This week we saw the Houston Rockets win in a five game series against the UtahJazz, move to the second round of post-season playoffs.
CBS Sports.com reported, "James Harden is arguably the NBA MVP for the second straight season, but he struggled drastically from the field during this series. He missed his first 15 shots and went 3-of-20 overall and the Rockets were still able to win Game 3. In Game 5, he started out 1-for-11 from the field and finished 10-for-26 for the game and Houston still finished off Utah.
For the series, Harden converted on a less than spectacular 36.7 percent of his field-goal attempts. If you would have said before the series started that Harden would struggle this much from the field, I think everybody would have pegged the Jazz as the winners of this series," DJ Siddiqi, CBS Sports.com

It'll be a bit more commercial with some ‘X’ vibes. I'll probably have another dance, too. It's funny, like, I'm not really the dancing guy and one of my biggest songs has a dance to it.”
