Andrew Bogut was upset with the Houston Rockets for running up the score Tuesday, so he responded by calling them out over Twitter after the game.
Bogut called the Rockets a dirty name while referencing the next meeting between the teams in his incredibly crafted tweet:
C U Next Tuesday fellas!

In case you couldn’t figure out the bad name Bogut called the Rockets, just look at the first letter of the first four terms he wrote.
Why was Bogut so steamed? The Rockets worked the Warriors 140-109 in Houston while making 23 3-pointers — one short of setting the NBA record. The home fans were chanting for the Rockets to get the record, but the Warriors wouldn’t allow it; they began fouling the Rockets to prevent them from attempting threes.
“We’re not going to lay down,” said Warriors coach Mark Jackson after the game. “So if you’re going to try to get the record, we’re going to stop you. There’s a way to get the record. That’s all.”

The Rockets went off Tuesday night against the Warriors, scoring a staggering 140 points, thanks largely to an NBA-recording-tying 23 3-pointers made. They were gunning for the outright record in the waning minutes of the game, but the Warriors would be damned if they were going to let a record be broken on them.
They fouled hard when a Rocket would attempt a 3, milked the clock...
The Houston Rockets put on a three point shooting clinic in Houston last night in their 140-109 beatdown of the Golden State Warriors. And when we say “put on a three point shooting clinic”, we mean that Rockets tied the NBA record by hitting 23 three pointers in the game.
Of course, once number 23 went in, the Rockets (and their crowd) were all about hitting number 24 and setting...
