When “Clutch the Bear” is in a room…be afraid, be VERY afraid. The Houston Rockets inflatable mascot seems harmless…until he comes to life when you least expect it! “Clutch” was put outside the practice facility in the morning as players walked by. No big deal. Nothing to see here. Once practice was over, someone slipped inside the costume and gave Rockets players the scare of their life! They jumped…they screamed…they punched…one guy even copped a feel! But the best reaction came from Dwight Howard at the 1:40 mark.
Nothing beats a slow motion kick from Dwight Howard to the groin of a mascot (even if that part was possibly staged).
