Howard had 26 points and 13 rebounds, including a key block at the end of regulation and a crucial offensive rebound in overtime, in the Hornets’ 129-124 victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. The Hornets improved to 7-2 at home. But they’re still below .500 overall because of a 1-7 road record. “We love playing at home,” Howard said. “Thank you, Charlotte. That energy in the building is what keeps us going. But now we need that same energy on the road.”
Clint Capela is sort of the anti-Dwight Howard. He has no problem with an offensive role that consists primarily of running the floor, setting screens, rolling hard to the rim and rebounding. He understands the value of the vertical spacing he provides. And you’ll certainly never hear Capela complain about a lack of post touches. “Nah, that’s not his personality,” says Rockets assistant coach Roy Rogers, who works with Houston’s big men. “Clint’s a team-first guy. He understands his role on the team, and he accepts his role. He’s excited about his role.”
