The finish line to the NBA playoffs is within eye sight and with that being the case the growing tensions between the Lakers and 7th seeded Houston Rockets is reaching a boiling point.
The Lakers are still on the outside looking in resting at 9th place and two games behind in the loss column as they’re finally back to playing .500 ball. The Rockets want anything else but a contending Lakers team down the stretch so what better way to add fuel to the ‘rivalry’ than for Rockets GM Darly Morey to troll.
Morey sent out this tweet just hours before the Lakers vs Thunder game is set to tip off.
A message to the Oklahoma City Thunder: I just want to say good luck, we are all counting on you

No doubt he’s getting an earful in his mentions from Lakers fans, but still, advantage Rockets.
