[Video] James Harden's 17-point 4th quarter to beat Timberwolves
You're usually begging your superstar players to attack the basket. I don't think two dozen horses with lassos could keep James Harden from going hard to the hoop. Watch this guy ... just amazing, especially in the final minute. Teams KNOW this is what he does and they still can't stop it.

James Harden scores 17 points in the fourth quarter to help the Rockets beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 87-84 on 12/26/2012

Awesome 4th quarter.

You know he is going left, you know he will probably go for the eurostep, but there you aren't stopping him.

Thanks for the video!

James Harden is the anti-Kevin Martin.

brings tears to my eyes to see the coach Mchale . He is like a father to this team.

Clutch, thanks brother. What a finish, closed like a future MVP!

Wasn't even "4th quarter", alot of those points were in the last 6 minutes of the game.

Just unreal.

Speaking of wild horses, this is how asst coach Chris Finch (one of our offensive coordinators) envisioned our offense to be. This is taken from before the season started.

JCF: I know you believe in freedom on offense and virtually no freedom on defense. What do you want to define this team offensively?

CF: I want us to always be on the attack. I want us to look and feel like a herd of horses coming down the floor every single time. I want us to really, first and foremost, put the defense under pressure every way possible and I want to see us share the ball. We want to run and keep the tempo high, but to do that we have to value the right shots and we have to do it unselfishly.

Certainly the team seems to have bought into this plan and we are reaping the benefits of it. Tonight, Harden was a one-man runaway herd.

The last two possessions were high pick and rolls with Asik and Harden. I wonder if we were saving that for crunch time on purpose...if so, nicely played McHale.

Morris left Mchale hanging. On a serious note. Jeremly Lin with the biggest shot of the night after schved hit his 3.

James Harden is on the cusp of being on Rudy Gays level, I mean Dwayne Wade in his prime.

Asik's been setting some mean screens of late. Minnesota announcers couldn't stop talking about what a big body he has.

knickstorm 12-26-2012 10:10 PM

haha wow all those ball danced around the rim before going in too

Thanks for thinking of us, Clutch.

Great forth quarter. Thanks for this and other videos. This is the only way I see the Rockets these days.

Alex L. 12-26-2012 10:12 PM

Awesome! It's like Merry Christmas all over again :)
