Good game in defense. But I think we don't look at him too much in 2nd half though.

Dwight still not himself. Can tell on the dunks. When he can lift again and train again he'll only be better and more consistent.

I'm super happy with the win and Dwight's effort... But he still has this lethargic face, or like he's still pissed or unhappy about something....

He looked fine to me. I think he was just frustrated because of the bull**** calls.

Not a lot of energy out of Howard out there..... especially since he's was only in the game for 29 minutes.

In the 4th we moved the ball great and found open players in the middle of the floor when he wasn't clogging the lane. In fact it was after his 5th foul that we separated a little from OKC.....

Great to win a game where he didn't have a great game. Maybe we don't need him to be the leading scorer after all....

His energy was fine from the outset, but he got frustrated by the foul trouble.

I thought he did fine considering everything.

He looked fine to me as well, as realdeal said if it was anything it was probably the fouls, guy was in foul trouble most of the 2nd half. As far as how involved he was in the offense I don't really care and he shouldn't either if we're winning and if Pau is going to be this effective (16 points, 7-10 shooting)

Dwight really got taken out of the game by the refs IMO. He played well despite that.

And also his free throw shooting was pathetic. He can't let that happen. He just can't have games like that, especially against good teams.

Between him and Pau they went 4/16.

I want to see more energy from Howard, plain and simple. He is loafing around instead of running hard and pressuring on defense. His hands are active on D but his feet aren't as active as they should be.

I don't even care about the offense, just show me more energy on the floor.

And FTs...well thats another story. I don't want to break my monitor right now so I will do that when the time is appropiate.

Dwight Howard played a huge role in westbrooks bad shooting. He stepped out on screens beautifully. Pau did pretty well as well.

Dwight did well today, FTs were embarassing and screens were useless but defensively he was active today. Really changed the game.

Please hit at least half of your FTs. That's all. Keep playing good D.

He's still adjusting to being a Laker. When you play on a different team, you have this myth that the Lakers get all the calls. But when you are a Laker, that myth gets busted pretty fast. I bet he never got as few calls as he does this year.

He really needs to hit at least half of his free throws, it was embarrassing how many he missed. I did like the defense he's been playing however, and his energy has been great as well.

In spite of his superb defense, Dwight is really frustrating to watch for me. From the absurdly bad post game, getting stripped, dumb fouls, constant slip screens, to the abysmal free throw shooting.
