James Harden knocks over hand sanitizer; bashes the team for a disastrous game
The NBA’s scoring champion this season knocked over a hand sanitizer dispenser as he made his way to the locker room post the loss to Thunder.
Walking with a grimace on his face, the Rockets star in frustration knocked over the hand sanitizer, clearly showing how this defeat had angered him.
James Harden and his Rockets will feel the momentum shifting with the Thunder, coming back from a 15 point deficit in the third quarter to tie the series. The Rockets are missing the services of all-star guard Russell Westbrook and will hope that he takes the court in the decisive game 5 on Wednesday. The Rockets’ small-ball doesn’t look efficient without the former OKC star.

The superstar said the following after the loss:
“Teams are going to make runs, but it’s the way they made their runs. We weren’t getting our shots offensively, and defensively, we weren’t sticking to our principles. So it was a disaster on both ends.”
Chris Paul and co. have exposed Rockets’ small-ball strategy, but a lot of it also has to do with the absence of Russell Westbrook. The former OKC man is currently nursing a quad injury and is uncertain of when he would be able to return to the court. Rockets fans would be hoping he can make an appearance in Game 5, as only his presence can now overturn this situation for them.
