Man City-Liverpool? No, the most memorable match of the week took place in the NBA: “The Flamethrower!”

The top match between Manchester City and Liverpool produced a thriller format, but the most memorable match of the week was not. That honor was to have been poached by the NBA clash between Golden State and Houston.

The Warriors and Rockets are generally expected to be in the finals of the Western Conference sometime in april. Last year were both teams facing each other in the semi-final battle, and then the duel was only decided in a decisive seventh contest. Thus there is a rivalry and that was Thursday night once again.

Golden State led almost the entire race, and was at a certain point in the third quarter and even 20 points for Houston. James Harden, however, had (again) a topavond. He had the past four games is already more than 40 points scored, and did so now again. He put the plates on the end of the regular playing time equal at 119-119, so there is extensions played had to be.

Therein it went up and down. In the last minute made Klay Thompson with a layup 132-130. Harden hit the second of two free throws before Stephen Curry, there are two points bijdeed for the Warriors: 134-132. He did, however, after a glaring “missed call” from the referee, who did not see that Kevin Durant outside the lines when he has the ball in possession loved.

Harden didn’t let his heart out and got the ball with just more than five seconds on the clock. He dodged Thompson with a little help from PJ Tucker and blasted his tenth three pointer within the outstretched arms of Draymond Green: good for 45 points, an impressive fifth triple-double of the season (he also had 10 rebounds and 15 assists) and a 134-135 victory.

On Twitter was massively responded to the performance of ‘The Beard’:
