James Harden’s awful Game 6 brought out all the reactions
The Houston Rockets entered Game 6 against the San Antonio Spurs last week as clear favorites to come away with a win on their home floor and extend the series. And they lost by 39 points.
While James Harden certainly wasn’t the only one at fault on the night, the Rockets really could’ve used a much better effort from the NBA MVP candidate. It was absolutely awful. Harden scored just 10 points on 2-of-11 shooting from the field, had six turnovers, and fouled out.
Stephen A. Smith (obviously) had a lot to say about that. During Smith’s rant on SportsCenter, he said that five Hall of Famers had texted him that Harden “quit”:
(You can see much more of Smith’s rant here, which includes him suggesting that Harden “was drugged.”)
Jalen Rose also went off about Harden:
“I can’t recall a more uninspired, lackluster performance by one of the elite players in the game. You’re at home, no Tony Parker, no Kawhi Leonard, you’re facing elimination, and you get beat by 39 points?! Have 10 points, six turnovers, and foul out?! Again, James Harden deserved all of the credit and rightfully so for how he played during the regular season, but a lot of these turnovers and plays you see are just careless.”
And Chauncey Billups agreed:

The Washington Capitals were the favorite to win the Stanley Cup, and once again disappointed. After their second-round loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Maryland native Scott Van Pelt opened SportsCenter with a little rant on the Caps:

“Game 6 (of Celtics-Wizards) Friday night at DC, and the winner of this series of course… will get trounced by the Cavaliers.”
