Video: Carmelo Anthony’s son goes all-out for his father on post-play versus James Harden

The Oklahoma City Thunder were feeling the Christmas spirit with their 112-107 win over the Chris Paul-less Houston Rockets. The Thunder continue to click on all cylinders with their Big Three putting on another impressive show.

Furthermore, superstar forward Carmelo Anthony has clearly started to find his rhythm in this Thunder offense. Perhaps his most impressive field goal came when he posted up Rockets superstar guard James Harden. Needless to say, the bucket over “The Beard” got the attention of Anthony’s son, Kiyan, who can be seen in the bottom left celebrating his dad’s shot.

It is safe to say that Carmelo Anthony’s matchup with James Harden was something his son had been hoping for. Fortunately, his father delivered with both an impressive shot and the win on Christmas Day.

Anthony recently discussed his developing role playing off the ball for the Thunder. However, he managed to make the most of his limited shots by scoring 20 points on an efficient 8-of-12 shooting. As a result, Oklahoma City was comfortable enough to set him up in an iso situation with the smaller Harden.

The Thunder had been on the receiving end of some scathing criticism for their underwhelming performance in the 2017-18 NBA season. However, they have since made tremendous strides after winning 11 of their 14 games in the month of December thus far.
