James Harden not awarded points for dunk in Houston Rockets game

James Harden scored 50 points Tuesday night, but it was two he didn’t get that proved costly for the Houston Rockets

Well … he actually did get the basket. He was just not awarded the points.

Harden picked off a pass and went streaking the other way for what looked to be an easy dunk in the fourth quarter of the game against the San Antonio Spurs. He threw it down, but the ball ricocheted strangely back up above the rim. It looked like he missed if you weren’t watching close but it did go through, as replays showed.

But the basket did not count as officials said it did not clear the cylinder — notable considering the Rockets went on to lose 135-133 in double overtime
