Dwight Howard

  1. Hawks’ Pachulia, Magic’s Richardson both suspended for Game 4

    Apr 23, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The only real question was would it be one game or two. The answer is one. The league announced a one-game suspension for both Zaza Pachulia of Atlanta and Jason Richardson of Orlando for their scuffle in the fourth quarter of Game 3 Wednesday. Both will sit out Game 4 Sunday. The whole thing started…

  2. Orlando’s mid-season trade not reason for trouble (they were bad before)

    Apr 23, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Magic head coach Van Gundy reacts during Game 3 of their NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference basketball game against Hawks in Atlanta

    Orlando is in trouble. They are down 2-1 to the Atlanta Hawks, a team that through the regular season and into the playoffs has shown its matchup advantages are hard for Orlando to overcome. Now the Magic face a virtual must-win Game 4 and likely will have to do it without Jason Richardson, who probably…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Hawks take series lead in crazy game

    Apr 23, 2011, 12:44 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Orlando Magic are in some serious trouble against a team that gave up more points than it scored in the regular season. Game 3 could have gone either way, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Magic are a team built around Dwight Howard and versatile shooters, and the versatile shooters have failed…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Maybe the Hawks can use more Horford in Game 3

    Apr 22, 2011, 4:33 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Two

    Now the Orlando/Atlanta series moves on to Game 3 on a neutral court… wait, it’s in Atlanta? Interesting. We’ll see if anyone notices. Seriously, the Hawks fans will be into it if the Hawks are into it. And in it. Whether the Hawks are in it may depend in part on how much run Al…

    Apr 20, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    And the campaign has begun. Well, really the campaign to keep Dwight Howard with the Orlando Magic began when Otis Smith made sweeping changes looking to upgrade the Magic roster this season by bringing in Hedo Turkoglu and Gilbert Arenas. Seeing how well that worked, some Magic fans have launched a Web Site — StayDwight.com…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Magic defense edges out Hawks in Game 2

    Apr 20, 2011, 12:59 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Two

    The Orlando Magic still haven’t figured out how to get consistent offensive production out of their perimeter players, but they made one drastic improvement from Game 1 to Game 2: the Magic defense is now in full effect. Atlanta played a competitive game by putting up a strong defensive front of their own and hitting…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta out to prove Game 1 wasn’t a fluke

    Apr 19, 2011, 5:47 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Josh Smith, Kirk Hinrich

    The conventional wisdom about Game 1 of this series misses the point. As our own Matt Moore pointed out, what Atlanta did to the Magic was what teams used to do to Michael Jordan, what teams have tried to do to Steve Nash in recent years — let him score, make him a shooter. Don’t…

  8. Orlando loss casts shadow over Dwight Howard’s future

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Magic fans don’t want to draw the line connecting the dots. You can’t blame them. But the loss to Atlanta seemed to move those dots toward being in a straight line. And if things don’t change Dwight Howard could connect them himself and devastate the Orlando franchise. The starting point is here: every time Dwight…

  9. Dwight Howard named Defensive Player of Year. Again.

    Apr 18, 2011, 1:33 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard, right, blocks a shot by Atlanta Hawks' Etan Thomas (36) during the first half of Game 1 of a first-round NBA playoff basketball series in Orlando, Fla

    UPDATE 1:33 pm: It’s official, Dwight Howard has a three-peat as the NBA Defensive Player of the Year. “I want to thank my teammates for allowing their men to get to the basket again, forcing me to block shots and pick up fouls, and sometimes technical fouls,” Howard joked at the press conference. Or half…

    Screen shot 2011-04-16 at 11.21.47 PM

    One couldn’t possibly expect, ask, or demand more of Dwight Howard than the Magic center gave in Game 1, and yet the Atlanta Hawks were somehow still able to take an early series lead with an efficient opening salvo. Atlanta is clearly equipped to compete in this series, and though they took a brutal 46-point,…

  11. Video: Dwight Howard’s ally-opp on Jrue Holiday’s head

    Apr 12, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Dwight Howard said as he started to take off he told Jrue Holiday not to jump. Their both Adidas guys, Howard didn’t want to embarrass him. Howard was going to throw down a monster dunk and he knew it. All credit to Holiday for trying, for getting back on defense and making the effort to…

  12. Bulls barely, and we mean barely edge Magic without Dwight Howard

    Apr 10, 2011, 4:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Orlando Magic

    Bulls 102 Magic 99. This was a fantastic ballgame that will be overshadowed by narratives about the MVP. The questions will be about how the Magic nearly beat the Bulls with Dwight Howard spending a one-game suspension for hitting 18 techs, and what that says about Howard’s MVP candidacy. The other side will respond with…

  13. Dwight Howard’s technical upheld, suspended for Sunday

    Apr 7, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    So that big Bull against Magic game for Sunday just got a lot less interesting. Dwight Howard’s technical for throwing the ball Wednesday after being called for a foul for shooting slow free throws has been upheld by the league. He is suspended from Sunday’s game because this is his 18th technical this season. Players…

  14. Dwight Howard gets technical (and suspension) for slow free throws

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard likely will be suspended for Sunday’s big showdown game against the Chicago Bulls because he takes to long with his free throws. Seriously. Let me explain. First, Howard already has 17 technical fouls this season. For the 16th and every other one after it a player gets a suspension. Howard has served one…

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    “Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands!” —J.M. Barrie, from The Adventures of Peter Pan. Apparently, the Orlando Magic work on the same principles as fictional fairies like Tinkerbell. They’ll die if you don’t believe in them. There’s plenty of cynicism around the Orlando Magic and…

  16. Dwight Howard’s jump shot is solid, thank you very much

    Apr 5, 2011, 8:40 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard’s game has evolved. There was a time when it was fair to criticize him for having nothing but power moves. Those days are gone. Now Howard has a bag of tricks to reach into and it shows as he uses a team high 27.1 percent of the possessions but still has a high…

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard is a bit of a perfectionist, and this Magic team frustrates him. Read into that whatever you want about his future. Nenad Kristic says the injury and time away was tough for him. Tom Sanders was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame yesterday. If you just said “who?” then read this. The…

  18. Otis Smith will not consider trading Dwight Howard, no matter what

    Apr 2, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    Otis Smith talked to the Orlando Sentinel Friday night and gave what could commonly be considered the GM’s equivalent of “famous last words.” Dwight Howard‘s  a free agent in 2012. He’s made it pretty clear he’s going to enter free agency, while playing the oh-so-tactful play of “I love Orlando, I just want to win…

    Ron Artest Parade

    Ron Artest, who once jumped into the stands and got suspended for a full season, and Dwight Howard, who currently leads the league in technical fouls, are both finalists for the Walter J. Kennedy Citizenship award. The award is given each year to an NBA figure who shows “outstanding service and dedication to the community.”…

  20. Dwight Howard says Magic are tired, need some days off

    Mar 31, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Boston is slumping as they try to get guys healthy for the playoffs. San Antonio has lost four straight as guys sit trying to get healthy and rested for the playoffs. Dwight Howard looked around the Orlando locker room after his team lost to Atlanta Wednesday and told the Orlando Sentinel maybe there is something…

    What you missed while eating out of your Death Star cookie jar… Orlando knocking off the Suns was our Game of the Night. Hawks 85, Magic 82: This was a preview of a first round playoff matchup in the east (Orlando is locked in at the four seed, Atlanta the five). These two teams met…

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard caved — he had his beard trimmed. He was the first Magic player to do so since they decided to grow playoff beards as a team. Fortunately for all of us, Stan Van Gundy is not playing along. If — really, when at this point — the Kings move to Anaheim, the Lakers…

    Shaquille O’Neal has only appeared in 36 games for the Celtics this season, and hasn’t appeared in any since Feb. 1. But Boston didn’t add Shaq for the regular season, they added him with the hope that he’ll provide some size and depth at the center position for what the team hopes will be another…

  24. Derrick Rose will win MVP. There are better choices.

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Stan Van Gundy is right — Derrick Rose is going to win the MVP award this year. He has everybody including Michael Jordan’s endorsement. Influential media members are lining up behind him. The question is: Does he deserve it? Or, more accurately, do others deserve it more? You can make a good argument for Rose…

  25. Orlando Magic growing NHL-style playoff beards

    Mar 24, 2011, 10:05 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Playoff beards are an NHL tradition — you let it go as long as your team stays alive. So by the finals the guys look like Canadians who opted to be lumberjacks rather than hockey players (oh he’s a lumberjack and he’s okay, he sleeps all night and he works all day). Now Orlando is…
