Defense looks optional in this exhibition as James Harden throws down a breakaway dunk.
Team USA is taking on the Dominican Republic in an exhibition game leading up to the FIBA World Cup and defense appears to be optional. James Harden snuck behind the entire Dominican Republic defense for a long outlet pass. Easy snatch, easy dunk, easy bucket:
It's also worth noting that three of the four Team USA players available to take the inbound pass are ahead of the Dominican Republic, catching them completely flat-footed.
