Dwight Howard

  1. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  2. Sixers tie NBA record with 26th consecutive loss, this one at hands of Rockets

    Mar 27, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

  3. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

  4. Jeanie Buss says she ‘still doesn’t understand’ why Dwight Howard left the Lakers

    Mar 20, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Lakers president and co-owner Jeanie Buss says she still doesn’t understand why Dwight Howard left the Lakers in free agency. Really? Because everyone else does.

  5. Dwight Howard had a cyst removed from ankle, out Thursday

    Mar 20, 2014, 1:45 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s nothing serious but he is going to miss at least a game.

  6. Dwight Howard likely out for Rockets Thursday due to ankle injury

    Mar 19, 2014, 3:38 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    Dwight Howard has been healthy this season, and with that played like the guy the Lakers thought they were getting a year ago. Houston has looked good and improving with him in the paint. But he was out Monday night against Utah with an ankle strain suffered against Miami on Sunday. Now he is going…

  7. Anthony Davis’ 40-20 game by the numbers

    Mar 17, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Celtics Pelicans Basketball

    The 2012 draft already looks like it will go down as one of the NBA’s stronger ones ever. Andre Drummond is incredibly promising. Damian Lillard won Rookie of the Year and is even better this season. But there’s no doubt, if the draft were re-done, Anthony Davis would remain the No. 1 pick. Days like…

  8. Heat execute in final minutes, Rockets still learning, fall in Miami

    Mar 16, 2014, 7:41 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

    Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…

  9. LeBron takes no-look pass from Wade, goes up and over Dwight Howard for the slam (VIDEO)

    Heat Mavericks

    LeBron takes a nice pass from Wade and elevates over Dwight Howard for the vicious first quarter slam.

  10. Jarrett Jacks wants sleeved jerseys tailored specifically for individual players

    Mar 16, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Jarrett Jack believes custom fitting players with the sleeved jerseys would reduce the complaints. But he still doesn’t like the way they look, regardless of how they do or do not impact performance. “We’re like the Beach Police,” Jack said.

  11. Report: Joakim Noah to receive $500K bonus if he’s named to All-NBA first team

    Mar 15, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    Joakim Noah receives a $500K bonus if he’s named to the All-NBA first team. Does he have a shot?

  12. Report: Houston Rockets to pursue Carmelo Anthony this summer

    Mar 14, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    At a panel during the Sloan Conference, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers described the arduous process of acquiring Andre Iguodala. The Warriors had no cap room last summer, so Myers faced a two-sided task to land the free agent. Not only did he negotiate with Iguodala, Myers discussed trades with other teams to…

  13. Rockets don’t bring the energy, so Bulls bring the pain in securing a 24-point blowout victory

    Mar 13, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    The Rockets came into Thursday night’s contest in Chicago with the league’s best record since Jan. 1, a 23-7 mark that included a record of 15-3 over the team’s last 18 games. But it’s difficult to bring the necessary energy on a nightly basis, and especially against a fiery Bulls team playing at home, not…

  14. Kevin McHale, who coaches Dwight Howard, says Joakim Noah is the Defensive Player of the Year

    Mar 13, 2014, 7:03 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Rockets are in Chicago to face the Bulls in a nationally televised contest on Thursday, and Houston head coach Kevin McHale paid the highest of compliments to the best active player on the opposing team, Joakim Noah. That part wasn’t unusual, as head coaches will often times dole out honest and well-deserved praise to…

  15. Dwight Howard with pass to wide open Omer Asik… on the bench (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2014, 12:32 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Houston Rockets

    To be fair Omer Asik was wide open, he just was on the bench at the time when Dwight Howard hit him with a pass.

  16. Extra Pass: Golden State Warriors defending at historically high level

    Mar 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Jermaine O'Neal, Joakim Noah, Andrew Bogut

    BOSTON – Game-planning for the Golden State last season, the Phoenix Suns wrote “Finesse” on their whiteboard. “Be physical with them, and they tend to back away,” said Jermaine O’Neal, who played for Phoenix last year. Now a Warrior, O’Neal didn’t hesitate to share the observation of their defense with his new teammates. “I told…

  17. Dwight Howard appreciates Magic’s tribute video, claims to understand booing from fans

    Mar 6, 2014, 8:01 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard returned to Orlando as a member of the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, and as part of the Magic’s 25th anniversary season, they played a video tribute to Howard between the first and second periods. Plenty of fans let their disapproval be heard, and boos rained down on Howard as the video began. Howard…

  18. Chandler Parsons would have booed Dwight Howard, too

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Houston Rockets

    The Orlando Magic showed their Dwight Howard tribute video, and as expected, fans booed (though not as thoroughly as I would have hoped during the entire video). Presumably, Chandler Parsons, now Howard’s teammate with the Houston Rockets, was not among the jeerers. But in a different time and place, he could have been. Jonathan Feigen…

  19. Report: Joakim Noah recruiting Carmelo Anthony to Chicago Bulls

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:36 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Joakim Noah, Carmelo Anthony

    Reports Carmelo Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls this offseason are nothing new. Even Melo has stoked the flames of the rumors. But most published work on the subject has focused on where Melo desires to play. Sure, by trading Luol Deng for Andrew Bynum and draft picks, the Bulls signaled a greater interest…

  20. Udonis Haslem told Patrick Beverley to stop talking trash at halftime of Heat-Rockets

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:55 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets' Beverley smiles after being called for a foul while playing Oklahoma City Thunder in their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff in Oklahoma

    Patrick Beverley gained some national attention when his aggressive play resulted in an injury to the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the first round of last year’s playoffs. There was nothing wrong with Beverley’s play, but it branded him as an agitator of sorts. He’s since lived up to that label, being one of the more…

  21. Orlando Magic give video tribute to Dwight Howard

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:51 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The Magic have been playing tribute videos for every former player that returned to play against them this season, as part of the organization’s 25th anniversary celebration. It’s a bit trickier where Dwight Howard is concerned, obviously, considering both his stature as one of the franchise’s all-time greats as well as the messy way things…

  22. Dwight Howard’s seven lost siblings the source of his fun-loving attitude

    Mar 5, 2014, 12:35 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Houston Rockets

    CSN Houston premiered “The Dwight Howard Show,” a reality show featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the Houston Rockets center. Early in the first episode, his explanation for his attitude caught my eye: I enjoy life. For those of you who don’t know this, my mom lost seven kids. Seven! That’s a lot of kids. And I…

  23. Orlando Magic to honor Dwight Howard

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:45 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Houston Rockets

    That was the reaction the last time Dwight Howard returned to Orlando. Turn down your speakers. The boos are loud. And for good reason. Howard made his split with the Magic extremely messy. I have nothing against Howard leaving Orlando, but I’m also not a Magic fan. Part of the fan game is getting illogically…

  24. Tuesday night NBA grades: Westbrook with a triple-double in 21 minutes

    Mar 5, 2014, 3:09 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem if you prefer) and The Roots sing “Let It Go”… Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder. Tell me again how this team is better off without him? Westbrook had a triple double — 13 points, 10 rebounds…

  25. LeBron’s painful final seconds in Houston: elbow to face, missed shot to tie

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    LeBron James found the final seconds of Miami’s loss to Houston painful. It was a complete contrast with just the night before. First on Tuesday night there was the play above — with 15 seconds left in the game and the Rockets up three James Harden tried to make an ill-advised pass ahead to Dwight…
