Dwight Howard wins second straight defensive player of the year award

Dwight Howard has won his second straight NBA defensive player of the year award after becoming the only player to lead the league in blocks and rebounds in the same season twice — let alone in consecutive years.

Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy and players confirmed the All-Star center will accept the award at a news conference Tuesday at 2 p.m.

“I think it’s a well deserved honor,” Van Gundy said. “He’s the most impactful defensive player.”
