Dwight Howard loses to Rockets mascot in halfcourt shooting contest
NOV 20, 2013 9:13a ET
On Tuesday, he lost an over-the-back halfcourt shot match with the Houston Rockets' mascot, Clutch the Bear.
Clutch proved to be just that as the two were having a little fun during warmups before the Rockets' game against the Boston Celtics.
After making the shot, Clutch even gave Howard a pat on the rear.
At least Howard's attempt wasn't an airball.
Hopefully for Howard, Clutch won't want to get into a free throw shooting contest.
