Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - It's one of those things that seems like a great idea, but could have quickly taken a wrong turn at any time.

Clutch, the trusty Rockets mascot, decided to play a little prank on the players. So, he waited outside the players' locker room. Every time one left, they would get the scare of their life!

Some of the players punched the inflatable mascot out of fear. Probably the best reaction was from Dwight Howard, who just like Superman, launched into the air with his cell phone flying.
