After dropping 38 points in the Rockets’ win over the Bucks in Houston on Wednesday night, James Harden took the game ball, autographed it and walked over to a woman sitting courtside celebrating her 100th birthday. He handed her the ball as he sat down next to her. They chatted for a few moments and smiled for a photo.

During a postgame interview, Harden had this to say about his older fan.
"Today is her 100th birthday. It’s a blessing. She’s excited. She’s sitting on the court. She’s just smiling over there. I had to go give her the game ball and go tell her how blessed she is and how blessed I am for meeting her.”
Solid move by the bearded one, not only is he averaging nearly a triple-double, but he’s led Houston to the third-best record in the NBA.
