He was booed relentlessly facing his former team for the first in his return to the Staples Center, but Dwight Howard ended the night with the last laugh. Howard finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds as the Houston Rockets scored a season high 134 points.
In the 3rd quarter, with the Rockets up by 22 points, Laker fans began chanting ‘Howard sucks’, when Howard, himself joined in while on the court. He would later take part in the same chant later in the 4th quarter on the bench with Chandler Parsons and Patrick Beverley.
