VIDEO: Rockets star James Harden hits Jae Crowder in the nuts, gets Flagrant 1
James Harden took “nutmegging” to a whole new level in the Houston Rockets versus Memphis Grizzlies match on Monday night.
The bearded guard was called for a flagrant foul 1 after hitting Jae Crowder in the groin area with just under two minutes left in regulation.
Replays showed that Harden did extend his left arm and caught Crowder — who was squared up at the time — at the nether regions, causing him to writhe in pain.

The pair were already getting at it prior to the hit, as Crowder blanketed Harden for most of the game. Harden even applauded the officials after making the F1 call.
The Rockets managed to win the game 107-100 and ended their two-game slide. They improve to 4-3 in the season, while Memphis dropped to 1-5. Harden led the way with 44 points, 10 boards and six assists.
