The Houston Rockets topped the New York Knicks, 114-110, at Madison Square Garden tonight behind an insane 61-point performance from MVP frontrunner James Harden.

Harden's performance isn't what most people are talking about regarding the game, though.

P.J. Tucker made arguably the weirdest mistake of the NBA's season.

The Rockets' veteran forward appeared to forget how to play basketball for a couple of seconds, driving his teammate, Eric Gordon, insane.

Check this out:

What just happened there? The Rockets' head coach, Mike D'Antoni, said after the game that Tucker wasn't sure if Gordon had inbounded the ball or not. Tucker apparently thought that Gordon might have been giving him the ball to inbound it, but he wasn't entirely sure. So, he just stood there and didn't touch the ball, resulting in a turnover.

It wasn't a great night for Tucker as a whole, as he scored just three points while grabbing nine rebounds.

The Rockets got the win, though, improving to 27-20 on the season, while the Knicks dropped to 10-36.

Houston has a day off on Thursday before hosting the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. Tipoff for that game is set for 8 p.m. E.T. It will be televised on ESPN.
