Either way, the Rockets are just focusing on beating them and moving on to round two. “He’s the enemy,” Dwight Howard said of Parsons. “We’re still going to be friends and we’re still going to kick it in the summer, but right now, him and his team are trying to end our season. And that’s our mentality – we’re not going to let anybody end our season, so we’ve got to go out there and dominate from the first game and send a message.” “It’s not about Chandler,” James Harden said. “It’s about trying to win. The last couple of years I’ve been here, I’ve been (knocked) out the first round, so it’s bigger than one person.” CBS Local

Dwight Howard said he hopes he can have a career as long as the one his Wednesday night opponent — Tim Duncan — has had in San Antonio. Duncan, 38, has played 17 years in the NBA and is still starting for the Spurs and is considered to be one of the best big men in the league. “That’s always been my goal- to play 20 years in the league so I think it can be done,” said Howard, who is in his 11th NBA season. “It would be great. Tim (Duncan) is still playing great basketball. He has migrated to different spots on the floor instead of just the post.” Houston Chronicle

A young center with All-Star potential, Nik Vucevic knows enough Magic history to realize the franchise's two best big men left town and broke hearts. Vucevic, 24, is determined not to follow the footsteps of Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard out of Orlando. "Yeah, I'm here for the long haul. I hope to stay here my whole career," he told me. "I love it here. I really love the city. I've improved here a lot as a player. I'd love to stay for a long, long time and make something special happen. "If it takes years, it takes years … I ain't going anywhere." Orlando Sentinel
