The Houston Rockets went into US Airways Center Sunday night and left with a 115-112 victory over the Phoenix Suns. Dwight Howard led the way for Houston with 25 points, nine rebounds, and two blocked shots.
Midway through the second quarter, Howard rolled to the basket after setting a pick for Patrick Beverley and finished an alley-oop with his left hand. The Rockets’ Twitter account thought the play was one for the ages. The Suns, however, weren’t too impressed.

The win improved Houston’s record to 38-18 on the season — good for third in the Western Conference. Barring an epic collapse, it would appear the Rockets are well on their way to securing a playoff spot and potentially home court advantage in the first round.
Looks like there is a good chance we could see more of this from Dwight in the postseason.
