Dwight Howard

  1. Dwight Howard not suspended for foul on Pierce. That's fair.

    May 19, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard gave a good playoff foul to Paul Pierce in the second quarter of last night’s game. A hard foul that caught Pierce’s head. He got a “flagrant one” for that — meaning Pierce got his free throws and the Celtics got the ball out of bounds. But that will be the extent of…

  2. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 2: The Celtics are feeling pretty good right now

    May 19, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    The Celtics have been here before. And they sound like it. There isn’t a lot of excitement or “wow, can’t believe we won that one” going on here. They are veterans, they are professionals and they are moving forward. The Magic are saying the right things, too. Not that it’s going to help.  

  3. Boston Celtics place foot to the throat, take 2-0 lead over Magic in Orlando

    May 18, 2010, 11:36 PM EDT

    Getcha brooms ready. Paul Pierce said last year while the Lakers were rolling the Magic in the Finals that the Celtics were Rottweilers and the Magic were poodles. So far the Celtics have bit the Magic in the throat and in Game 2 they shook the life out of them. But don’t misunderstand, the Magic…

  4. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 2, halftime: Celtics 53, Magic 51

    May 18, 2010, 10:23 PM EDT

    The Magic were much more aggressive getting Dwight Howard open. The Celtics matched that, being more aggressive attacking the rim. The result was an offensive half from two defensive teams that ended with the Celtics up two, 53-51 at the break. Paul Pierce led all scorers with 22 as he could not seem to miss,…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Magic v. Celtics Game 2: Orlando can't just be different, they have to be better

    May 18, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    The Magic made a ridiculous comeback to make the finale of Game of the Eastern Conference Finals more competitive than the bulk of the game, but Orlando still dropped home court advantage and played anything but an impressive game. A Magic team that had been completely untouchable in the playoffs prior to this series now…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: The last word

    May 17, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    It’s time for the last word on Game 1 between Boston and we are giving it to the players and coaches. Well, this isn’t the last word from us, who are we kidding? There will be some more breakdowns and analysis later. But these guys should get their say.  

  7. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: Where the Magic couldn't score inside or out

    May 16, 2010, 7:29 PM EDT

    Magics fans couldn’t help but ask: Who were those guys? What happened to the Magic that steamrolled an Atlanta team (who finished with a better record than Boston)? They recognize the guys from the fourth quarter comeback, but that was not enough. Now the Magic are in a 1-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals.…

  8. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Everything coming up Celtic Green

    May 16, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    If they keep playing like this, who’s going to stop the Boston Celtics? Certainly not the Orlando Magic, who walked into Game 1 against the Celtics as heavy favorites, having swept their first two series of the playoffs only to get blownout for thrre quarters, make a furious comeback that came up short, and eventually…

  9. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1 Halftime: Celtic defense smothering all light from universe

    May 16, 2010, 4:34 PM EDT

    The Celtics lead 41-32 at the half of Game 1 behind a defensive performance that was stunning. If you’re going to write a book on playing championship level defense, you want to start by looking at what the Celtics did for a long stretch from the opening tip until about the seven minute mark of…

  10. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: Celtics have a Magic reason to close out

    May 13, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    The Boston Celtics believe they’re the best team in basketball. That doesn’t really make them any different than any of the other teams left in the playoffs, save the Phoenix Suns (The Phoenix Suns: our NBA Playoffs Mickey and Mallory). But one thing they do know in the back of their heads is that a…

  11. Stan Van Gundy, Magic players talk sweep

    May 11, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    It looked easy, but Stan Van Gundy said it wasn’t as easy as it looked, sweeping the Atlanta Hawks. Although, I think he was just being polite.  

  12. NBA Playoffs, Magic Hawks Game 3: Magic dominate Hawks, remain undefeated

    May 8, 2010, 8:31 PM EDT

    Well, so much for Atlanta turning into a completely different team on their home floor. The Hawks were 19-22 on the road this season and 34-7 at home, so it wasn’t completely unreasonable to expect them to be more competitive on Saturday than they were in the first two games of the series. Unfortunately for…

  13. NBA Playoffs, Magic Hawks Game 2: Magic overpower Hawks in second half to take 2-0 lead

    May 7, 2010, 2:12 AM EDT

    Surprisingly enough, the Atlanta Hawks were competitive for much of game two. They were able to move the ball while limiting mistakes, actually managed to get to the rim and the line with some consistency, and scored almost 100 points against the Magic’s defense. They made six of their 11 three-point attempts. They shot 97% on their…

  14. Kevin Durant joins the big time, named to All-NBA First Team

    May 6, 2010, 2:43 PM EDT

    This season at a Clippers/Thunder game, my media row seat was next to two advanced scouts checking out the Thunder for upcoming games for their teams. Three times during the game, Kevin Durant did something that had these scouts — jaded guys who have seen more basketball than you and I ever will — look…

  15. As per usual, strange things are afoot in the voting for the All-Defensive teams

    May 5, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Award voting will never be a perfect process, if only because there are so many different perspectives involved. That said, selections to the All-Defense first and second teams provide particularly unique challenges, as voters are not only asked to weigh certain contributions (scoring, playmaking, etc.) against others (defense, leadership, etc.) as they are in MVP…

  16. NBA All-Defense Team filled with playoff participants. Coincidence?

    May 5, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Defense wins championships. Or, at least you gets you into the playoffs. That’s the one easy takeaway from the announcement of the NBA All-Defensive teams. There are no shocks on here, everyone belongs, which is what you get when the coaches vote and not media members paid by teams who have their own agendas. Of…

  17. Orlando's rout of the Hawks summed up in 14 seconds

    May 5, 2010, 9:16 AM EDT

    This little video pretty well says it all. Josh Smith starts driving the lane for what is normally a monster dunk, but Dwight Howard is there so he goes with the floater. Howard skies and gets away with goaltending (that ball was on its way down). While Josh Smith is flapping his arms and moaning…

  18. Andrew Bynum hasn't got time for the pain, but will have summer surgery

    May 3, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    Spring is here – humming birds are buzzing, flowers are blooming, birds are migrating to their summer homes, Andrew Bynum is injured. Every time Bynum makes a play right now, you can see him grimace a little. He will likely need off-season knee surgery to fix a tear in the lateral meniscus of his right…

  19. NBA MVP: LeBron being denied unanimous win means it's time for a change

    May 2, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    Well, the worst kept secret of the year is out, and LeBron has his second MVP award. We could wax on here about his season, the dominant play from baseline to baseline, the chasedown blocks, the versatility, the improved shooting numbers across the floor, the physical prowess, the, well, everything. LeBron James is the best…

  20. Media members need not be protected, accountability in award voting is a must

    Apr 30, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    As in most things related to the NBA, the ultimate goal should be transparency. Transparency in the officiating, especially in a post-Donaghy era. Transparency from the league office in how they deal with specific rulings, punishments, and edicts. Transparency from coaches and general managers, who optimally wouldn’t pretend to be vying for a playoff spot…

  21. Dwight Howard, Stan Van Gundy to talk fouls again

    Apr 29, 2010, 10:31 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard lost his head in the Charlotte series. Sure, there were some borderline calls that went against him, but he didn’t deal with it well. He kept picking up silly fouls, not just accepting some of the banging but retaliating. Then he sat. Then his teammates nicknamed him Foul on You. Watch the video…

  22. Dwight Howard gets $35,000 fine for calling out referees

    Apr 28, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    We told you this was coming. It was obvious. It was just a matter of when. Today. The league announced a $35,000 fine for Dwight Howard for criticizing the referees on his blog. What did he write that was (apparently) worth $35,000? “Ya’ll know that that series against Charlotte drove me crazy. I mean, it…

  23. Kobe Bryant still king of NBA Jersey sales, LeBron is queen, Celtics fans will buy anything.

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, you buy his gear. Admit it. The Lakers sudden defensive stopper topped the sales chart at NBA.com and the NBA Store in Manhattan for the second straight year, according to a league announcement Wednesday. LeBron James was second, because really the NBA is all about LeBron and Kobe…

  24. Dwight Howard enjoys paying fines, complains about refs

    Apr 27, 2010, 9:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard apparently has too much money, what with all those endorsements and all. Time to make a donation. So, he criticized the referees Tuesday on his blog. The quotes from the Orlando Sentinel. “Ya’ll know that that series against Charlotte drove me crazy. I mean, it was almost comical at times how I was…

  25. Dwight Howard may not play, pick up fouls in World Championships

    Apr 27, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    One would think Dwight Howard would be itching to play some international ball right about now — they let the game get physical there, far more pushing and grabbing. None of those silly fouls he keeps picking up in the playoffs. No more cardboard walls around Superman. But apparently not. Howard may be the latest…
