James Harden put on a clinic during the Rockets' Game 1 win over the Timberwolves on Sunday. The MVP favorite scored 44 points in the win. He also broke out a unguardable step-back move on Andrew Wiggins that was a clear travel.

With that move not being called, Joel Embiid seemed to have found inspiration for his own game. Ahead of Monday's Game 2 against the Heat, Embiid - who was ruled out for the game with his facial fracture - was jokingly practicing Harden's mean step-back.

Perfection.

Embiid has been known to pick up post moves and make shooting adjustments just by watching YouTube videos, so it's only a matter of time before Embiid unleashes that move on his NBA competition.

We'll have to wait and see if refs actually call it a travel next time.
