Video: Rockets guard James Harden converts on a no-look scoop plus a foul
Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden is a man of a million moves. He pulled off, what is to our estimate his 438,594th maneuver Saturday night, when he made an unbelievable no-look basket that came with a foul during the first quarter of their road game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Have a look at that play below:

With the shot clock winding down, Harden took matters into his own hands, using a smart head fake to shake Cavaliers forward Jae Crowder off before attacking the basket. Seeing LeBron James was about to meet him at the rim, Harden turned his back, catching a foul from Crowder in the process, before seeing his no-look attempt go in.
Harden is one of the best offensive players in the game today. He could easily break down any type of defense thrown at him, as he is an extremely gifted ball-handler and a lethal perimeter shooter. But what makes James Harden even more dangerous is his ability to spot open teammates. On top of those, his playing style is seemingly tailored for Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni’s free-flowing system.
Harden entered the Cavaliers game averaging 31.5 points, 9.1 assists per game, and 5.0 rebounds. He is also shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from beyond the arc. It was not that long ago when he had a historic performance in a win at home against Orlando last Tuesday, when he became the first player in NBA history to record a 60-point triple-double (60 points, 11 assists, 10rebounds).
