Rockets-Wizards game delayed due to bent rim (VIDEO)


The Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards experienced a bizarre delay on Monday night when the rim on the basket at the Rockets’ end got bent out of shape. The grounds crew at the Honda Center had to install an entirely new basket.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time this has happened in a game the Wizards have played in, according to Grantland’s Zach Lowe:

This is what happens when an unsuspecting rim is subjected to too many bad Josh Smith jump shots.
