McHale on Howard: I’m just so happy Dwight feels good today. I don’t know if he’s BSing me or not but he told me his leg felt really good

Kurt Helin

WATCH: LeBron James, Dwight Howard hit ridiculous one-handed, full-court shots at practice dlvr.it/9Y1MYK

Dwain Price

That length of the court shot LeBron James made blew up Twitter. Dwight Howard just made one a few hours ago after the #Rockets' practice.

Raul Barrigon

Dwight Howard answers LeBron with another one-handed FULL court shot! vine.co/v/eWMKiZpJA1Q

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden called Howard a “beast” last night. Today, Brewer had a different term: "Dwight is a monster right now. It’s fun to watch."

Mark Montieth

I can't wait to get to the gym and start draining fullcourt shots. Can't let LeBron and Dwight show me up. Think I'll do mine left-handed.

Chris Fedor

Why is Dwight Howard a better full-court shooter than free throw shooter? Maybe he should try the backpack thing at the FT line

Dwight Howard matches LeBron's full court shot. Kind of like the ice bucket challenge vine.co/v/eWMKiZpJA1Q (via @Houston Rockets )"

Dwight Howard is better than LeBron James? vine.co/v/eWMKiZpJA1Q

Calvin Watkins

Kevin McHale said Dwight Howard felt good this morning and told him to have a light day. Just shoot free throws.

Jonathan Feigen

After 17 seasons Dirk still shooting long after almost everyone else has left. Just Dirk and Dwight Powell on the floor.

Zach Lowe

You could see at times last night how afraid Chandler was of lob passes to Dwight. Didn't help as much as he probably wanted to.

(Dwight) Howard is throwing people all over the place. And that can't happen in Game 4." -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Daryl Morey

What a tough road win! @James Harden with 42 pts on 24 shots & @Dwight Howard with 26 rebounds came up huge #stayfocused #GoRockets

Jonathan Feigen

McHale on Howard: "Dwight was unreal. He got every rebound and was just a beast down there.' Howard outrebounded the rest of Rockets, 26-20.

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard: "I think we took their best shot and instead of folding, we stayed together and played great defense down the stretch."

Calvin Watkins

James Harden on Dwight Howard: "He was a beast."

Jenny Dial Creech

I just asked Dwight Howard about his rebounds. Harden interrupted (politely) and said, “He’s a beast, he’s a beast."

Tim Cato

Devin Harris on that fourth quarter collision with Dwight that Carlisle singled out: "I don't really remember too much about it."

Tim Cato

Rick Carlisle said the play sticking in his head was to start the fourth where Dwight threw Devin. "The officials have to get that together"

Tas Melas

Houston turning Dwight Howard in to primarily a pick-and-roll man has been overlooked in round 1, but damn, is it effective. Hope it stays.

Jodie Meeks

My dude D Howard lookin like the old Dwight again!! I see u boy!

Tim MacMahon

Tony Jones

Dwight has just been a monster tonight

David Hardisty

Dwight Howard has tied his playoff career-high with 24 rebounds. The guy honestly looks like 2010 Dwight Howard. #MONSTER

David Hardisty

Capela, Smith, Dwight 5-6 at line on Hack-a-Rocket. Rick Carlisle right now is like, "Well, that's all I had. Anyone else got any ideas?"

Calvin Watkins

Now we have Hack a Dwight.

David Hardisty

The Rockets are up seven, but note Dwight Howard is a +21 in this game. Mavs can't do anything with him.

Earl K. Sneed

Dwight Howard with the two-handed slam, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout in a 108-101 hole with 8:56 left. #DALvsHOU

Are Josh Smith and Dwight Howard former AAU teammates?

Amin Elhassan

Lol I feel like if Josh Smith hands Dwight a towel somebody is gonna bring up they were AAU teammates

David Hardisty

Dwight Howard now has 20 rebounds.

Tim Cato

Dirk briefly mimes Dwight's flying elbows after that ball goes out of bounds.

Earl K. Sneed

Dwight Howard then tosses Devin Harris to the floor and Ariza hits a three. Rick Carlisle is not happy at alll. #DALvsHOU

Michael Dugat

Cool. So Dwight can just go shove dudes to the ground for a rebound. Good to know.

Tim MacMahon

Rick Carlisle is heated after Dwight Howard tossed Devin Harris aside to grab his 19th rebound. T could be coming soon.

Earl K. Sneed

Hard collision between Dwight Howard and Devin Harris to open the 4th. Harris has hit the floor like 50 times tonight. #DALvsHOU

Tim MacMahon

Kevin McHale wants Devin Harris called for a flagrant against Dwight Howard. Harris ended up flat on his back.

Earl K. Sneed

Chandler Parsons walks over and talks trash to Dwight Howard near the scorer's table before the 4th. Parsons is trying to impact the series.

Tony Jones

Houston is a really good team when Dwight Howard is playing this well
