James Harden is not a Jedi, but it appears one of the members of the Utah Jazz might be.
That's really the only possible explanation for Harden throwing the ball just randomly to no one here. Well, there are other possible explanations but they're all really insulting.
At least James Harden's teammates seemed to have fun with it:

UPDATE: We found the culprit. Curse you Lance Stephenson!
UPDATE 2: Or maybe the Jazz did have some special powers at work here.
