Ganados sat courtside to watch the historic first meeting of Clarkson and Green.

“Jordan Clarkson & Jalen Green became the first two players of Filipino descent to share the court in an NBA game! 

Aside from meeting them both in person, I can’t believe I actually got to run around the court and fire the huuuggee shirt gun!” Gazini wrote on Facebook.

She said she was “glad to see some of our kababayans in Houston and witness this historic moment” in time with the celebration of the Filipino American Heritage Month in the United States.

Clarkson and Green made history as they were the first Filipinos to share the same court in the NBA.

The Jazz beat the Rockets, 122-91 on Thursday night.    /rcg
