James Harden Plays Horrible Defense, Watches as DeMar DeRozan Drives By

Thomas DuffyFeatured ColumnistMarch 7, 2016

Another day, another defensive gaffe from James Harden.

On Sunday, the Houston Rockets' star shooting guard stood by as Toronto Raptors All-Star DeMar DeRozan drove past him.

Harden was covering Patrick Patterson in the corner, but he blatantly failed to help. He just kept his hands on his knees.

Despite the Beard's blunder, Houston took the road win, 113-107.
