Houston’s dreams of winning an NBA championship are over. The Rockets were thoroughly embarrassed by the Spurs on Thursday night, falling 114-75 in a game that was never in doubt for San Antonio. With the win, Gregg Popovich’s squad moves on to face the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
The Rockets, meanwhile, are tasked with trying to figure out how Game 6 went so poorly. In addition to the rough final score, the team made only nine twos, shot 32.5 percent from three, and MVP candidate James Harden had one of the worst games of his career – 10 points on 2-for-11 shooting, seven assists, and seven turnovers. This was despite the game taking place in Houston and San Antonio being without the services of Kawhi Leonard.
All that said, you can imagine the takes from the internet were pretty hot. Here are some of the best examples.
