It’s always a heated affair when a player matches up against his former team for the first time. That affair becomes an inferno when it's NBA stars John Wall and Russell Westbrook.

In their first game since being traded for each other, Wall and Westbrook got into a heated exchange late in the fourth quarter of the Washington Wizards-Houston Rockets game. The incident resulted in both players getting a technical foul. 

The chirping began during a dead ball after the Rockets were called for a foul, sending Westbrook to the line. It isn’t clear who started the banter, but it's clear that the two NBA guards are not happy with each other.

After officials broke up the two, John Wall began to clap–walking away from the incident–while Russell Westbrook tried to plead his case with the officials. As Russ took to the line, he was still visibly upset and continued his banter. Wall, not responding, continued to clap.

As to what was said, fans will have to wait for the two NBA stars to reveal their side of the story. However, it was clear that Wall and the Rockets got the last laugh on the court. 

The Rockets, already up by 13 at the time of the exchange, compounded on their lead. Wall initiated the run, finding Oladipo in the corner for three. As the triple dropped, Wall kneeled in front of the Wizards’ bench holding out three fingers. Houston closed the game on a 24-9 run.

Houston has now strung together three straight wins in the NBA after beating the Wizards 107-88. Wall finished the game with 24 points and five assists. Eric Gordon and Oladipo each finished with 20 points, while DeMarcus Cousins dropped 19 points to go with 11 rebounds.
