Dwight Howard had 24 points, two assists, five steals and four blocks on 9-of-13 shooting, but added just four rebounds in Tuesday's win over the Hornets.
Howard also hit 6-of-11 free throws, and his four boards are the fewest he's ever had in a game where he scored at least 20 points. The Lakers are playing like a team right now, and everyone, including Howard, is looking to pass first right now. Earl Clark has been crashing the boards, and while Howard had 10 and 13 rebounds in his previous two games, he had just two and nine of them in the two games prior to that. He's averaging 11.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.8 blocks over his last four games, so owners should adjust accordingly for his sudden decrease in rebounds.
