There was something of an unexpected turn of events during Houston Rockets' win against the Washington Wizards on Saturday night, with proceedings twice brought to a halt because of rain.
An NBA game suspended due to rain? Yes, you read correctly. A leaky roof at the Verizon Center meant the referee had to stop the encounter for a total of 57 minutes before the hole was sufficiently plugged up.
These breaks in play served as a frustration for everyone, most notably the players, but some were able to find ways to keep themselves active and entertained while the problem was attended to.
Rockets forward Dwight Howard was one of those as he engaged in a 1on1 battle with a small child in full view of the restless crowd. Howard, however, was not about to make himself look foolish and was happy to impose his supremacy on the kid.
The former Lakers star showed no mercy as he dunked on young boy in question, while he also smacked down any attempt the kid had at the rim. Cue boos from the Washington crowd.
