Santa Claus smashes face on rim during Bulls-Rockets game (Video)
During a break in the action at the United Center during the Chicago Bulls-Houston Rockets game on Christmas Day, the Bulls' Dunk Trampoline Team, known as the "Elevators", put on their high-flying act while wearing Santa Claus costumes. Unfortunately, one of the Santas had a slight miscalculation with his dunk and ended up smashing his face on the rim.
Ironically, the incident summed up how the game would go for the hometown Bulls, as the Rockets blew them out in a 120-97 victory.
