Best of luck, Houston Rockets fans. The dreaded Based God's curse might be the difference-maker in the Western Conference Finals. To make matters worse for the Rockets, Lil B told TMZ Sports the Rockets are officially cursed after Harden didn't apologize and give proper credit for his "cooking" celebration.
