James Harden SMOKED in the Face by a Giannis’ Pass
Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden had a showdown in Houston on Wednesday. Both players had monster stat lines. Giannis had his second-career 20-20 game with 27 points and 21 rebounds. Harden finished the game with 42 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. Both had MVP-like stat lines. But only one player received a ball to the face, and that was Harden. Giannis whipped a pass and the MVP caught it with his face. You immediately go to The Hangover and want to yell out ‘IN THE FAACEEEEEEEEE.’ It’s a hilarious clip especially from a fan at the game.

My favorite part of this whole thing was my dad watched in real time. My dad is the classic old guy when it comes to the NBA. He doesn’t want it and doesn’t like it. Apparently, he turned that on after the Marquette when he’s on the phone with me. All of the sudden, he starts laughing out of nowhere and explains that Harden got hit in the face. This stuff happening is always funny, but it’s funnier when it’s a premier athlete.
