James Harden leaves Game 2 after being smacked in eye
The star players were dropping like flies in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets on Tuesday night.
First it was Steph Curry suffering a dislocated finger a few minutes into the game. Then a few minutes later, James Harden left the game after being inadvertently smacked in the eye by Draymond Green.

Green caught Harden while going up for a rebound off Harden’s miss. He did not hit the Rockets star intentionally and even approached him to let him know that.
Harden subbed out halfway through the first quarter after being hurt and went to the locker room with an eye injury. He was 0/3 in the game and had not scored to that point.
