NBA fans watching Saturday night’s game between the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets must have been wondering what James Harden was doing in the third quarter.
With less than 2 minutes left in the quarter, Harden was ready to return to the game after taking a breather. However, he forgot to sign in before entering the game, leaving the 76ers with four men on the floor. While on the bench, he tried to sneak onto the court in the middle of a play.

He was hit with the ball and received a technical foul for the odd play.
Philadelphia was down 99-84 at the time, but a strong fourth quarter helped the 76ers get back in the game and ultimately pull out the win, 126-119.
«Small miscommunication, we got the W,» Harden tweeted after the game.
