Rockets struggling 0-2 in first round of NBA playoffs

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

The Houston Rockets, despite rocking a 33-8 record at home during the regular season, are now 0-2 in the first round of NBA playoffs. James Harden, usually cool and untouchable, has been flopping big time. He even lost it against reporters after a 112-105 Game 2 loss on Wednesday to the Portland Trail Blazers, answering questions by repeatedly saying, “It’s basketball.” Then, when a reporter asked “if he had ever seen a player not play well before”, the argument got heated, with Harden demanding the reporter’s name and calling him a “weirdo”. You can bet he’ll be looking to even the score on Friday’s Game 3!
