Early in the third quarter of Game 1 between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant showed off his defense against James Harden.
Harden made a nice move to get into the paint and appeared to have a shot. Durant denied him with a gorgeous rejection.
Game 1 has been a back-and-forth battle between these powerhouses so far. Harden has been extremely frustrated by non-calls on contested three-point shots. This rejection won’t improve his mood much.
