For some teams in the NBA — those that know they can’t advance far into the playoffs with the likes of the Warriors and Cavaliers in their respective conferences at least — taking down a top team during the regular season is seen as a major achievement, and should be celebrated accordingly.
That’s exactly what the Washington Wizards did after Friday night, when the Wiz took down Western Conference powerhouse the Houston Rockets 121-103.
With no game on the following day, you can imagine just how turned up some players got. Thankfully though, you don’t need to imagine, as Wizards’ forward Otto Porter — who dropped a team-high 26 points on the Rockets — was spotted out and about into the early hours of Saturday celebrating the team win with a bottle in one hand and blonde in the other.
As a big time wizards fan, words don’t describe how happy i was to be turning up with Otto Porter last night! Especially after the win over the #1 seed in the western conference! #WizardsNation pic.twitter.com/ePCqW0CxfR

Just look at that grin.
The Wizards have been slightly disappointing this season compared to past years, currently sitting in 6th place in the East with a 20-16 record, so the celebrations should be short and sweet, but you can’t fault Otto and the other Wiz crew from letting loose a little after defeating the second seed in the West.
