Rockets’ Harden slams officials after second straight 50-point game
“(Expletive) calls,” Harden told reporters when asked about his frustration. “I’m tired of hearing ‘I made a mistake,’ or ‘I didn’t see it’.
“That’s frustrating when you hear it as a player. I know we all make mistakes, but it’s just frustrating.”
Harden’s tough finish to the night included just two points, two turnovers and three fouls in the final 2:20.
Despite that, Harden became the last player since Kobe Bryant in 2007 to register consecutive 50-point outings.
He also scored 51 in a defeat against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.
