James Harden can’t flop his way past the Warriors
The Rockets dropped Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals to the Warriors, and following the game James Harden complained about not getting calls from the refs, specifically when drawing contact on several threes.
Colin thinks Harden’s game is predicated on drawing fouls, and he’s added more and more flopping to his repertoire to get to the line more. The problem for Harden is that his flopping isn’t as effective against the best officials deeper in the playoffs. Harden can’t rely on officials to whistle the Warriors to death, and he needs to change up his approach instead of complaining about it. It’s a different game now.
