The Houston Rockets are hosting the Los Angeles Lakers in a showdown of two teams looking to make deep playoff runs this postseason.
During the second quarter of their matchup, reigning league MVP James Harden caught Lakers’ big man Javale McGee slipping and powered in a left-handed jam. Harden’s dunk sparked a strong finish to the end of the quarter which gave the Rockets a six-point halftime lead. But the dunk itself wasn’t the most entertaining part; a case could be made for Harden’s demonstrativeness afterward, pausing then flexing to the adulation of the crowd.
