In a game where Harden reached another milestone and ended up on the winning side, he also had a few forgettable moments, Most notable was when he passed the ball to Russell Westbrook. It looked like a normal pass except that Westbrook was not in the game.
Harden accidentally passed the ball to Westbrook who was standing outside the court.
Giannis only wishes he had James Harden’s skills so he could do things like pass the ball to someone not even in the game pic.twitter.com/VeLkM24KMH

James Harden and Russell Westbrook: a partnership working well for Houston Rockets
When Westbrook made a sensational switch to the Rockets last summer, many started thinking whether he would get along with James Harden as a fellow guard. After a slow start, the duo have started to lead the Rockets together.
While it was Harden that was dominating at the start of the season, Westbrook’s numbers have overshadowed that of Harden’s in recent times.
Russell Westbrook and James Harden each averaged 30 points and 5 assists in February.
They are the first pair of teammates in NBA history to each average 30 points and 5 assists in a calendar month (min. 5 games).
