WATCH: James Harden Flops, Rubs Beard on Trevor Ariza

On Wednesday night, James Harden‘s heroics propelled the Houston Rockets over the Washington Wizards 113-112. The guard hit a free throw with four seconds left in regulation before converting a layup with 0.7 seconds to send the Rockets into the All-Star Break on a seven-game winning streak.

To get to the charity stripe with just seconds left on the clock, Harden appeared to get fouled by Trevor Ariza. Yet, video replay clearly shows Harden flopped, which allowed him to get to the free throw line and bring his team within just one-point of the lead.

Following the game, Harden was seen talking to Ariza before rubbing his beard into Ariza’s chest. It was just simply weird.
