The Houston Rockets are now down 2 games to none to the #1 seed Golden State Warriors after two very close losses that they seemingly couldn’t afford to lose. James Harden had the ball with his team down 99-98 in the closing seconds, but once he was double-teamed by Klay Thompson and Steph Curry; Harden lost the ball and the game was over.
James Harden scored 38 points in the loss, but it was the last 2 he didn’t score that may haunt him all off-season. Harden and the rest of the Rockets somberly walked off the court toward the locker-room and as Harden walked under this curtain walk-through he reached up and knocked it over in frustration. The Rockets have let two golden opportunities, pardon the pun, slip through their fingers and unlike their previous series against the Clippers, this time it may be too much to overcome. Here is the video of James knocking over the curtain walk-through, a replay of the final play, and a nice shot of Oracle Arena, better known as “ROAR”ACLE, as the Golden State fans joyfully exit with a huge advantage in the Western Conference Finals.
