s lead to 22-7 late in the first quarter. Harden wasn’t happy and bumped Murray under the basket after the layup. Murray bumped Harden right back and then shoved the Rockets star.

Credit to Murray for not backing down after that cheap shot from Harden. There was no need for the bump, and it’s good Murray stood up for himself after it.
