The Houston Rockets entered as massive, double-digit favorites in Game 2 but, after the Joe Ingles Show exploded for the world to see, James Harden and company will be headed to Salt Lake City without the benefit of homecourt advantage in the series. In the midst of the surprising defeat, Harden and his team were captured on camera leaving the floor for halftime (with a nine-point deficit) and, in what has become a more frequent occurrence, the MVP front-runner was greeted with a heckler and a camera phone on his way to the tunnel.

Harden appeared to say something to the fan while breezing by but his teammate, veteran center Nene, came to his star guard’s defense with a bit of a shove/stiff arm as he walked on by.
