James Harden and the Rockets suffered a surprising 116-108 home loss to the Utah Jazz last night in game two of the Western conference semi-finals last night
Before the game, a Jazz fan who had infiltrated the arena taunted Harden as "the worst flopper in the NBA."
Harden reacted by smacking the phone out of his hand.

As you can see, the Houston police sided with Harden and warned the guy about getting too close.
But the Jazz jersey-wearing heckler wouldn't listen and tried Harden again at half-time.
