The Rockets and Clippers were beefing Monday at Staples Center following Los Angeles' 113-102 victory, and hilarity ensued when Twitter roasted them for it.
Rockets guard Chris Paul, who spent six seasons in Los Angeles before requesting a trade this past offseason, reportedly led his teammates to the Clippers locker room through a secret passage.
Paul showed up outside the locker room with James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green looking for Austin Rivers and Blake Griffin after Clint Capela was used as a diversion. While the incident didn't escalate, Twitter just couldn't let it go.
