James Harden Doesn’t Even Pretend To Play Defense

James Harden hit seven three’s against the Knicks and finished the game with 36 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds leading the Rockets to a 101-96 win. Harden’s offensive performance wasn’t the talk of the night though.

During the first quarter the Knicks pushed the ball up the floor, Harden stood at half court and made no effort whatsoever to get a stop, let alone slow them down. Harden’s defensive prowess and awareness has been the biggest criticism he has faced in his career thus far. Plays like this make you wonder if he will ever take defense seriously.
