While on the floor scrambling for the ball, James took advantage of a cheap shot and appeared to have knee’d LeBron in his groin during the third quarter of the game. The Rockets & James Harden claims it was just an accidental reaction .. but .. if you take a look at the moment for yourself, you might say differently.
Game officials gave James a flagrant foul for the kick. But that didn’t stop the Rockets from defeating the Cavaliers in overtime with the final score of 105-103.
After the game, he chopped it up with reporters saying, “It’s a reaction. They called a flagrant. Next play we moved on.”
But the league isn’t having it. The NBA announced James Harden will be suspended for one game for the flagrant contact with James’ little James’.
