PJ Tucker's slide into courtside causes Alex Bregman to spill drink

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- "I have the best slide in the game," Alex Bregman may have said once.

"Hold my drink," PJ Tucker could have replied at one point.

The Houston Astros star grabbed some attention and a towel Tuesday night while sitting courtside at the Rockets game.

During the second quarter, while seated next to 'Stros owner Jim Crane and his wife, Bregman got a little too close to the game when Tucker went for a loose ball heading out of bounds. The Rockets forward then rolled on his back and stopped at the feet of Bregman and others, causing the third baseman to spill his drink.

Action during the Rockets' game with Portland paused to get the mess cleaned up, and Bregman was also offered a towel to dry off the spillage on his lap.

To that point, the crowd inside Toyota Center gave Bregman an ovation, more than likely out of overall appreciation for his hustle on the field.

When the fiasco calmed down, Bregman playfully ribbed on Tucker about the beer bath.

This isn't the first time that "A-Breg" made a stop at a ballgame in town. Bregman was spotted donning a No. 2 Houston Texans jersey to support the AFC South leaders on Sunday.
