^^ Yep, outstanding game all around (besides the TO's). Glad to have him back and as I said in the WMC thread - I really liked Howard's demeanor post-game. He was very serious, businesslike. No more goofiness or joking around. Cool. That's the attitude we need moving forward - all biz. :jam2:

22 points, 14 boards, and made 9 of 11 shots. Great all around performance from Dwight.

Very glad to see him back so quick, I just hope his injury is something that cannot be re-aggravated easily, because opposing big men WILL go after his shoulder hard.

Great game coming off a week of not playing saddled with injury. I hope Pau returns in similar fashion (doubt it though)

I think Varajao being out was part of the reason they decided to bring him back a little bit earlier. Zeller isn't going battle anybody inside.

Dwight seemed somber today in his post-game interview. He played a very good game, though. I liked his activity on both ends.

Dwight had a great game today, loved his activity on both ends. Did seem a bit auto-pilot like in his post game interview but he was just probably tired. He was pleased with his touches & the team's defensive effort. One happy man tonight I would say.

On the team’s defensive performance:
“Our defense was great tonight. We just got to keep believing. We got to put some wins together, the biggest thing is that we got to believe, believe in each other.”


We've got to keep some of this optimism as fans too. It's important that we all buckle down together instead of letting this fall break up the team and the fan base. We need to continue to support them and show this team that we're still in as long as they're willing to work hard.

I'm not going to go crazy and expect this regularly because the past 2 teams had crap bigs, but regardless he deserves tons of praise. He's boarding, defending, and he's barely missed a shot, fantastic play.

Sanders got in foul trouble pretty quick... but yeah, he's a very good defensive center.

He only played 24 minutes in part because Dwight took it to him and they needed to try to find more answers (also Dalembert).

Gotta give him his due, the man really took it to the team and he seems to be taking this crap seriously. Not as much jokes, not as much laughing, and a lot more swats.

What I loved was that he had a handful of goal tends. That sends a message to other team "hey I'm going to be swinging so watch out" and that'll change some shots in the future.

Dwight is now playing with purpose, which is great to see. Also, he and Kobe communicate better on both ends of the floor. In any case, D12 had a monstrous game.
