Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said he will rethink whether James Harden needs more rest during the regular season after the All-Star’s poor performance at the end of Houston’s Western Conference semifinals series.

D’Antoni, describing himself as “shell-shocked” the day after Houston’s season ended with a 39-point home loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6, acknowledged after Friday’s exit interviews that fatigue could have factored into Harden’s poor finish. Harden was held to 10 points on 2-of-11 shooting and committed 6 turnovers in the 114-75 loss Thursday night. He had 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting and 6 turnovers in the second half and overtime of a 110-107 loss in Game 5, going scoreless with three turnovers in the overtime period.
