James Harden scored 35 points (12-of-13 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs) with six boards, six assists and seven turnovers on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Rockets from elimination.
The Scoop: Trevor Ariza's offense dried up vs. Golden State, the Rockets couldn't get Dwight Howard consistent touches around the basket, and the offensive burden proved to be too much for Harden to shoulder alone. He opened tonight's game 6-of-8 from the field, with his teammates a combined 0-of-15, resulting in a huge early deficit that Houston simply couldn't overcome. It will be an offseason of soul-searching for the Rockets.
