Walker lifts Spurs; Rockets fall in 2OT despite Harden’s 50

Rockets star Harden soared to the basket and slammed the ball through the hoop so hard that as it left the bottom of the net it spun back toward the rim and bounced off - leaving flummoxed game officials to rule no basket on the play.

'When the play happened [James] Harden goes in for a dunk, and then the ball appears to us to pop back up through the net, ' he said.

Capers also explained that his crew was initially under the belief that the ball failed to go completely through the cylinder.

ESPN's Tim MacMahon says the Rockets are hopeful the league will either reverse the result or allow for the final 7:50 of regulation to be replayed. D'Antoni attempted to challenge the call and was denied. I said, 'Well, I challenge that.' They go, 'Can't do that.' I don't know.

"We just stopped playing and they gained confidence", Harden said.

However, the Rockets are optimistic the league will award them a victory after the botched call on the Harden dunk, according to espn.com. Westbrook shot 7-for-30 (23.3 percent) from the floor and was 1-for-6 (16.6 percent) on 3-point field goal attempts.

Jay-Z’s 50th birthday celebrated with a return to Spotify
After a two-year hiatus, Shawn " Jay Z " Carter's music is back on Spotify and it's just in time for his fiftieth birthday . However, Spotify announced the news by wishing him a Happy Birthday on Twitter earlier today.

"I said, "Well I challenge that" - can't do that". You know, I don't know, to answer your question. "I've got nothing, I can't tell you".

Capers said the Rockets did not ask for a review within the 30-second window that coaches can challenge calls, during which time they were arguing and asking for clarification. That end of that game was replayed and the Spurs beat the Lakers. Clint Capela had 22 points and 21 rebounds in the loss. However, replays showed that the ball came back over the rim after clearing through the net. It was determined that the official scorer incorrectly had ruled that Shaquille O'Neal fouled out with 51.9 seconds left. They replayed the final 51.9 seconds before their next game, though the Heat still lost.

As James Harden - the NBA's most-infamous foul-drawer - stepped to the line in the first quarter, he had a quick back-and-forth with a San Antonio fan.

Running mate Russell Westbrook added 19 points of his own, but the duo's poor shooting arguably proved costly for the Rockets. "They got hot, made shots and we just didn't do anything to combat it".

Despite the controversial play, Harden went on to finish with another monster stat line of 50 points, nine rebounds and six assists - following up his 60-point explosion against Atlanta in stylish fashion.
