Video: Houston Rockets fall victim to mascot scare prank

- January 10th, 2014

Clutch the Bear is at it again.

The Houston Rockets mascot, known for scaring fans as they grab some grub during intermissions, decided to target some bigger victims … the players themselves.

As the Rockets enter the Toyota Center before a morning practice, many keeping a close eye on the mascot, Clutch plays it perfectly by just standing still. But after the workout, with many players distracted on their phones, the mascot awakes from his hibernation.

And the result is pretty awesome.

Dwight Howard’s reaction takes the cake, with the phone toss and kick to the groin self-defence move.

But something tells me Superman knew about this ‘scare’ ahead of time.

The takeaway lesson for basketball players and fans in Houston? Beware the bear.
