Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

The Philadelphia 76ers beat the Houston Rockets 107-100 last night and oh, who cares? Do yourself a favor: skip to the :09 mark of this video and watch in slow motion how James Harden crosses up Jrue Holiday. Looks pretty bad, right? Now go back to the beginning and watch in real time as James Harden crosses up Jrue Holiday so badly and so completely that Holiday looks anchored to the court.

The slow motion replay sort of explains the magic, making it a little less pretty looking—you can see a near double dribble and a moment of "holy shit it worked" before Harden collects the ball—but it's worth it just to put in context (and appreciate) how James Harden turned Jrue Holiday into a tree with a behind the back/between the legs crossover while sprinting to the basket for two of his 29 points.
