I am very pleased with his effort tonight. OK, he's rusty, his FT shooting sucks and he gets stripped a lot. But still. Amazing impact right away on both ends of the floor.

The way he runs the floor he puts the opposition in foul trouble real fast, Metta and Nash got some early open looks just from Dwight running in the middle of the floor, really amazing to see

And that Kobe to Dwight pick and roll alley oop was a thing of beauty

He was definitely rusty, but he had a great game. His defensive presence was definitely noticed as well as his rebounding. Lets just work on those FTs Dwight, I'm sure Nash will show you a thing or two.

Dwight Howard played well, got a double, double in his first return game, hope he can stayed health for a long long time for us,

Good game. As others have said, he was rusty. He'll improve which is scary for the other teams in the league. He needs time to gel as do the other starters with one another.

Agreed, if Bynum posted 19/12 and 4 blks we'd be saying "DWIGHT WHO? OMGZ BYNUM > HOWARD"

But for Howard? Business as usual. Well actually, it's his first game back from major back surgery. :man10:

Dwight looks pretty good considering that he came off back surgery and didn't work out all summer. He should be back in his usual shape by December.

Lots of turnovers tonight (team). Howard looked really good considering he's never played with these guys before. Come January, watch out!

Crazy how his combination of size and speed allows him to basically cover two guys on the floor at the same time.

Next step is just getting his timing back and gelling with the rest of the starters.

Rusty and still got 19pts 12reb 4blk this guy is amazing and also changed a lot of shots that don't show up in the stat sheet. This is all coming from surgery in April, the man is special.

a ton of no calls by the refs on dwight. def was getting held all game and i feel they were really happy with the whistle with 3 seconds and offensive fouls.

i have a feeling laker fans are gunna be very frustrated with refs this season on dwight. dwight and metta were frustrated with the refs for sure this game

Dwight answering multiple questions on his back with, “it’s pretty good.” Said it feels fine even after the fall & 33 minutes of play.


I think Dwight will play close to 40 minutes in regular season...

Remember, Mike Brown is our coach. 48 minutes for Dwight. 40+ for Nash, Kobe, and Gasol. :man6:
