Dwight Howard got 20 minutes off the bench and was able to turn it into a game-high 15 rebounds (with four offensive) as well as scoring eight points (2-4 FG, 4-8 FT) with one assist, and one steal in a loss to the Rockets.
Howard amassed his fourth 15+ rebounding effort on the year, and he did a great job extending plays for the Lakers through his activity on the offensive glass. JaVale McGee sat out tonight's game, but Howard wasn't able to generate much offense due to the Rockets executing their small-ball strategy to perfection. Howard is at best a two-trick pony at this stage in his career, providing rebounds and blocks only. DFS players can do better targeting younger players with higher upside than Dwight Howard.
