Harden hits bucket off the shot clock

Harden drew the foul on the shot attempt when the Rockets were still up big (60-38 at the close of the second half). Houston would eventually blow the lead.

James Harden drew the foul driving into the lane and threw up a shot that banked off the shot clock and into the basket.

Attempts off shot clocks don't count, but it was a charmed moment for the Rockets as they were still up big (60-38 at the close of the second half.)

Houston, of course, would eventually blow the lead.

It was the tale of two halves. We were kind of like them in the first half and they were like us in the second.

Mike D'Antoni
Head coach, Houston Rockets

Harden finished with 34 points in the close loss, including going 15 of 15 from the free throw line.
