NBA Playoffs: Partying The Reason For James Harden's Struggles?


 

Houston Rockets All-Star guard James Harden picked the worst possible time to go through a slump. However, the struggles could be connected with Harden’s off-court festivities rather than what the Portland Trail Blazers have been throwing at him.

According to a well connected source, Harden was seen partying it up all weekend prior to the Rockets’ first playoff game Sunday night.

 

 

Nate Fitch is a close friend and business manager of Johnny Manziel, and tweeted it out following the Rockets’ Game 2 loss Wednesday night.

Harden is shooting just 29 percent(14 for 47) in the series while the Blazers have stolen the first 2 games in Houston.

Should this be true, then heading to Portland for Games 3 and 4 could be the best thing for Harden and the Rockets as they try to climb back into the series.

 

What Will Be The Outcome For The Series?
