Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

James Harden was frustrated. He was so frustrated that he slammed the ball down onto the court Saturday night, but didn’t calculate the physics of his action.

The result of his action was a basketball to the face.

At the half, Harden’s Houston Rockets are all knotted up with the New Orleans Pelicans, 61-61. Harden has 13 points and four assists but is just 4-of-14 from the floor.
