Rockets superstar James Harden is one of the toughest guards in the NBA, and he showed that on Tuesday night.
Harden suffered a brutal eye injury in the first quarter of the game, which forced him to get medical attention in the locker room. His eye was even bleeding, according to Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni, and it was a pretty gruesome injury.
But Harden showed how tough he is, returning to the game late in the second quarter, somehow, when many others would’ve missed the remainder of the contest. And just a few minutes after he returned, he pulled off a highlight-reel play. Check out the moves Harden put on Andre Iguodala to put the Warriors veteran on skates, then he calmly drained a three-pointer.
A thing of beauty.
