Dwight Howard said before the game he wanted the ball — he got it and attacked in the first half, scoring 25 points and getting to the rim. He was a beast.
Aldridge got some buckets inside but was 13-of-19 from the midrange and destroyed the Rockets with his jumpers and spacing of the floor. Aldridge has 89 points in two games this series and Houston just seems to have no answer for the guy who is the best all around power forward in the game today.
