Dwight Howard drives for impressive reverse dunk vs. Blazers (VIDEO)

At first glance, this is a play more suited to Kevin Durant than Dwight Howard, mainly because we’re just not used to seeing seven-footers put the ball on the floor and blow by their defenders so quickly, and then elevate for the slam.

But Howard showed he has this skill set during Monday’s win over the Blazers, and clearly, Joel Freeland (like the rest of us) weren’t really expecting it.

    The bigger story here is that Dwight is now 7ft tall. Mitch was taller than him last year and he’s about 6’10. Good to hear she is still growing.

    See what happens when Howard is finally feeling healthy again? Got to wonder if Olajuwan is back in Houston from his African trip and working with him again.

    The bigger thing, though, is that he made his free throws, going 6 of 9. If he can do that every night – look out.

    Aw, I thought he was going to do one of those dunks with the back to the rim :(
