Instead, Harden dropped an absolute stinker as the Houston Rockets got waxed 114-75 by a severely shorthanded opponent in Game 6. The Beard shot 2-of-11 from the field, recorded six turnovers, and fouled out in 37 lethargic minutes as San Antonio moved on to the Western Conference finals.
At times, Harden didn't look interested - especially in the first half, when he tried only two shots. This lowlight reel says it all.
Of course, no loss is complete in the social media age without a thorough roasting on Twitter. Harden got raked over the coals for his no-show.
