It would be an understatement to say that Harden has been on a roll as of late, as he entered Thursday night's game having scored at least 40 points in four straight games.
And, with Houston playing in a primetime game in a rematch of the Western Conference Finals. it makes sense that Harden would bring out some of his best shots for the occasion.
He did just that with less than a minute remaining in the game by knocking down a huge shot from beyond the arc to tie things up and send the game into overtime.

At this point, it may be worth considering that James Harden is not in fact human. His scoring ability right now is just insane, and that's allowed Houston to completely turn things around this season after a slow start.
With Harden leading the way, there's no doubt that the Rockets can be one of the best teams in the NBA, and he continues to make big shot after big shot as they keep reeling off lots of wins.
Even if James Harden's magic isn't enough to give Houston the win in Oakland, he is certainly the frontrunner to capture the NBA MVP award yet again due to his tremendous scoring efforts.
After the game against the Warriors, the Rockets will hit the road to take on the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.
