The Houston Rockets are one win away to securing their spot in the Western Conference Finals.

Last night, the Rockets took a commanding 3-1 lead in their playoff series against the Utah Jazz with a hard fought 100-87 victory in Game 4 at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. The Jazz were within the striking distance for much of the game but unfortunately fell short despite a solid 25 point effort from rooking Donovan Mitchell.

After the game it seems like Mitchell had some beef with James Harden, who has been criticized in the past for “flopping” to generate foul calls.

Here’s what Mitchell was caught saying while he was on his way to the locker room after the loss.

If that’s what he needs to win the fucking MVP, fuck it”.

There were a few questionable calls by the refs last night that benefited Harden like the one below where Exum appeared to put his hands straight up in the air but was still called for the foul.

Despite this call going against the Jazz, it didn’t appear like the Rockets benefited much from the officiating last night so I’m not sure why Mitchell was angry.
