Dwight is about to return to Orlando, as a Clippers fan would love to see Lakers miss the playoffs and I hope the Magic win tonight. Looking forward to the crowd's reaction tonight.
I believe there will be a lot of boo's and it will have an impact on Howard's game. He just isn't the type of person to shrug off hatred.
No offense but no. Emotionally it'll probably get him a bit but physically and professionally what are boos going to do? Throw off his freethrows? His role on this team is to rebound and be a defensive anchor. Not to mention orlando is a terrible team
Did he get boo'ed ?
Yea he got boo'd and it just keeps going, but he's embracing it and even joining in on the boos. Had a good 1st half with 19pts, 1orbs, 2blks, 2assts.... but he went 9/19 at the free throw line. The Lakers have been in control for the most part nut are up only 4. Kobe's 1/7 and hasnt turned up yet. The problem has been Tobias Harris, he had a 15 and 10 in the first half.
2 offensive rebounds in the first half* to go along with 8 defensive rebounds.
Kind of embarassing IMO, to me he comes off as childish, but maybe I'm just bias and will always look at him negativley after what happend.
35 free throw attempts for howard....
Howard has 39 points on 39 free throws...easily a 50 point game if he could've made a few more
He just played his best game of the season, hands down.. If he can consistantly perform like this, combined with Gasol returns, they could make a few teams sweat.
He's been playing well lately. It seems he's getting in good rhythm.
