James Harden, who was fantastic during the regular season, was absolutely brutal last night in the Rockets stunning Game 6 blowout loss to the Kawhi-less Spurs.
Harden finished with just 10 points on 2 for 11 shooting and turned it over six times. After the game, he spoke on the unceremonious elimination.
"Everything falls on my shoulders," he said. "I take responsibility for it, both ends of the floor. It's tough, especially the way we lost at home for Game 6. But it happened and we move forward."Lil B felt so bad about Harden's awful performance that he lifted the Based God curse he had hit the Rocket with two years ago for stealing his cooking dance.
I apologize to James harden I'm ready to talk and end the curse... it's time to talk and be the leader everyone believes you are - Lil B— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) May 12, 2017
The rest of Twitter wasn't so forgiving of Harden's debacle.

After the devastating loss, Harden went right out to the club. Something Twitter also had fun with.
