For the second night in a row we had a Game 7 in the NBA playoffs come down to the final seconds, as the Houston Rockets edged the Oklahoma City Thunder, 104-102, in a frantic finish Wednesday night that was sealed with an unreal defensive play be James Harden of all people.
Then moments after the game Harden perfectly summed up his play on the offensive end with a curse word that wasn’t bleeped out during his live postgame interview on ESPN.
Harden made the play of the night when he blocked Lu Dort’s (who had 30 points) 3-point attempt in a one-point game with four seconds left:
Offensively, Harden was terrible in Game 7. He finished with 17 points on 4-of-15 shooting and was a dreadful 1-of-9 from 3-point land.

Gotta love that honesty.
The Rockets now move on to play LeBron James and the Lakers with Game 1 on Friday night.
