Kings troll Russ, who claps back postgame after Lakers' loss originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Kings took their in-game trolling to a whole new level with Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Lakers in town, but the former MVP made sure to get the last laugh following the 125-116 Sacramento win.

Every time Westbrook missed a shot during Wednesday night's game, the Kings played "Cold as Ice" on the arena's speakers.

The Kings also used an interesting graphic on the video board at Golden 1 Center for Westbrook. The veteran hit back during his postgame press conference and mentioned the franchise's extensive playoff drought.

"That's funny, I hope they played that the last 14 years, it's funny they'll play it now, that's cute," Westbrook quipped to reporters.

After the troll-job made waves, ABC10's Sean Cunningham reported Thursday, citing a source with the NBA, that the Kings would not be allowed to do the bit anymore.

Westbrook went 2-of-14 from the field and finished with eight points and six assists. It was Westbrook's third consecutive game in single-digit points, and he has shot 20 percent from the field over that span.

With LA on the edge of the playoff picture, Lakers Twitter devolved into chaos as fans grapple with the limited probability of Westbrook being moved before the trade deadline.

It has been a long season for Kings fans, but a pair of wins over LeBron and the Lakers certainly provides a bit of comfort.
