James Harden Drops 45 As Houston Rockets Prevent Series Sweep


Monday night, the Houston Rockets showed once again why you can’t out them out when they’re down. The Rockets were facing a Game 4 elimination in the Western Conference Finals. The team came out aggressive, taking a commanding lead, scoring 45 points in the first quarter.

James Harden dropped a career-high 45 points in a 128-115 win.

It should also be noted, quite a few were upset that “The Beard” attended a Drake concert Sunday night, following that 35-point-beat down. But clearly, a little Drake in your life can be a good thing. Lil B who?

Check out some of the Game 4 highlights:

Dwight Howard hits Warriors center Andrew Bogut across the face. It’s called a Flagrant one.

Howard has been beasting all series for the Rockets, and last night was no exception. DH had a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Stephen Curry was injured in a scary fall. He was down for several minutes and needed help leaving the court.

He missed about 12 minutes of play, after running through concussion testing. He ended the night with 23 points. His back court mate, Klay Thompson scored the Warriors team-high 24 points.

Warriors power forward Draymond Green scored 21 points before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

Side note, Lil B will be in attendance Wednesday night at Oracle arena in Oakland. If Harden goes off again, is the curse of Lil B broken?
