Dwight Howard wrote:On his team's supposed lack of height …
We know how to play basketball. Me and Chris Bosh are the same height. I'm not the tallest person, so I'm not really worried about height being a factor. We all know how to play basketball and we play it well.

On defending the pick-and-roll …
That's one of the hardest plays to guard in the NBA and overseas. Once you practice against it enough and you run the different schemes, you become good at it.

On playing against zone or man-to-man …
Other teams will do both, but we're gonna be ready for it. We have a great coaching staff that does a great job of preparing us.

On the difference between this team and the 2006 squad …
We've been playing together longer. That's the biggest thing. We have a lot of confidence in each other.

On Friday's win over Canada …
I think we did a pretty good job, but there's a lot of things we still have to work on, a lot of small things that we have to get better on because those are the things that make the difference.

On Michael Redd's performance against Canada …
Michael was hot, but he's always hot. Any time he can get his shot off, he's money. He did an excellent job of shooting the ball.
