Still, the thing that fans will remember about this game was the triple that Harden canned with one second remaining in overtime to seal the win.
On the following possession, Harden knocked in the game-winning three from deep despite being surrounded by Golden State defenders.
If you have yet to see the footage, here's the clips of Durant clearly out of bounds, and the ball at that point should have went to the Rockets.
Not that Durant needed official confirmation to know he was out-of-bounds.
After winning the MVP past year, Harden is making a pretty strong case for a second one. He released the ball with at least four hands in his face for the game-winner, a shot that Golden State coach Steve Kerr described as "impossible" after the game. Not to mention Harden's walk-off 3-pointer to win the game.
Harden stuffed the stat sheet in general, adding 15 assists and 10 rebounds along with his prolific scoring output.
"For the most part, I feel like we made him work".
The Rockets climbed their way back from a 20-point deficit at the Warriors' Oracle Arena.
"It's tough, man. It's tough to stop you from just shooting 3s, because there's just so much space out there", said Durant. "[There were] slow rotations or just a little laziness with that lead".
The Warriors (25-14) have lost three in a row at home, having also been beaten by the Lakers and Trail Blazers. "It's not the end of the world".
