All those people who say Dwight Howard doesn’t have any offensive moves don’t watch him very closely. He’s not as skilled as Hakeem Olajuwon or powerful as Shaq, but he has moves. He’s worked very hard to round out his offensive game and it’s showed.
Take for instance the first basket of Game 5 between the Rockets and Blazers on Wednesday. Dwight took the ball, went hard to the basket on Robin Lopez, and then ball-faked like Hakeem and moved right back up and under for the easy lay in. It was pretty, and it was done with The Dream sitting courtside watching the team.
Dwight went 9-of-15 for 22 points, 14 rebounds and 3 blocks in Houston’s 108-98 win. He’s played very well this series, he just happened to get a tough draw with Portland.
