Dwight Howard drew another start for the Lakers on Saturday and rewarded his team with a solid effort on defense, providing them with nine points, nine rebounds and two blocks in 35 minutes.
It was nice to see Howard flirt with a double-double in this one, but his impact in the game was far more meaningful than what was reflected on the stat sheet. Howard's body in the paint gave Nikola Jokic and the rest of Denver's frontcourt some headaches. He nearly got into it with Paul Millsap after Howard landed a shoulder to Millsap's face while boxing him out for a rebound. Beyond that, Howard was not involved in any sort of on-court antics.
