Dwight Howard isn’t known for his skills on offense. It basically consists of being able to get the ball low on the block and dunking or performing the Mikan Drill. Howard is so bad as a shooter that he actually lost a FT and 3pt-shooting contest to the mascot for the Los Angeles Kings. Yes, a hockey mascot. But last night, Howard actually connected on his second three-pointer of his career.
The late triple in the Lakers win over the visiting Nuggets helped the team tie a franchise-record 17 in one game. The Mike D’Anonti offense is really starting to take shape. But don’t expect Dwight to be hanging around the arc the rest of this season.

Jameer Nelson, who’s a game-time decision (tendinitis) vs. the Lakers, was asked at this morning’s shootaround what it will be like to see former teammate Dwight Howard play for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight.

1: When it rains, it pours
It was a rough 48 hours for the Nuggets. First was the wild finish in Golden State that ended with Andre iguodala's shot falling after the buzzer. The next night was an absolute offensive onslaught from the Lakers. It is hard out there for a Nugget...
Sunday is going to be a weird day for Magic fans.
In one sense it will be extremely cathartic -- the object of hatred for much of the past nine months will be front and center on the TV screen. Venom can be unleashed on Twitter and schadenfreude (taking pleasure in other people's pain) can be expressed in a very real manner. Let's not even go into the feelings should...
By the time Dwight Howard stepped back and oh-so-coolly hit just the second 3-pointer of his entire career in the closing seconds, it didn't even seem weird to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Orlando is playing better than expected, sitting at 5-10...
