NOT THE BEST TRIP BACK HOME. James Harden’s return to Oklahoma City wasn’t very fun, as the Rockets fell to the Thunder 120-98 at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Despite spending the early parts of this season proving why he was worth his new max contract, his 17 points on 3-16 shooting last night won’t be going in his 2012-13 highlight reel. To add insult to his poor performance, The Beard was blocked seven times (!) by his ex-mates.
