James Harden drains game-winner to beat Warriors in overtime

James Harden is on an otherworldly tear right now.

James Harden was the hero on the night, knocking down the go-ahead bucket from deep with one second left in overtime as Houston erased a 20-point first half deficit to win their sixth game in a row.

The problem for the Warriors is they now have lost three straight games at home, with the past two coming on extremely hard game-winning 3-pointers in overtime to follow a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day.

That ultimately proved to be way too much time for Harden.

"The work. Yesterday I was in that same spot shooting the same shots", Harden said.


During the closing seconds of overtime, with the game knotted at 132, Kevin Durant lost control of the ball and was all the way (and I mean ALL THE WAY) out of bounds when he chucked the rock back onto the court - which resulted in a Steph Curry jumper to give the Warriors a two-point advantage. "And they miss a lot in general, so you can easily fool them". "It's a big time shot, and I'm happy we came out with the win".

Harden finished with 44 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds, his second straight 40-point triple-double. He shot 13-of-32 from the field and 10-of-23 from behind the arc.

Nevermind that this was his eighth consecutive game of 35 points or more.

For the Warriors, this continues their head-scratching uneven play the past two months. "He's a master of the isolation and the step-back 3 and drawing fouls. You are just going to foul him". Klay Thompson added 26.
