Default Dwight Howard does not get touches...

I find it funny people were even complaining about him, dude had a solid game 14/26 on 86% FG, what else is he supposed to do? Sure he made one big mistake having that rebound stolen, but I'd hardly consider the so-called assist to Gaillinari as his fault at all since all he was trying to do was to stop opponents from scoring. It was just unlucky, sometimes it happened.

The problem is, you get rusty if you do not get touches. Your guards jack up shots, and you feel little involved in the game. The bad effect is that once you get the ball, you become clueless what to do with it 'cause you havent had the ball for such a long while. I dare to say that Dwight with Magic or Nets would average 25/15. The reason why he underperforms in the Lakers team is that he aint being involved in the offense as he is supposed to, which is unfortunate. Dude shoots 86% from the field, and gets only 7 shots?

Dude had a pretty good first half. Went 6/7 iirc. Why did they stop going to him?

You are right.

Your typo sold him short, he had an outstanding game 26 rebounds and 4 or 5 blocks, along with shooting 86%.

This is because Howard almost instantly gets stripped anytime he has the ball and can't shoot.

This.

Though I have to admit that I don't know why the Lakers don't run more pick and rolls with him rather than having him post down low.

i find it funny how you create a thread about a guy who has zero offensive moves not getting the ball enough

his entire game is built on the greatness of others spoon feeding him. and half the time he can't finish the and 1 he was set up for. then bricks the 2 freebee's

what he needs is to learn some real back down moves and footwork so he can go one on one without tripping over his own 2 feet

Why didn't he then? I dare say you're a moron.

of course this fool has a high percentage. He doesn't make the attempt to shoot because it gets stripped well before he attempts to shoot..

Yeah, I find it hilarious tbh. Put him in the Nets and hes a 25/15 player. Seriously, the fact that their team does not know how to use Dwight does not indicate hes a bad player. Remember how Melo stink early last year shooting 38% from the field? Now hes a MVP candidate.

you can be efficient. but at the same time a void on the offensive end. his decision making is also pathetic.

i think people are trying to point out that he is never in a position to score unless he's spoon fed.

if bynum played tonight he would be a viable option offensively allong with the great rebounding numbers.

you can just dump it into bynum and he goes to work 1 on 1

howard cant

^It's not hate he really does keep getting stripped or turning the ball over. It happens a lot. They can't post him up. Someone else suggested PnRs with him and that makes sense, but tell that to the coach.
