Rockets poke fun at Ricky Rubio after getting his ankles broken

James Harden is a bad, bad man.

In the Rockets' 113-102 win over the Timberwolves on Monday night, the three-time All-Star got the basketball world on its feet with an ankle breaker that left Ricky Rubio grasping at straws. He punctuated the move with a tightly contested step-back th

ree-pointer, because that's what you do when you're an MVP candidate and the league's leading scorer.

The sequence was so filthy that the Rockets were worried for Rubio's well-being. For the remainder of the game, they cracked jokes at expense of his ankles on Twitter, even though you aren't meant to kick a man while he's down.

Harden finished the contest with a triple-double, his second of the season. He may want to take it easier on the competition.
