James Harden said he wasn’t embarrassed. Frustrated was the word he used. He should be embarrassed, as should the rest of the Houston Rockets. Final score: Phoenix 124, Houston 115.
The Rockets’ chances of reaching the postseason are virtually gone. Portland and Memphis clinched playoff berths Thursday night as a result of Houston’s loss. For laughs, the Rockets remain in contention for a postseason berth with three games remaining in the regular season.
