James Harden hits a ridiculous buzzer-beater

This game is great! #Bearding to end the quarter! pic.twitter.com/W6zQxhHv9W — Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets) April 24, 2016 What an unbelievable shot that should have been a four-point play. This was James Harden's first made shot of the game so far. The Rockets quickly took the lead in the second quarter. The Warriors are fully healthy. This is seriously happening and it is awesome.

Jason Terry crosses up Stephen Curry

Here's a highlight they won't show you on SportsCenter Jason Terry is 38. Stephen Curry is the likely two-time MVP of the NBA. Sometimes great players get beat on defense. It happens! Bad defense is not news. But in this wackadoo world, whenever James Harden gets beat, it's a "shareable moment." So here's Stephen Curry getting beat off the dribble — without getting screened or tripped — by the sixth-oldest player in the NBA. It's on the record.

Rockets vs. Warriors Game 4 preview: Can Houston tie it up with Curry in?

You never know! Chances are, when the MVP returns to play against the Rockets this afternoon in Houston for Game 4, the Warriors will return to their destructive ways and tear the Rockets apart. I repeat: the Rockets have only beaten a Curry-led Warriors team once in their last 12 attempts. But in Game 3, the Rockets looked to have figured something out. Dwight Howard played his ass off, James Harden had room to drive, dish and shoot, and the boards belonged to the Rockets. It was their most complete three quarters they've played against the Warriors since Game 4 last year. Obviously, the...

On James Harden's Clutch Shot

James Harden hit a clutch shot. It was awesome. The inbounds before, the bench reaction, Draymond Green's kerfuffle, and the inbounds after are all parentheticals to me. I don't care. James Harden played hero for a minute, and I want to talk about it. People, for some reason, love to talk about James Harden's leadership qualities, or lack thereof. Many of these accusations are, although I hate to say it, are completely fair. He does tend to shrink in moments. He has entire games where it looks as if he's checked out. The best I've heard it described was on back on Grantland, and I'm...

Harden's 35 sends Rockets past Warriors in Game 3

The Beard went Beard and also drained the game winner in the closing seconds. It was almost another vintage Rockets collapse. You've seen it many times this season. Houston blew a 17-point lead and were down to the Golden State Warriors by 1 point with under 10-seconds left. But with the Rockets teetering on the brink, in one of the most clutch playoff moments of his career to this point, James Harden cashed a turnaround jumper over Andre Iguodala with just 2.7 seconds remaining in the game, his 35th point of the night. On the ensuing play, in a moment fitting of my own personal dislike...

Sorry, Stephen Curry and the Houston bench but CLUTCH CITY is back Tough game-winner by @JHarden13! https://t.co/OJ8E45XWle — NBA TV (@NBATV) April 22, 2016 Clutch, clutch, clutch. Clutch city is back on track. The Rockets beat the Warriors 97 - 96 in Game 3 of the NBA playoffs. James Harden provided the game-winning shot like easy, breezy, beautiful cover girl. The Warriors now have a 2 - 1 lead in the series. Not all the Rockets were pleased with Harden's shot. Why so sad? No travel insurance?
