Sitting courtside at an NBA game is a great experience, but it does come with a few risks. Patrons are just feet away from the action, which sometimes spills into the crowd. Astros infielder Alex Bregman experienced this first hand during Tuesday night's Rockets game, when P.J. Tucker collided with his beer while diving for a loose ball.
Bregman, who was seated alongside Astros owner Jim Crane, was given a towel to dry himself off. He seemed to get a kick out of the whole ordeal. In fact, Bregman even flashed his patented stare-down before signing a few autographs.

Tucker logged 29 minutes in Tuesday night's 111-104 victory over the Trail Blazers, scoring seven points on 3-of-6 shooting from the field (1-of-3 from beyond the arc) and five rebounds.
James Harden led the Rockets in scoring against the Blazers. The Beard played 32 minutes, scoring 29 points on 10-of-21 shooting (4-of-9 from beyond the arc), four assists, one rebound and one steal.
The Rockets snapped a three-game losing streak with Tuesday's win, moving their record to 12-14 (5th in the Southwest Division standings). Their next shot at claiming a victory comes on Thursday, when they'll welcome the Los Angeles Lakers to town. Tip-off inside the Toyota Center is set for 8:00 p.m. EST with TNT having live broadcast coverage.
