The Houston Rockets' game against the Dallas Mavericks for Friday was postponed amid ongoing freezing temperatures in the area, but John Wall found a better way to spend his sudden free time the night before the game. 

After posting a call to action on his Instagram story, asking for restaurant suggestions, Wall said he was able to provide 500 meals from Whataburger to families staying at a Houston furniture store that turned into a shelter as ice storms spread across the region.

Millions of people across the state were left without power after historically low temperatures swept the region. 

The Mavericks had their Wednesday game against Detroit postponed, and the NHL's Dallas Stars have called off their last three games.
