We showed you over the summer James Harden was working on a new move, a one-legged step-back three.

Monday night, in the Rockets first preseason game of the season, Harden broke it out — and Russell Westbrook loved it.

We’ll see how often Harden goes to this during the season, that “old” stepback move worked pretty well for him last season when he scored the most points per game of anyone since Jordan.

How good the Rockets will be is up for debate, but they will be entertaining.
