Ballin: Dwight Howard had 24 points and 25 rebounds in a huge OT win over the Heat. It’s the third-straight win for the Magic and Dwight’s really showing he wants to stay in Orlando.

Not so much: After the game, Dwight said this: “I told them I want to finish this season out and give our team, give our fans some hope for the future. But I feel they have to roll the dice. It might be tough, but I feel we’ve got a great opportunity. But they’ve got to roll it.” He’s the worst.

In the face: Add this to the JaVale McGee reel.

At least there’s a silver lining here — JaVale actually scored at the end of this bonkers sequence. All’s well that ends well.

Line ‘em up: Dwight Howard took more free throws (18) than the entire Miami Heat team (11). However, the Heat made more (10) than Dwight (6).

Another?: When was the last time there were two game-winning blocks on back-to-back nights?

Bismack Biyombo’s was better, but this is still pretty great. Very Pau Gasol, which means the Rockets don’t even need to worry about trading for him any more.

Inaccurate: Lou Amundson scored a career-high and was rewarded with “M-V-P!” chants as he shot free throws. Thus far, he has not yet been added to NBA.com’s MVP Ladder, for some reason.

Lean back: Danilo Gallinari gets his Fat Joe on.

This reminds me of Dan Majerle, which is not someone I like being reminded of unless it’s that hilarious clip of Jordan going by him and Majerle yelling, “HELP!” Great shot though.

Success: Andrea Bargnani played in his third straight game last night, something he hadn’t done since January 11. We’ll be recording the “Power” remix later today.

Oh, come on: Dwight Howard is the worst, but trade rumors are THE WORST. To wit: “Carmelo Anthony’s discontent with the Knicks organization became so severe after Monday night’s loss to the Bulls, he told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday’s NBA deadline.” No.

Them’s fightin’ words: Russell Westbrook vs. Goran Dragic — who ya got?

I will take Russell Westbrook unless Goran is allowed to bring his brother, Zoran, along with him. He’s great with swords.

New strategy: On the night the Golden State Warriors traded their leading scorer, their best defender and their Kwame-est player, they notched their best victory margin of the season. Look for Stephen Curry, Dorell Wright and Andris Biedrins to be moved before their next game.

Other things: This is not how you his own daily deals website. Today’s steal — used ligaments … NBA.com had a Dwight Howard Nets t-shirt for sale for a couple hours, which was probably intentional because I am Mel Gibson in “Conspiracy Theory” … Let’s all hope Derrick Rose’s Bentley is OK … Penny Hardaway, who has been retired for four years, is getting another signature shoe

  1. Javal McGee is amazing. You guys have to make him his own Court Cuts by the end of the season.

  2. I would’ve taken the Zohan approach to that Goran joke, but to each their own.
