James Harden and Carmelo Anthony teamed up in another Chris Brickley video in their first recorded pickup game without Chris Paul.

The two new teammates worked on their chemistry with Brickley, and his company Black Ops Basketball, in a game featuring NBA players Serge Ibaka, Tim Hardaway Jr., Kelly Oubre Jr., Courtney Lee, JaVale McGee, and Enes Kanter.

While Harden and Anthony hooked up for only one bucket, both were great on the same court in the one-minute compilation. Harden had some insane passes, and Melo showed off the pull-up and post work.

If you recall, this isn’t the first time that they have teamed up together. In another Brickley video this summer, Harden, Paul, and Anthony teamed up together in a game that featured a lot more passing to one another.

I’m not saying that you should start going crazy now, but it’s fun to watch these star-studded, defense-less pickup games while waiting for the season to start. Also, it’s great to see that Harden and Melo have been putting in work this offseason and not waiting for training camp to start.
