All season long the Houston Rockets have been saying that wins, not numbers, are what matters most in choosing the NBA’s Most Valuable Player. That’s why James Harden should be MVP and not Russell Westbrook, they said. While Westbrook may have broken a 55-year-old record, Harden won more games.

Unfortunately for the Rockets, their MVP could not win the game that mattered most. The Spurs eliminated the Rockets from the playoffs with a 114-75 blowout win in Game 6 on Thursday night.

That was not how things were supposed to go. The Spurs’ best player, Kawhi Leonard, was sitting out with a sprained ankle. The Rockets were at home. James Harden was supposed to use his MVP voodoo to send the series back to San Antonio for Game 7. Instead, the MVP candidate scored just 10 points on 2-for-11 shooting, with seven assists and six turnovers. Then he fouled out with three and a half minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Basically, it was the worst playoff performance of Harden’s career. It’s almost as if Manu got in his head.

To his credit, after the game Harden stood up and took responsibility for the loss.

“You’ve got to take it for what it is,” Harden said. “Everything falls on my shoulders. I take responsibility for it, both ends of the floor. You know, it’s tough, especially the way we lost at home for Game 6. But it happened. Now we move forward.”

However, his noble speech did not keep the haters at bay. Twitter had a field day with Harden’s terrible performance.
