Utah Jazz guard Ricky Rubio has no real shot at defending Houston Rockets star and likely NBA MVP James Harden.
The early part of Game 2 of their Western Conference Quarterfinals series proved this to a T.
Overmatched in every possible way, Rubio saw Harden embarrass him off the dribble. It led to a wide-open three from the Association’s leading scorer.
In hilarious fashion, Harden decided to show off before attempting the trey. The shot itself failed miserably.
Given the way Game 1 went, this might be the only lowlight for Harden over the course of the series.
Even then, it was vintage Shaqtin’ a Fool.
