Rockets star James Harden throws nasty between the legs pass vs. Thunder
With the Rockets trailing early in the first quarter, Harden went off the dribble and found a slight opening in the Oklahoma City defense, which led to quite the assist to Clint Capela.
But it wasn’t just any assist, as Harden went between his legs for the pass, which wowed the crowd in Houston.

It’s no surprise to see Harden pulling out these types of moves, as everyone knows by now that he’s one of the most versatile players in the entire NBA.
And, once again, he’s putting together an awesome season by already averaging 32.0 points, 8.4 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game entering the matchup with the Thunder.
Harden has been on an absolute tear over the past few weeks in putting together a ton of high-scoring efforts, including a 50-point performance against the Los Angeles Lakers and a 47-point outing against the Utah Jazz.
His impressive play has played a huge role in helping the Rockets turn their season around after an 11-14 start. Houston entered today’s game at 17-15 overall and would love to be able to keep the momentum going before the start of the new year.
Next up for Harden and company is a matchup against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night before hitting the road for a showdown with the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.
The Rockets will then take on the Memphis Grizzlies on New Year’s Eve.
