Rockets’ James Harden sneaks into Bulls’ huddle, gets butt-slap from Jim Boylen

James Harden, Jim Boylen, Rockets, Bulls

It’s a good day for many Houston Rockets fans whenever their favorite team manages to cruise to victory. James Harden will let these same fans know that it’s a good day if he jokes around with the opposing team’s players and coaches, such as Jim Boylen of the Chicago Bulls.

The Rockets convincingly won over the Bulls, 117-94 on the back of a near-triple-double from James Harden. He felt so good playing that he even got into the Bulls’ huddle during an interruption of play. NBA on ESPN immediately took note of the hilarious moment and shared it to their fans.

The way Harden stood there while Jim Boylen was doing everything he can to rally the troops in the fourth quarter was nothing short of hilarious. Even Boylen let out a small smile as he acknowledged the small prank Harden did on his team.

On a more serious note, it’s encouraging news for Rockets fans that their team performed this well. Harden finished the night with 42 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. Russell Westbrook was a terrific supporting act for the Beard, notching 26 points, seven rebounds, and two assists himself.

The New Orleans Pelicans will be the Rockets’ next opponents, and the team will be hoping that he doesn’t have another strong game and pull that off on them as well.
