Default Dwight Howard had the best game of the year....

....and still came up short. When will Rocket fans admit that Laker fans were right. Laker fans are right again about Howard's great stats don't equate to winning.

Last night versus the Mavs he had his best game of the last 2 years and it ended in a loss as usual.

33/11

12 for 16 shooting.

9 for 13 at the charity stripe.

11 rebounds is not impressive to me, for him.

I wish Yahoo would update their player's bio....the horror of this guy in purple and gold. Someone email them Dwight's media day photo.

One player doesn't win or lose a team game though. If we would've played some defense all 4 quarters, then we would've won. You take away his contributions to the game last night and it's a blowout.

Dwight is such a joke. Former DPOY and he's made zero impact on Houston's defense.

Houston's defensive efficiency last season: 106.1
Houston's defensive efficiency this season: 106.4

Lakers defensive efficiency last season: 106.6
Lakers defensive efficiency this season: 105.1

The truth is as a Bulls fan who has little invested in Houston, Howard is anchoring a team with the worse defensive players he has ever played with...

You can't throw out stats without the understanding of just who Howard is playing with....Harden is an exceptional talent...But he is arguably the worst defensive SG in the league...Then you look at the 2 and 3 position and it's the same thing....Lin, while an offensive spark, gets beat a lot by his man...Parsons is a very solid player who can drop 20 in his sleep, but again on defense he is lacking...

So what you are left with is Dwight Howard being the only defensive force on the team as the center...You can't expect the man to play D in the paint AND on the perimeter...

Again, Howard is a lot of things...But the blame game with this dude has become over the top...

What people need to be having issue with is how Kevin Mchale coaches down the stretch of tight games and the fact that the Rockets' perimeter defense is horrible...

I already know you've watched games. Just based off of everything you just typed. I love my team, but you're spot on. I agree with you 1000000%
