Howard returns, Rockets squeak past Pelicans

James Harden yet again takes control. Dwight Howard returned to action tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans, his first game since January 23rd. It seems like it was much longer. But it didn't look that way. For a guy who hasn't played since January 23rd, Dwight Howard's help defense has been impressive. — Craig Ackerman (@ca_rockets) March 26, 2015 In only 16 minutes of play, Howard shot two-for-three from the field and grabbed seven rebounds and two assists. He was certainly active in his short time on the court, which is always a good sign from a player returning from...
