Friday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Juliana Proven; James Harden vs. Curtain
James Harden Beats Up Curtain
The Warriors squeezed out a one-point victory over the Rockets when James Harden couldn't get a shot off in the final possession. Stephen Curry scored 33 points, had six assists and one memorable bench celebration (though his best shot of the night didn't count for anything). Meanwhile Harden, who ignored an open teammate streaking to the hoop on the final play, took out his postgame frustration on a curtain and hurled a random F-bomb.
