WATCH: Eric Bledsoe sends James Harden back with emphatic block

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Houston Rockets star James Harden tried to drive on Eric Bledsoe for a layup. The Milwaukee Bucks guard had other ideas.

Bledsoe rejected Harden’s shot in absolutely emphatic fashion. It really must be seen to be believed.

Wow. He really owes that ball an apology for hitting it so hard.

That was so impressive, it was even worth putting up with the Players Only broadcast — at least for 11 seconds.

Harden is usually pretty good at finishing when he gets to the rim. He’s also very good at drawing fouls. All of that makes Bledsoe’s play even more impressive.
