Was James Harden taking part in a game of H-O-R-S-E here?!

Actually, no. Prior to shooting these free throws at the beginning of the third quarter during the Rockets/Kings game last night, Harden was fouled by Ben McLemore and rolled his left ankle. But rather than exiting the game immediately, Harden chose to shoot his free throws. And amazingly, he nailed both of them, despite the fact that he was forced to shoot them on one leg to help avoid putting any pressure on his left ankle.

Watch him sink both free throws in the clip above. Maybe Dwight Howard should give this a try. It looks like it's pretty effective.
