The Houston Rockets have finally defeated the Dallas Mavericks in the opening round of the NBA Playoffs. On Sunday, the Mavs avoided the sweep by defeating the Rockets 121-109, but James Harden and company came back strong, outplaying Dallas yesterday to close out the series.

Houston-Rockets, Twitter

Immediately following the tweet, the Dallas Mavericks responded.


A week of sports news in your in-box.
We find the sports news you need to know, so you don't have to.

So, of course, the Rockets deleted the original tweet and released an apology.

When did sports become so cordial? People being nice is not why I watch these games. I love when two teams absolutely hate each other. It makes everything more interesting.

The Rockets next take on the winner of the Spurs and Clippers series.
