    "You might recall that about six weeks ago, I wrote that Dwight Howard's post game was "dead, or at least on life support." At that point, Howard had shot just 33 percent on post-ups, and he was turning the ball over on an embarrassing number of them — the continuation of a decline dating to Howard's first wave of back issues in Orlando.

    Gulp. In the 16 games since that column ran, Howard has shot 55-of-101 on post-ups — 55 percent! That would have ranked no. 3 among 70 players with at least 100 post-ups last season, per Synergy Sports. His points per possession on post-ups over that span would only rank about 25th among those 70 guys, mostly because his turnover rate is still too high. The Rockets would benefit from shifting a couple of those post-ups each night into pick-and-rolls with James Harden and Jeremy Lin."


    Fantastic to see Dwight coming around in regards to his post game. Looks so much more fluid out there and we're incredibly lucky to have two bonafide superstars in him and Harden.

    Here's to everyone getting healthy!

    Merry xmas from Australia!
