The Utah Jazz were mere seconds away from losing their 46th game of the season 124-86 to the Houston Rockets on Monday night when John Lucas decided on a penultimate embarrassment for his team. Lucas stole the ball from the Rockets, who were letting the final five seconds of the clock run out, and went to score a basket. Why? Because then the Jazz would only have lost by 36. Except Utah didn’t score the layup. So as time expired, Lucas decided to push the Rockets’ Francisco Garcia and then challenge him to fisticuffs with a limp right jab that didn’t come near anyone.

Like many, John Lucas III was appalled when he found out Salt Lake City elementary school students had their lunches taken away and trashed a couple of weeks ago. Lucas called his agent and told him, “Hey, man, that’s not right.” Feeling annoyed and compassionate, Lucas decided to do some things that are very right. For one thing, Lucas is planning on making a financial contribution to help fund Uintah Elementary School’s lunch program. The NBA player, with a history of generosity and benevolent acts, also reached out to the family of one of the approximately 40 students whose meals were thrown in the garbage because of alleged insufficient funds in their school lunch accounts. Lucas bought Jazz jerseys for an 11-year-old, a parent and four friends and purchased tickets so they could attend last Monday’s home game against the Toronto Raptors. “I wanted them to enjoy the game because I know it’d been a rough couple of days for them,” Lucas said. “I just wanted them to forget about what was going on and just enjoy being a kid and not worrying about anything.” Deseret Morning News
