Some non-hoopers joined the action as well, including Scott and Meek Mill. Scott's athletic prowess was on hand for the second-straight night, canning a triple over Mill.

The contest stayed close throughout, coming down to a one-possession game inside the final minute. With the game on the line, Harden dished it to Rockets teammate Gerald Green, who knocked down a corner three to seal the win over Team DeRozan. 

The 3TheHardenWay foundation aims to bridge "economic and educational gaps in the Houston Metropolitan Area by providing academic financial support to high achieving students." All proceeds from the JH-Town Weekend went to the charity.
