How many times have we written about James Harden’s awful, atrocious, very bad, no-good defense?

So, in (repeated) fairness, here’s Harden playing awesome defense against the Jazz’s 3-on-1 fastbreak last night.

Harden convinces Gordon Hayward to pass, forces Trey Burke to pass and then blocks Chris Johnson’s shot.

For good measure, Harden pushes the ball the other direction and finds Trevor Ariza for a 3-pointer.
