Dwight Howard Rewrites History; Kyrie Irving Wins His Duel With Steve Nash

Dwight Howard

Just put Dwight on the line, right? That was Mark Jackson‘s strategy on Thursday against Orlando and it seemed good for a while against the career 59 percent free-throw shooter. The Magic didn’t lead through the first quarter after going wire-to-wire against Portland in its own building the night before.

Since losing senior forward Trevor Mbakwe for the season following a knee injury, Williams has moved to the power forward position and has averaged 13.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.0 steals and 2.5 blocks per game. Two of those points include this ridiculous in-game 360 in a win against USC on Saturday. Read More »
