On a quick baseline drive, Dwight Howard elevated for a big dunk over a helpless Joel Freeland.

“There’s noone that can guard Dwight Howard down low…” Are you serious Reggie Miller?!? Here are 5….Andre Jordan…Roy Hibbert…Nikola Peković…Brook Lopez…Andre Bynum (If he ever got his head together)
it’s pretty bad when i would rather hear reggie miller over houston’s broadcast team
The last 3 you said are completely laughable. Pekovic and Lopez have always been notoriously bad defenders (isn’t there some stat about Pek allowing the most shots at the rim or highest % at the rim or something?), and in the games Bynum’s played this season, he has had a devastating lack of mobility on the defensive end.
Though, I must add, I agree with your opinion of Millers comment. That’s hyperbole by Reggie. If Dwight was so dominant, he’d be averaging a lot more than 18 points.
Nov 23rd 2013 T-wolves Vs houston….D Howard has 11 points…Pek had 14 pts… http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=400489065
(Really my comment is that D-Howard has a very UNDER DEVELOPED post game and her relies too greatly on his strength, power & athleticism, if he plays anyone that is relatively as strong & tall or athletic….he has problems)
The lesser of two evils I’d say.
Chuck Hayes does a very solid job of defending Dwight as well. Now that Hayes is a Raptor, I get to see a lot more of his games. Although he’s no shot blocker, the man is an immoveable wall in the post.
