James Harden has some pretty incredible range. The Houston Rockets star showed that off in a big way on Thursday night against the Miami Heat.
Harden pulled up from just inside of midcourt, pretty close to Houston’s logo. The shot was as good as gold.
"HARDEN FROM THE PARKING LOT!" #Rockets

For years, defenders could hang out close to the three-point line and let the ball handler come to them. But when guys like Harden have the ball, that’s clearly not an option anymore. When you give them that room, they’ll make you pay.
It’s a new NBA.
