Houston Rockets' team Twitter account returns after brief suspension

Houston Rockets' team Twitter account returns after brief suspension

Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Monday afternoon at 4:30, streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Things just aren't going well for the Rockets.

About a week and a half ago, the Warriors ended Houston's season for the fourth time in the last five seasons, as the Kevin Durant-less Dubs went in to Houston and eliminated the Rockets in their second-round NBA playoff series. 

Last weekend, GM Daryl Morey sent out a strange tweet the team fired its defensive coordinator, Jeff Bzdelik.

And on Monday:

At this point, we have no clue what triggered the suspension.

On Thursday morning, the account was re-activated. The Rockets announced their return with a GIF.

But after a report surfaced that James Harden and Chris Paul had a verbal exchange following their Game 6 loss to the Warriors, should they really be dancing like that?

Warriors vs. Lakers live stream: How to watch NBA preseason game

It seems like we’ve been here before.

The Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers will match up for the third time this preseason Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

The two clubs played just two days ago at Staples Center, with the Lakers coming out on top with a 104-98 win.

Steph Curry will not play in the penultimate preseason game for Golden State, and forward Omari Spellman also will sit after a tweaked back suffered in Monday night’s loss.

Anthony Davis, who missed Monday’s game, is expected to suit up for Los Angeles.

Steve Kerr jokes with Klay Thompson about redshirt year with Warriors

Steve Kerr jokes with Klay Thompson about redshirt year with Warriors

Now this is the kind of content you are here for.

Steve Kerr spoke to reporters after shootaround Wednesday morning. And as he saw guard Klay Thompson walking nearby, the Warriors coach busted out the jokes.

"Klay, we don't really need at all," Kerr said.

After Thompson responded with "redshirt season," Kerr seized the opportunity to roast the two-time All-NBA selection.

"We're redshirting him, trying to get him bigger and stronger. Get him used to campus life. Academically, he's got a ways to go ..."

Klay is rehabbing his torn left ACL, and will be sidelined until at least the All-Star break.

It's possible that the five-time All-Star misses the whole season, hence the "redshirt" reference.

But the Warriors sure hope that doesn't become the reality and Klay is able to come back at the end of the regular season for a playoff push.
