Before players could break a sweat in Monday night's matchup between the Washington Wizards and the Houston Rockets, the game had to be delayed 35 minutes because of a crooked rim.

According to the Rockets' Twitter account, Dwight Howard tried to fix the problem himself. 

Unfortunately, the big man wasn't able to resolve the issue. As a result, a whole new basket and stanchion had to be brought out. 

The length of the delay had some suggesting this might not have been a coincidence.

Conspiracy? You be the judge.
