Resting your star is the latest trend in the NBA, but the Rockets seem unclear on the concept — you don’t do it in a playoff elimination game, right?
James Harden had 10 points — making only two shots — in Houston’s biggest game of the season, and now the Rockets are eliminated and the Spurs go on to meet the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
The Rockets, at home, lost Game 6 114-75, a result that would have registered “Blushing Maiden” on the carnival ring the bell hammer game. Houston fans were not pleased.
How did Harden handle the defeat? Quite well, it seems. That night he was seen clubbing as fans shouted “MVP!” Wow.

TMZ Sports obtained footage of Harden at Set in Houston where he turned up in the VIP section while Travis Scott performed.
Kylie Jenner was in the building along with some Houston Texans players.
Multiple witnesses say Harden went to Dreams strip club later on in the night — and why not? It’s not like he has to work today.
