Houston Rockets star James Harden disrespected Los Angeles Clippers forward Wesley Johnson late in the first quarter of Wednesday's game at the Staples Center. 

With under 1:25 remaining in the period, Harden and Johnson met at the top of the key, where The Beard hit a crossover in an effort to create space.

Johnson either lost his balance, tripped or offered a ridiculous attempt at drawing an offensive foul, and his rear landed on the court. 

Harden showed no mercy, staring at his downed opponent for what felt like an eternity before draining the three-pointer. 

Give it to the MVP candidate for turning a standard jumper into one of the top highlights of the season.
