C.J. McCollum roasts Dwight Howard over stickum after loss to Thunder
With 11 seconds remaining and the Houston Rockets trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder by two points, James Harden tried lobbing a pass to Dwight Howard for an easy basket that would've tied the game:
The only issue: Harden carelessly threw the ball a little too high for Howard, who wasn't able to grasp it, resulting in a turnover, and ultimately, a loss:

After the game, Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum took a playful shot at Howard, suggesting that he needed stickum -- an illegal adhesive substance Howard was caught using last weekend -- to catch the ball:
Ouch. McCollum isn't the first player to roast Howard either.
Thunder center Steven Adams joked that Howard might miss free throws because of stickum, too:

Don't do the crime if you can't pay the time, which in this case seems to be Howard being mocked by his contemporaries.
