Mascot, player try to knock down bat before D-League game

When the D-League’s Austin Spurs and Fort Wayne Mad Ants took the hardwood, a bat refused to let the game get underway.

As you can see in the video above, the teams get ready for the tip off before a bat comes streaking across the floor. The Mad Ants mascot did his best to catch the winged animal, and Mike Muscala attempted to kick the bat out of the air to no avail.

Eventually the game got underway as the bat was removed.

Too bad Manu Ginobili wasn’t out there.
