It seems that the Eastern Semifinals did not start in the best way for the Brooklyn Nets, as James Harden had to leave the game in the first minutes.
According to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps and Malika Andrews, Harden apparently injured his hamstring in his first attack to the basket in Game 1 of his Semifinal series against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Immediately ‘La Barba’ grabbed his right hamstring and could no longer run, did not even jog and went directly to the locker room.
He appeared to be clutching his right hamstring, the same one that caused him to miss more than a month in the regular season.
Moments later, the Nets reported that James Harden would be out of the game due to a strained right hamstring.
