Dwight Howard

  1. Welcome to suspension time: Dwight Howard picks up 16th technical

    Mar 4, 2011, 9:50 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    Take a seat, Dwight Howard. It took exactly one week for Dwight Howard to pick up his 16th technical — which means an automatic one game suspension. The league will review it but I’d sit Howard from your fantasy team Monday night when they take on the Portland if I were you. Howard picked up…

  2. Bosh even less clutch than LeBron as Magic finish huge comeback over Heat

    Mar 4, 2011, 12:12 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    I don’t know about you, but I’m not getting fooled again. I’m done, I’m through. I will no longer be surprised when the Miami Heat completely collapse against a good team, no matter how large the lead. It’s over. It cannot possibly be worse than allowing the Orlando Magic to stage a 24-point comeback including…

  3. Billups out Wednesday, day-to-day after that

    Mar 2, 2011, 4:09 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    You had a feeling when a guy as hard core as Chauncey Billups used the word “severe” to describe his thigh bruise Tuesday night, he might not be playing Wednesday. He is officially out for Hornets game Wednesday, the Knicks announced at shootaround, according to a tweet from Alan Hahn of Newsday. He is questionable…

  4. Dwight Howard says he loves Orlando. Right now, anyway.

    Note to Dwight Howard — if you don’t want people speculating about your future, don’t say things like this. We told you yesterday of the reports that the New Jersey Nets planned to go after Howard when he became a free agent, or before. Of course, Howard was asked about that before the game Tuesday…

  5. Video: Shawne Williams with throwdown dunk over Dwight Howard

    Mar 2, 2011, 8:55 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    This dunk would be impressive over Earl Boykins, but over Dwight Howard it is pretty incredible. Shawne Williams gets to the baseline and drives, Howard is not in the best defensive rotation position ever and Williams just goes at him and climbs him and does a classic throwdown. That may have been the best part…

  6. Chauncey Billups leaves game with thigh bruise, could be out Wednesday

    Mar 2, 2011, 2:03 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Carmelo Anthony is nice throw in and all, but it was brilliant of the Knicks to trade for Chauncey Billups — that guy is killing it. Have you seen the Knicks?  Billups has become the brains of the outfit. The Knicks play smarter and more under control with Billups on the court. Bad news is…

  7. Report: Dwight Howard is next target for Nets

    Mar 1, 2011, 5:59 PM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Dwight Howard doesn’t want be part of the 2012 free agent rumor mill, but just when he thought he was out… they pull him back in. We mentioned earlier today that Deron Williams was going to be an eager recruiter for the Nets. The first target will be Dwight Howard, according to the Bergen Record.…

  8. Dwight Howard has a technical problem

    Feb 27, 2011, 1:31 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    Friday night, Dwight Howard picked up technical foul number 15 on the season, helping extend his league lead. Once he gets his “frequent techicals rewards card” stamped one more time gets an automatic one-game suspension. It’s really a matter of when — he has averaged a technical every four games this season and the Magic…

  9. Dwight Howard tells Kevin Durant “not in my house”

    Feb 26, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Winning at the trade deadline is a very different thing than winning your next game. Everything that the Thunder are hoping to get defensively with Kendrick Perkins the Magic already have in Dwight Howard. As evidence, we bring you Dwight shutting down Durant as he drives to the hole Friday night. We have yet to…

  10. Boston’s Danny Ainge learned from history, tries to avoid repeating it

    Feb 24, 2011, 7:50 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    When the Boston Celtics powerhouse teams of the ‘80s wound down, the wheels came off that franchise. There were a lot of factors; Len Bias was a big one. Current Celtics GM Danny Ainge — a member of those teams — has said the Celtics made a mistake trying to ride the wave all the…

  11. Dwight Howard rips Magic after ugly loss to Kings

    Feb 24, 2011, 12:18 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    I’m not sure what the low point of the season will be for the Orlando Magic will be, this may be like the LOST island where every time something impossible happens you think it can’t get crazier. Then you’re proven wrong. And Hurley becomes the voice of reason. But the Wednesday night Magic loss to…

  12. Knicks not contenders with ‘Melo, but they have hope

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:29 AM EST

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. —Shawshank Redemption Today the New York Knicks are not title contenders. They got their man — Carmelo Anthony has been acquired to go with Amar’e Stoudemire. But they are still a long way away from the goal.…

  13. Winderman: ‘Melo trade means Knicks now target Chris Paul, Dwight Howard

    Feb 21, 2011, 11:31 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Don’t even think about exhaling. The trade of Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks does not, finally, put the focus back on the court. Not in today’s NBA, or, more specifically, in tomorrow’s NBA. Think these past months were lessons in abject cruelty in Denver? Then consider what now follows…

  15. Magic play some defense, Lakers miss some shots, Magic cruise

    Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Pau Gasol

    If you came into this game thinking the Lakers win in Boston was a mirage and they still can’t beat elite teams consistently, you watched this game and felt vindicated. You shouldn’t. If you believe that the Orlando Magic are elite despite recent losses to the Bulls, Heat and Celtics (and even Hornets), that they…

  16. Winderman: Lakers shouldn’t trade Bynum now because they’ll need to later

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:19 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Let’s see: You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ size advantage. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ already questionable defense. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum for Carmelo Anthony because Jim Buss loves the guy to pieces. Fair enough. All (except the latter) legitimate points. But here’s another one:…

  17. It was a Clippers game so the best dunk was… Dwight Howard’s? Yup.

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:41 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    The last five seasons, Dwight Howard has led the league in most dunks in a season. This season, Blake Griffin is pushing him. Tuesday night, Howard taught the Clipper rookie a few lessons — about protecting the rim, about the need to diversify his offensive game (although Griffin is getting there fast), about passing out…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dwight Howard makes Blake Griffin look like a rookie

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while campaigning for former Fort Wayne, Ind., mayor Harry Baals to get a building named after him… Magic 101, Clippers 85: The last time these two met the Clippers struggled with the Magic’s defense, and that continued again. The Clippers do not get out in transition, take too much time to initiate…

  19. Dwight Howard is Disney’s Rock Callahan. In cartoon form.

    Orland’s a company town, and that company is Disney. They own a lot of souls there. They may not own Dwight Howard’s but now he’s in league with them. Howard is doing the voice of Rock Callahan in Disney XD’s cartoon “Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil.” If you don’t know what that is, you don’t…

  20. Dwight Howard: “I never said I wanted to leave”

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Already there is speculation about what Dwight Howard is going to do in the summer of 2012, with a report that he wants to find a way to the Knicks or Lakers. Dwight Howard himself is sick of it. He tweeted this: “I never said I wanted to leave stop reading the rumors. It’s really…

  21. Does Dwight Howard already have one eye on the door?

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    This is where we are now. When a player is a couple years away from free agency — as Dwight Howard is in 2012 — there will be stories about how if the team doesn’t win a title he is gone. The stories have started about Chris Paul as well, all in the wake of…

    The big news out of this game is the situation involving Marquis Daniels injury — he had to be taken off the court on a stretcher — which we cover in detail here and will follow going forward. Boston is a title contender in the NBA — that’s never been in question and why was…

  23. Yes, Doc Rivers plans to play his four Celtics All-Stars at once

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Doc Rivers has a strategic advantage come the All-Star Game — Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Four Celtics. Throw those four out at the same time and you have guys familiar with each other and guys who can run more complex offensive sets (or defensive help rotations) than the vanilla ones…

    The Dwight Howard technical count is at 13 heading into tonight’s game against the Heat. When he gets to 16 (and it is when) he gets a fine and a one-game suspension, then gets a game suspension for every other tech after that. How Joy Division songs explain the All-Star starters. Don’t be surprised if…

  25. Brandon Bass could be out a while for Orlando

    Brandon Bass has stepped up this season — especially as a starter since the big trades — and been a solid part of the Magic front line. There aren’t a lot of points in the paint left or rebounds to grab when you play along side Dwight Howard, but Bass had averaged 11.6 points and…
