The way Dwight gets fouled on almost every possession you almost want to see the League tinker with the rules on that sort of thing. Not sure how they could but so often it feels like those fouls are literally just players flailing their arms around wildly because they know that it doesn't really matter if Dwight gets to the line. Feel like they need to be more technicals called in those situations or something. It must suck to play post in today's NBA.

some nice passing in half-court creating good looks.

Now Howard might as usual kill the momentum with airball FTs...but lets hope he makes at least one.

Looks like a completely different team out there. Scared to get too excited, but win or lose this game, if we keep this up I think we will still find a way into the playoffs.

This is all mental from here. It will affect the shots. Dwight has to hit his damn shots.

When you shoot sub 50% from the free throw line, he's fair game.

yeah, but I mean they get ugly-physical......

If Dwight can just work on his Ft's..... this guy can easily be destroying the opposition...

No....

If D12 would make his free throws, it wouldn't happen as much. The onus is on D12, not the league.

Honestly, I would bet money that if Dwight didn't perform any pre-shot free throw rituals, if he literally just got the ball and tossed it up, he would hit his same %

He faced that in Orlando too. That is a large part of why he always has so many Ts and flagrant fouls -- frustration over what the opponents are allowed to do against him in the post.

Maybe Dwight could "tinker" with his game a little. There is a reason he gets played the way he does. If he shot 65% from the line the league wouldn't need to change the rules.....

and it IS kind of BS in the bigger picture, the league rewards guys cutting to the basket all day long, but someone grinding in the post is typically disrespected big time.

If you don't give him a hard foul, he's putting you in the rim.
