Jose Altuve took a free throw at the Spurs-Rockets game, but couldn't convert

On Saturday night, a member of the Astros turned up at the Toyota Center for a Rockets game. No, not Alex Bregman, though he's been seen just about everywhere lately, including basketball games. 

No, this time Jose Altuve was a special guest of the Rockets for their game against the Spurs: 

It eventually became time for Altuve to head to the free-throw line and take a shot ... only to see it miss, clanging off the unforgiving front rim (as captured by Astros field reporter Julia Morales):

A missed free throw stings, but hey -- at least Jose didn't get crashed into by P.J. Tucker
