Houston, we have a problem.
On Monday, many users on social media noticed that the official Twitter account for the Rockets was temporarily suspended.
The Rockets' season has certainly come to a standstill following their elimination from the NBA playoffs, so news of the suspension has created an entertaining diversion for fans.
UPDATE at 5 p.m. ET: The Rockets account was formally suspended for copyright issues.
"Our Twitter account has been temporarily suspended due to a few prior social media posts with copyrighted music," the Rockets said in a statement. "We are working to correct the issue now."
While we wait for the account to return, the reactions online are certainly worth sharing fantastic.

The @houstonrockets twitter account has been suspended. Twitter better be careful or James Harden will get 3 free throws for this.
