James Harden hits step-back game winner to beat Suns (VIDEO)

P.J.Tucker is a good defender and James Harden had him on skates.

That’s how good Harden is and why his sweet step-back jumper was the game winner as the Rockets beat the Suns Friday night, 113-111. Yes, Harden played to his tendencies on that shot, but I’m not sure how you defend that.

Harden finished the night with 33 points and 10 assists. I don’t care if Klay Thompson makes the All-Star team and Steve Kerr is the coach, Harden should be the starter next to Stephen Curry. Harden has earned it.
