Prior to tip-off at every home game, the "First Shot" ceremony will take place with a featured celebrity or local personality shooting one free throw. A made free throw will earn $5,000 for charity with a missed free throw earning $1,000.
The inaugural "First Shot" for Saturday's home opener will be taken by Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Hopkins' shot will benefit Houston's Children's Charity, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for underprivileged, abused and disabled children in greater Houston.
