The Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks rivalry has been contentious to say the least. Following the Rockets’ Game 5 victory and first round series win over the rival Mavs the Rockets Twitter account sent this out.

To the Mavs credit they did not stoop down to the Rockets’ level, instead congratulating their rival and wishing them playoff success.

Apparently the rest of the Rockets organization felt the same about the tweet. After apologizing on Twitter to the Mavs and their fans the team fired their social media manager.

The Rockets await the winner of the grueling Spurs-Clippers series while the Mavs look forward to next season. Needless to say this rivalry is going to get a little nastier next season and beyond.
