James Harden hits ridiculous 80-foot shot after the buzzer
Tuesday May 26th, 2015

Houston guard James Harden hit an 80-foot heave as time expired at the end of the first half in Monday's Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, but the shot was waved off when it was determined the ball left his hands after time had expired. 

Had the shot counted it would have given the Rockets 72 first-half points and put the team up by 13 points at the half.

The Rockets didn't need much insurance though, riding 57% shooting in a game that featured a playoff-record 37 three pointers. 

Houston won 128–115 to stave off elimination and cut Golden State's series lead to 3–1.
