That has to be the worst ever effort right?

Because I have dominated the TV so much this post season, I gave my wife a reprieve from basketball last night because I was so sure Houston would blow out the Kawai-less Spurs. When I finally checked the score in the 4th quarter I was slack jawed.

While I don’t think this will haunt the franchise as other people have indicated, I am still absolutely perplexed how Harden could lay such an egg. When Kobe and LeBron had similar no-show performances in the playoffs, it was for a very specific reason, but with Harden, this seems like part of a pattern that happens to him in the post-season.
