Hawks' Dwight Howard: Produces 14 points, 16 boards Monday
Howard finished with 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-8 FT), 16 rebounds, one block and one steal across 37 minutes in Monday's 105-100 loss to the Warriors.
The Warriors' small-ball style often results in lesser workloads for opposing centers like Howard who are more traditional back-to-basket types, but coach Mike Budenholzer had no problem leaning heavily on his star big man. While Howard didn't make a huge impact on offense, he continues to dominate on the glass. The 16 boards were only his fourth-best total in the Hawks' last seven contests.
