Who knew that Bango the mascot was this scary?  The Milwaukee Bucks mascot startles Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard.  See his funny reaction.

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 113-103 on Thursday night.  Before the game, Bango the Milwaukee Bucks mascot freaked Dwight Howard out enough to make the enormous center do a pirouette.  Well, he didn’t actually spin on his toe, but it was close enough.  Howard spun around after being shocked by good ole Bango.

For all of the silly comments that Dwight Howard has made this season, like the quality of his former teammates in Orlando, he still has a great sense of humor.  It’s actually nice to see the guy smile and laugh again.  He should do more of that and less talking because he always seems to stick his foot squarely in his mouth.

The Los Angeles Lakers are fighting for their playoff lives.  The Lakers are a ½ game ahead of the Utah Jazz for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.  Whether the Lakers clinch a spot or not, listen to plenty of NBA Playoff coverage on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
