Utah Jazz recorded an impressive 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets last night, but their lovable mascot Jazz Bear may well have put their tremendous efforts in the shade after serenading official Mark Ayotte midway through the fourth quarter.
Jazz Bear took the opportunity to challenge Ayotte to an impromptu dance-off during a break in-play, with the official's initial apprehension soon giving way to a strange smile.
Ayotte soon found himself with a bear shaking his hips and appeared a willing participant, allowing Jazz Bear to strut his stuff on the floor with a new partner, much to the delight of a packed Energy Solutions Arena.
This latest viral treat is not the first time Jazz Bear has captured the attention for more than cheering on his team, who tangled with an angry Houston Rockets fan earlier this season in another enjoyable exchange.
