Rockets star James Harden drew a rather theatrical foul against Hawks guard Kent Bazemore on Saturday.

With Houston trailing by 11 midway through the second quarter, Harden took a soft forearm from Bazemore, spun around counterclockwise, and crashed to the ground. Bazemore was in disbelief.

Harden could have a voicemail from the commissioner’s office waiting for him after the game.
