The Houston Rockets won Game 4 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night, thanks in large part to James Harden's 45 points, leading many to think he had broken free from Lil B's Based God curse.

The Bay Area rapper is letting everyone know that the curse is still on though, and he will be making sure it takes full effect by attending Game 5 at Oracle Arena.

The Rockets shooting guard first drew the ire of Lil B earlier in the series when the rapper said Harden had stolen his "cooking dance" celebration from Lil B's "I Cook" music video.

The Oracle Arena is excited enough about the visit that officials tweeted out that the rapper will be attending the game, but it could backfire if Harden gets a chance to formally say "Thank you, Based God," thus ending the curse.
