Howard produced 19 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-16 FT), 16 rebounds, one assist, four blocks and two steals over 38 minutes in Monday's 109-104 overtime win over the Trail Blazers. The veteran big man made his second-highest amount of visits to the charity stripe on the season, and most since tallying 20 free-throw attempts way back on Oct. 31 versus the Kings. Although he only drained those shots at a clip of 56.3 percent Monday, they accounted for nearly half of what was his second-highest point total in seven February contests. Howard was in double digits in the rebound column for the sixth time during that span as well, and has now also recorded multiple blocks in four outings this month.
Howard scored 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-3 FT) while adding 13 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 24 minutes during Saturday's 113-86 win over the Magic. The Hawks had this one well in hand by the half and gave their starters a rest in the fourth quarter, otherwise Howard could have put up an even better line. The 31-year-old was still on the court long enough to record his seventh double-double in the last eight games, though, and 33rd on the season.
Howard posted 24 points (11-13 FG, 2-3 FT), 23 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes Thursday during a 113-108 win over the Rockets. Howard bounced back in a big way after scoring just six points in 25 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday. On the second leg of a back-to-back, the 31-year-old center dominated all activities around the rim. He snatched five offensive rebounds, and muscled his way through the Rockets' frontcourt for easy layups and dunks. Howard will play another former team next against the Orlando Magic on Saturday.
Howard scored six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 116-93 loss to the Heat. Coming into Wednesday, Howard had recorded five consecutive double-doubles, so his lack of offense is a little surprising. Expect Howard to play with a little more energy coming up in the next two games as he takes on his former teams, the Rockets and the Magic, Thursday and Saturday.
Howard scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-7 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, three assists and a block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 110-93 win over the 76ers. After managing only nine total rebounds in his prior two games, Howard was able to dominate the glass against the Sixers with Joel Embiid (knee) getting the night off. Howard's now recorded six double-doubles in his last nine games, and 27 on the season.
