Last night's 4th quarter run was with Dwight anchoring the defense again...I love what he brings...it's to bad he can only do it in spurts....he gives it his all for 15-17 minutes and then I guess he's spent.

Him acting a fool and getting 3 fouls in the 4th put us in the bonus right away and put us in a rough spot.

Not sure all those were fouls but I agree he needs to slow down a bit on the physicality.

Yeah, the refs let him play with way more physicality in the first half and then called him for a few touch fouls in the 4th. He still needs to be able to adjust a bit more quickly but that has to be extremely frustrating as a player. He did do a great job of not picking up a T though after his 6th because you could tell he was holding back and was pissed.

Overall, i'm not mad at all as the rest of the team was clearly still feeding off his high two way energy which was very much needed in that 4th before we went on that final run.

Nothing new with Howard and his selfish antics.

Love his energy and physicality at times, but he just can’t control himself even after all these years.

We lose tonight in Detroit without Dwight’s 2 threes

Can 2021-22 be any more strange?

Kudos to DH!
He gave us some solid minutes tonight and even entertained us all by going 2-2 from deep.
    Dwight Howard, the NBA's most unlikely stretch 5!

There is no reason why he is getting 13MPG, he should be getting 20MPG, he’s still good enough to feast when he comes off the bench.

Dwight is a shell of the older he was during the 2020 championship. He’s lost a lot of athleticism since then. He doesn’t bring that energy off the bench he used to bring and he isn’t dominant on the glass anymore. Idk what’s going on. I hope he’s saving it for the playoffs

He was a shell last year. Just less of one than Deandre Jordan.

His energy and rebounding were huge for us and he was catching lobs in 2020. He can barely get off the floor now and fumbles every rebound

Clearly we don't need a stretch 5, we have one in Howard.

I agree with you IG...he should play 20 minutes. I think he gets frustrated when he completely seals his man under the basket and they don't hit him...it was clear at least 2x yesterday. THT had him wide open under the basket but decides to brick a 3...and Monk drives to the whole, has him wide open and throws a baseline pass for a turn over...I don't get it...Bron and Russ found him twice when he was open....It seems like they just ignore him. I don't get it.

Dwight's career arc keeps getting weirder and weirder

Dwight Howard has as many made threes this season (5) as Ben Simmons does in his entire NBA career.


We finally got our stretch 5!

Yep, definitely. If he can do it, why not.

Dwight should really be starting. Vogel is really stubborn with the sub patterns and how he uses the guy.

This is why i went as far back as the regular season 2019-2020 to say Dwight should start and get big minutes and Shaqtin McGee should only play if Dwight got in foul trouble. And then Vogel finally caught on during the playoffs.

Same thing here and its even more obvious that DeAndre Jordan should never play and only play if Dwight and/or AD are out. Piece of trash Jordan shouldnt PLAY.

Dwight has the instincts and bball intelligence (especially on defense) that Jordan and Shaqtin just dont have. Dwight's only issue is foul trouble

Vogel made all the right adjustments in the playoffs. Dwight started because of Jokic, and if we play Denver again, he would be playing heavy minutes as well.
