After the Rockets staved off elimination for a second straight game with Wednesday's 107-100 win in Game 5, White tweeted his confidence at the Thunder and Durant:
"And... that's why you play the games. That @okcthunder team just looked shook. They're looking shaky baby."
White followed with another tweet to Durant.
"@KDTrey5... Y'all are looking SHAAAKYY BAAABYY."
A first-round draft pick of the Rockets last year, White suffers from an anxiety disorder and has not played with the team this season. Instead, he spent time with its D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
The eighth-seeded Rockets are trying to become the first team in NBA history to win a series after dropping the first three games. Game 6 is Friday in Houston.
