The Houston Rockets can’t miss anything right now, even Dwight Howard from across the court.
Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard isn’t exactly known for his range. The 6-11, 240 pound big man has attempted 48 threes in his career and hit five of them, good for a Lance Stephenson-esque 10.4 percent from beyond the arc.
Maybe Houston’s reliance on the three is having an impact on Howard. During practice on Saturday, Howard casually drained a one-handed full court shot.
Today has been a pretty good day for those attempting ridiculous shots. Howard effortlessly one-upped LeBron James, who drilled a similar shot earlier.
Now every NBA fan is left wondering who will be next player to drain such a shot. DeAndre Jordan? Chris Kaman?
I mean surely Steph Curry has one of these shots inside of him.
Given the way the Rockets have shot the ball lately, that probably would have worked during an actual game for Howard. Houston converted 14 dunks against the Dallas Mavericks in Game 2, most of which came from Howard or Josh Smith, before putting up 130 points in Game 3.
Howard should continue to have his way in Game 4 against the hapless Mavericks defense in Game 4 on Sunday, when Houston will go for the sweep.
