What Had Happened Was: 5/12/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
Happy trails to the conversation about whether Houston Rockets guard James Harden is the NBA’s MVP this season.
Oh, best believe that debate is dead and gone. Harden played only 36 minutes, fouled out and contributed just 10 points to the Rockets’ bottom line in the team’s 114-75 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night.
Did I mention that this was an elimination game … and the Spurs were playing without their own MVP candidate, Kawhi Leonard? Oh.
Got answers? Cause it doesn't look like James Harden and Mike D'Antoni do pic.twitter.com/deHUsOe96w

James Harden's big game reputation will be under fire. Fouled out, 10 points, 3 boards, 7 dimes, 2-of-11 FG 2-of-9 3P 4-of-6 FT & a -28.

This is my 42nd year at the Chronicle. This might be the worst playoff performance by a Houston team in the city's history.
