As he has done in the past, Rocky attempted several half-court shots with his back to the basket and flinging the ball over his head with the hopes that it would go in.
So why was Tuesday night's effort any different?
After a handful of missed opportunities, Rocky felt like he needed a little inspiration to guide the ball into the basket.
Much to the delight of the crowd in attendance, Rocky ripped off the top layer of his attire to reveal a Tim Tebow jersey underneath.
That's right, even mascots are a part of the Tebow movement.
What better way to fire up a home crowd in Denver than by the announcer saying, "It's Tebow time," and Rocky subsequently firing shots from half court?
Well, maybe there is one.
After several misses, Rocky got down on one knee and showed off his Tebowing skills to the crowd, and everyone paying any attention was fired up by the motivational move.
On the very next attempt, Rocky swished the ball through the bottom of the net and celebrated with several short-lived Tebow poses from a variety of areas on the court.
Call it luck, divine intervention or something in between, it's pretty remarkable that the shot right after the Tebow pose at center court was the one that went through the hoop.
Some say mascots in basketball are overrated, but I'm fairly certain Rocky and the Nuggets fans in attendance on Tuesday night would strongly disagree with that sentiment.
