Rockets star James Harden “murdered” a man on court Thursday and fans went online to share hilarious (over)reactions.
At one point, the Clippers’ Wesley Johnson had to try to guard Harden when Harden pulled a crossover move so vicious that Johnson literally was swept off his feet, falling to the ground.
Harden then doused Johnson’s wounds with salt, staring him down for about three seconds before sinking a three-pointer.
Twitter users didn’t hesitate to bring their reactions to the meme-worthy play online.

Those who witnessed the game also were quick to update Johnson’s Wikipedia page.
Suffice to say, plays like that one helped the Rockets beat the Clippers 105-92, extending their winning streak to 14. Houston is 47-13 so far this season and host the Boston Celtics on Saturday night.

Hey guys, Wesley Johnson can still be healed with #wakanda technology after that brutal attach by #JamesHarden, aka #AnkleMonger. He doesn't have to die just yet! I heard @jemelehill has some contacts over there that can help! #ThursdayThoughts
