Harden's great season for Rockets ends in embarrassing loss

Then Rockets general manager Daryl Morey and D'Antoni briefly spoke with Harden and made a decision to "give him some space".

Although the MVP award is based on regular-season production, Harden's shameful performance in Game 6 demonstrates that his true value is highly overrated. The pre-game announcement that they were sitting Leonard had many already making travel arrangements for Game 7 in San Antonio.

Stop it. No way.

James Harden would foul out, shooting 2 for 11 from the field, with no two-point field goals, and fewer points (10) than Spurs backup point guard Dejounte Murray (11).

"Everybody contributed. It was a real team effort with (32) assists and just (seven) turnovers". Lose Game 1 by 27?

"I don't know if it's true or not, but it's nearly like mentally it just zapped us", he said. "[He got] to the rim, did a really good job". If he's not scoring 30+ points or his team is trying to light a wet fuse on the three ball, there's nothing else he or they have philosophically that they can turn to. Though the series between the two teams was not as lopsided as many depict, the matchup between Hakeem and The Admiral will forever be a defining moment in Robinson's career.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suggested as much when he announced in full Popovichian form that Leonard would not play hours before Game 6.

"Honestly, he said he (didn't) know what to say", Harden said.

However, in the aftermath of yet another postseason loss to Popovich and the Spurs, Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni had cause to feel abjectly disheartened. Best of luck next round, and continue to be great. "We need to get better defensively". Harden did not struggle, for to struggle one has to take shots. It was the Aldridge that Spurs fans had been calling for all series, and his 34 point, 12 rebound performance effectively erased his 4 point no-show in game 1. Check out the score and highlights from last night's action and stay tuned for more from the NBA Playoffs coming soon! This whole regular season and the first ten games of the postseason, until late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of this series, was a seven-month force feeding for the Harden haters that maybe, just MAYBE, he had matured and was ready to embed himself among the pantheon of great National Basketball Association players. He'll watch the tape. Harden, in the end, could never catch his breath. That needs to continue in the conference finals because, as Green said, "We'll need it".

"It falls on my shoulders".

Everything worked. In a a postseason where almost every game has been a blow out, the Spurs blew out the Rockets so bad that the other blowouts looked close. We should have a formal update from the team on either Friday or Saturday.
