The wicked crossover that James Harden pulled off against Wesley Johnson on Wednesday is still one of the most talked about plays in the basketball world. Videos of it are continuing to make its round on the internet, particularly on different social media platforms, and fans are even coming up with hilarious parodies of it. Now, a clip of the Spanish broadcast covering the game has emerged, making the play even better to watch.
Even for those who don’t speak the language, the animated and energetic delivery of the commentator makes it easy to understand why it has turned out to be one of the best plays of the season. By voicing out a concerned sound before raising his voice for what he saw, the color commentator just made it more enjoyable to see, via a video tweeted by ClutchFans.

The highlight reel worthy play was part of another solid performance from the Houston Rockets star guard, as he finished with 25 points, three rebounds, seven assists and two steals. He also received a lot of help from Clint Capela and Eric Gordon, who both recorded 22 points each to make it possible for them to beat the L.A. Clippers easily, 105-92.
The chatter about the disrespectful move from Harden is expected to continue in the coming days, which proves how good it really was, and that it’s worth watching over and over again. It also makes the possible matchup of both teams in the playoffs a must-watch, as it could fire up Johnson to avenge what was done to him, and The Beard, motivated even more to pull a similar move on the veteran forward and advance to the next round.
