As the crowd roared its approval, Marjanovic pointed to the sky – seemingly an admission that he had done it on purpose.

The Rockets broadcast lost their minds, with one of the broadcasters screaming, ‘Ah! He gave them chicken! He’s a man of the people! He gave out free chicken!’

There wasn’t much for the Rockets to play for, outside of avoiding a losing season with a victory – as the team had been long eliminated from the playoffs.

But they did get that win by a score of 116-105 to finish 41-41 this season.

As for the Clippers, they’re the four-seed in the Western Conference playoffs with a 51-31 record. They’ll play the five-seed Dallas Mavericks in the playoffs.
