While James Harden isn't known for his defensive prowess, he showed off some slick moves on Friday (November 30) night. During the Houston Rockets 136-105 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, Harden was running down the court with DeMar DeRozan when DeRozan bumped Harden as he drove to the net for a lay-up.
Harden clearly did not appreciate the contact and swiped at the ball, knocking it out of DeRozan's hands, off his chest and out of bounds.
The reigning NBA MVP dropped 23 points and had 10 assists in the blowout win.
"We're a confident group that when we have all of our players and we've got a healthy roster we can compete with anybody in the league," Harden said after the game.
