VIDEO: Clippers triple-team James Harden on final possession with Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, JaMychal Green


Everyone knows James Harden is good. The Houston Rockets superstar can turn a game on its heels with his incredible shooting talent and clutch gene. He’s one of the best finishers in the game, and he could have easily won their game against the LA Clippers if he wanted to. Doc Rivers didn’t want to risk that happening, so he drew up a defensive play that will make fans scoff at the idea. Yes, Harden was triple-teamed by Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and JaMychal Green. If Patrick Beverley wasn’t ejected from the game, he would have been the third man on him.


Just taking a look at a still of the play is absurd.

The Clippers definitely won the game, but it only showed just how dangerous of a closer Harden can be for the Rockets. He’s already scored 37 points, so there’s no question that he could and would sink the game-tying three.

However, the W is all that matters. The Clippers are the ones laughing in the end thanks to Rivers’ brilliant play.
