Rockets beat Clippers 105-92 for 14th straight

Rockets beat Clippers 105-92 for 14th straight

James Harden completely embarrassed Wesley Johnson with a 3-pointer during Wednesday's Clippers-Rockets game, and the internet loved it. During the second quarter of the Rockets-Clippers matchup, Harden crossed over Johnson causing him to fall over.

Yes, Marcus Smart saw James Harden drop Wesley Johnson.

Harden assassinating Johnson's ankles as set to the the music from Titanic? In the latter category: James Harden. Anthony Davis finished with 26 points and 15 rebounds, which feels like an off night given his play lately, but he came up with a clutch rebound and two free throws in the final seconds to help seal the win.

Meanwhile, the door in Houston's locker room that led to the corridor used by several Rockets to enter the Clippers room after their previous meeting was covered with yellow tape on Wednesday. There are some great moves by MVP. Then he gets that stepback, one of his patented moves, the crowd went insane.

How far Houston goes this postseason is an unknown (although Harden seems to think there's something special brewing with this crew). The Arizona State product is averaging more than 31 points per game and just less than nine assists per game.

"I was just trying to figure out what he was doing", Harden said. The play basically broke the spirit of the Clippers-and set off NBA Twitter. Harden, the favorite for the N.B.A.'s Most Valuable Player Award, then rubbed the Clippers' faces in the misfortune by taking his time in setting up the 3-point shot as his teammates went berserk on the sideline. "And James Harden must be brought up on charges for snatching this man's soul", ESPN's Jemele Hill tweeted.

It's a tremendous thing to see millionaire National Basketball Association stars give back to their old downtrodden communities.

Either way, Harden's antics will be hard to top in the race for best highlight of the season. I know it's immature, but I just can't get enough of this stuff.

I am going to eliminate Boston and Toronto in one fell swoop for one reason - LeBron James.

After Houston's January 20 win over Golden State, Rockets center Clint Capela said: "We are better than them".
