Houston Rockets guard James Harden gifted his Game 4 shoes to Meng-Han Yang, a fan who traveled over 7,100 miles from Taiwan to watch the team's 119-100 road victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center on Monday night.

The NBA highlighted Harden tossing the memorabilia to the 23-year-old college student:

Here's a look at a couple pictures from the postgame moment:

Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle spoke with Yang, who will travel to the Toyota Center in Houston as the Rockets attempt to close out the first-round playoff series Wednesday.

"This is my first trip to the United States, and this is a good reason to come," Yang said. "It will be exciting."

Harden, the likely 2017-18 NBA MVP, has averaged 30.3 points, 6.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 2.5 steals through the first four games of the series against the Wolves.
