In what is the sequel game from Locker Room-Gate between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers (the first game since Trevor Ariza, Gerald Green, Clint Capela, James Harden and Chris Paul stormed the hidden tunnel at STAPLES Center to confront the Clippers), it has been very anti-climatic thus far. The Rockets are demolishing the Clips right now.
If you already turned your TV off, the play that will stand tall for the night is this savage play by James Harden, who completely embarrassed Wesley Johnson on a step-back triple.
As you can see from the replay, Johnson slipped and fell on the crossover from The Beard, who took his time, stared Wes down and then calmly took the shot from beyond the arc and drained it.
We’ve watched it 15 times already. It’s completely disrespectful. Wesley may never live this down for the rest of his career in the NBA.
Rest in peace Wesley Johnson.
