Dwight Howard After Loss To Warriors: “Hawks Are The Best Team” (Video)

Dwight Howard, Stephen Curry

Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets have played the Golden State Warriors four times this season, and have come away loser on all four occasions. You’d think Houston’s defensive bell cow would have utmost respect for The Bay’s team, then, but you’d be wrong. Asked after last night’s 126-113 drubbing at the hands of Golden State if he’d just faced basketball’s best team, Howard demurred. Read More »

Report: OKC-Nets Talks Falter; Rockets Are Now Interested In Brook — Huh?

Brook Lopez, Dwight Howard

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Nets-Thunder talks have disintegrated because for Brooklyn, “there was nothing we liked.” But Woj also said that Houston had inquired about Brook Lopez‘s services, which is weird because they already have a center; his name is Dwight Howard — in case you’ve forgotten about him during his disappointing opening half to the 2014-15 season.

Video: Kevin Garnett Ejected For Head-Butting Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett

Oh man, Kevin Garnett is working through something in Brooklyn these days. I think he misses Paul. During the first quarter of the Nets-Rockets game tonight, a routine rebound and whistle on KG turned into a scrum with Dwight Howard that reached an apex (or nadir) when KG thrust his head into Howard’s face after spiking the ball at him.

Goran Dragic Says Roy Hibbert Is Easiest Player For Him To Finish Over

Roy Hibbert, Goran Dragic

Last night Phoenix beat up on the Sixers, 112-96, but Goran Dragic struggled from the field, going just 1-of-6 from downtown and 3-of-13 overall on his way to 10 points. He also had 10 rebounds, three steals and a blocks, playing beyond his 6-3 frame. But finds it’s easiest against Indiana’s lumbering 7-2 center, Roy Hibbert, as he told Bleacher Report’s Jared Zwerling in a piece published yesterday. Read More »

GIF: Dwight Howard Stretches For And-1 Alley-Oop While Being Shoved

Dwight Howard

Getting shoved in the midsection by Khris Humphries – while airborne, no less – would send most players crashing to the floor, but not Dwight Howard. The Houston Rockets behemoth barely notices contact from the Washington Wizards big man on this massive and-1 alley-oop jam. Read More »

Video: Arron Afflalo’s Game-Tying 3-Pointer At The Buzzer Wasted In OT Loss

James Harden, Arron Afflalo, Dwight Howard

It’s not often a team is tasked with taking the ball out from under their own basket with only 3.7 seconds in regulation, down by three. Usually they’d advance the ball. Also, this gives the winning team time to foul and avoid a game-tying 3-pointer. Except, Patrick Beverley failed to foul Ty Lawson in time as he sprinted across half-court and found Arron Afflalo for the game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer last night in Denver. Read More »
