VIDEO: James Harden buries the game winner over the Spurs

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

James Harden won Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday, and this is probably what sealed it for him. Down one to San Antonio, Harden took his Rockets home in a big win over the Spurs.

Houston needed the win to keep pace with the Warriors for the sixth seed in the West. The win also moved Houston three games ahead of the Lakers for the eighth seed. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot (combined wins and/or losses) is seven over Utah and eight over Dallas.

Pretty impressive considering it didn't even look like he was trying to make the shot, just draw contact.

Harden has been a monster for the Rockets this year, and continues to prove he's the superstar they've been searching for.
