#6) Jan. 23, 2015: James Harden‘s Swisheroo At The Buzzer
James Harden sinks clutch shots all of the time but rarely are they ever at the buzzer.

He finished with 33 points, 10 assists, six rebounds while shooting 14-of-17 from the charity stripe.

That’s all that matters!
The Beard is just getting started as he hasn’t even reached the prime of his career so I’m sure there will be many more shots that will replace this one but one things for sure, this was DAMN good one to start out!
