Last night, the Houston Rockets easily defeated the Boston Celtics, 109-85, but there was one player on that Rockets team who did catch an L yesterday. His name is Dwight Howard and it came at the hands of the team's mascot, Clutch, in a behind-the-back from halfcourt shot contest during shootaround.

Hey, at least Howard could beat Clutch in a free-throw compet...wait, scratch that. OK, OK. But DH would win in a trampoline-less dunk-off, right?

Sidebar: Clutch straight disrespected Howard with that "I spanked that ass" ass slap at the end of the video.
