Dwight Howard gave the Lakers what they wanted on Sunday against the Hawks, scoring two points (1-of-1 FG), grabbing seven rebounds, swatting three shots and getting one steal.
The post play that Howard refused to give up was a big sacrifice he had to make to join the Lakers, and tonight's line is a clear indication that Dwight is staying engaged whether or not he gets the offensive touches. The scoring is minimal, but Dwight is still useful for rebounds and blocks. JaVale McGee had three points, five rebounds one steal and one block, but ruined his line with five turnovers. Tonight Dwight earned 22 minutes compared to McGee's 15 minutes, but things could flip back at anytime.
