For Dwight Howard, staying loose by playing one-on-one with a little kid was his plan of action.
During the first rain delay in the 2nd quarter that lasted 32-minutes, Howard first decided to get some practice blocking shots by swatting a half court heave from the Wizards’ mascot.
He then moved on to the little kid, who unfortunately, did not score.
