That NBA Lottery Pick:
Earlier tonight on That NBA Lottery Pick, we noted that the Washington Wizards/Houston Rockets game had a rain delay and as you might figure, players had to find a way to pass the time.
During the delay, Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard got to shoot some hoops with little kids and also got the opportunity to deny a shot from the Wizards mascot:

Dwight Howard was bored, so he decided to treat Instagram to the "NaeNae Dance."
The Houston Rockets visited Washington to take on John Wall and the Wizards. While Dwight Howard and Co. would emerge victorious as expected, there was something that was quite unexpected, a rain delay.
Yup, you read that correctly, a rain delay. During this Dwight Howard took on the Wizards mascot and a young basketball fan. You would think Dwight would lift him up for a dunk or...
Dwight Howard likes to dance. Somehow he got hooked up with WeAreToonz so that he could teach the world to “drop that nae nae.”
As Kobe called it, Dwight’s “clown act” seems to be working in Houston though. They are 24-12.
These things are funny when you are winning though.
The Houston Rockets thought it would be funny to use their mascot 'Clutch the Bear' to scare their players as they arrived to the arena. It was...for the most part.I could have done without the fake Dwight Howard reaction at the end. Howard was obviously tipped off by someone via text prior to his arrival. Some of the reactions were pretty good though...legitimately scared.
This is hands down one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen. CBS Sports posted a video of Houston Rockets mascot Clutch the Bear scaring the entire team as they left practice. The finale of Dwight Howard throwing his phone and losing his mind is my favorite. Props to all the players for being good sports and to Clutch for taking the lickings after the fact.

Among the interesting tidbits floating around the D-League Showcase in Reno, Nev., this week involved the possibility of the Rockets pairing Dwight Howard with Deron Williams in Houston -- an arrangement that now seems farfetched if not impossible.
Remember that the thrust of the Nets' multiple attempts to acquire Howard in a trade two seasons ago was to team him up with Williams...
In what may be one of the best viral pranks of recent history, the Houston Rockets mascot, “Clutch the Bear”, waited outside the players entrance/exit area and proceeded to scare the heck out of a majority of the Rockets players. Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin, James Harden, and Dwight Howard all fell victim to the bear-scare, in what promises to live on in one of the greatest...
The Atlanta Hawks came into Philips Arena fired up after their win at home on Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers. Atlanta formed a ferocious rally to defeat the Houston Rockets after being down early in the first quarter, 11-0. Paul Millsap had a phenomenal game with 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
