A little girl at a game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz on Tuesday night had the fan experience of a lifetime.

In the video, the girl can be seen in the middle of the basketball court after the game was stopped to clean the floor.

The Utah Jazz mascot takes her hand and leads her off the court. He hands her a basketball and the Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio steps up to bounce the ball back and forth with the girl.

The mascot eventually puts the girl on his shoulder and carries her back into the stands.

Rubio had 13 assists during the game. The final score was Timberwolves 112, Jazz 97.
