Dec. 9 7:27 PM PT8:27 PM MT9:27 PM CT10:27 PM ET3:27 GMT11:27 8:27 PM MST10:27 PM EST7:27 UAE (+1)04:2722:27 ET9:27 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 21 points Saturday, going 9 of 14 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 110-99.

Analysis: Fresh off a 25-point, 20-rebound, six-block masterpiece Friday against Chicago, Howard continues to look like a rejuvenated player in Charlotte.

Dec. 8 6:47 PM PT7:47 PM MT8:47 PM CT9:47 PM ET2:47 GMT10:47 7:47 PM MST9:47 PM EST6:47 UAE (+1)03:4721:47 ET8:47 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 25 points Friday on 11-of-23 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Chicago Bulls 119-111 in overtime.

Analysis: After he went three games without a double-double, Howard notched his 13th of the season. He fell one point shy of his season high and had a season-high six blocks. Howard's free-throw shooting has been better lately, going 16 for 20 in the last four games before this 3-for-8 showing.
Dec. 7 6:05 AM PT7:05 AM MT8:05 AM CT9:05 AM ET14:05 GMT22:05 7:05 AM MST9:05 AM EST18:05 UAE15:059:05 ET8:05 AM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 14 points Wednesday on 4-of-10 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Golden State Warriors 101-87. Howard grabbed seven rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -17 in his 29:34 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Howard is off to a disappointing start this month, averaging 12 points on 41.9 percent shooting along with 8.3 rebounds. He had double-doubles in each of his final six games of November but has yet to get one in December. Howard's touches, however, could increase after big men Frank Kaminsky and Cody Zeller both got hurt Wednesday.
Dec. 4 7:28 PM PT8:28 PM MT9:28 PM CT10:28 PM ET3:28 GMT11:28 8:28 PM MST10:28 PM EST7:28 UAE (+1)04:2822:28 ET9:28 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 12 points Monday, going 5 of 14 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets defeated the Orlando Magic 104-94.

Analysis: Foul problems plagued the big man yet again. He didn't have any in his previous six games and posted double-doubles in all of them, averaging 19.8 points and 13.8 rebounds, but that string ended Friday. It was the fifth time this season that Howard had at least five fouls, and No. 5 came four minutes into the third quarter - he sat the rest of the way.
Nov. 30 8:52 AM PT9:52 AM MT10:52 AM CT11:52 AM ET16:52 GMT0:52 9:52 AM MST11:52 AM EST20:52 UAE17:5211:52 ET10:52 AM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 22 points Wednesday, going 8 of 12 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Toronto Raptors 126-113. Howard pulled down 10 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 30:44 on the floor. He added one steal.
Analysis: Howard turns 32 in December but is looking more and more like the player who was a dominant force in his 20s. He has posted six consecutive double-doubles, averaging 19.8 points on 62.3 percent shooting along with 13.8 rebounds.
Nov. 25 7:53 PM PT8:53 PM MT9:53 PM CT10:53 PM ET3:53 GMT11:53 8:53 PM MST10:53 PM EST7:53 UAE (+1)04:5322:53 ET9:53 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 10 points Saturday as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the San Antonio Spurs 106-86. Howard pulled down 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 22:05 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Analysis: Howard missed seven of 10 shots and was clearly tired after playing 30 minutes in Cleveland the night before.
Nov. 24 8:36 PM PT9:36 PM MT10:36 PM CT11:36 PM ET4:36 GMT12:36 9:36 PM MST11:36 PM EST8:36 UAE05:3623:36 ET10:36 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 20 points Friday, going 7 of 14 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-99.

Analysis: Howard has recorded four straight double-doubles, averaging 21.8 points and 15.5 rebounds.
Nov. 22 6:43 PM PT7:43 PM MT8:43 PM CT9:43 PM ET2:43 GMT10:43 7:43 PM MST9:43 PM EST6:43 UAE (+1)03:4321:43 ET8:43 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 26 points Wednesday, going 10 of 13 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets topped the Washington Wizards 129-124 in overtime.

Analysis: Howard has now put up 25 and 26 in consecutive games after not scoring more than 22 in any of his first 15 contests. It's unlikely the 14-year veteran will keep this going.
Nov. 20 6:39 PM PT7:39 PM MT8:39 PM CT9:39 PM ET2:39 GMT10:39 7:39 PM MST9:39 PM EST6:39 UAE (+1)03:3921:39 ET8:39 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 25 points Monday on 8-of-10 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 118-102. Howard grabbed 20 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 30:02 on the floor. He added four blocks.
Analysis: The Daily Double was at it again, notching his eighth double-double and reaching 20 rebounds for the third time this season. Howard, the NBA's active leader in 20-20 games with 49, became the first Hornets player to accomplish the feat since Al Jefferson in 2013. Howard has totaled 41 points on 15-of-20 shooting with 36 rebounds and five blocks in his last two games. He's well on his way to averaging a doubble-double for the 14th time in 14 seasons.
Nov. 18 6:17 AM PT7:17 AM MT8:17 AM CT9:17 AM ET14:17 GMT22:17 7:17 AM MST9:17 AM EST18:17 UAE15:179:17 ET8:17 AM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 11 points Friday, going 4 of 10 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Chicago Bulls 123-120.

Howard pulled down 16 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +18 in his 29:41 on the floor. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: Howard notched his seventh double-double of the season and with 13.9 points and 12.5 rebounds, is on pace to average one for the 14th straight season. He's 9 for 27 on free throws in his last four games but that's to be expected with Howard.
Nov. 16 9:04 PM PT10:04 PM MT11:04 PM CT12:04 AM ET5:04 GMT13:04 10:04 PM MST12:04 AM EST9:04 UAE06:040:04 ET11:04 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored eight points Wednesday on 3-of-5 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 115-107.

Nov. 7 8:17 PM PT9:17 PM MT10:17 PM CT11:17 PM ET4:17 GMT12:17 9:17 PM MST11:17 PM EST8:17 UAE05:1723:17 ET10:17 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 21 points Tuesday on 9-of-11 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the New York Knicks 118-113. Howard grabbed nine rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 30:25 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: Howard was listed as probable before the game with a sprained right foot, though coach Steve Clifford didn't seem concerned that Howard would have to sit.
Nov. 6 10:10 PM PT11:10 PM MT12:10 AM CT1:10 AM ET6:10 GMT14:10 11:10 PM MST1:10 AM EST10:10 UAE07:101:10 ET12:10 AM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 13 points Sunday on 6-of-8 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-94.

Nov. 6 1:26 PM PT2:26 PM MT3:26 PM CT4:26 PM ET21:26 GMT5:26 2:26 PM MST4:26 PM EST1:26 UAE (+1)22:2616:26 ET3:26 PM CTNaN:� - Howard was a limited participant in the shootaround with a sprained right foot but will start Tuesday night against the Knicks.
Analysis: Maybe this injury has something to do with the fact Howard failed to grab double digits in rebounds for just the second time in 10 games Sunday and had just eight field-goal attempts.
Nov. 3 8:37 PM PT9:37 PM MT10:37 PM CT11:37 PM ET3:37 GMT11:37 8:37 PM MST10:37 PM EST7:37 UAE (+1)04:3723:37 ET9:37 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 20 points Friday, going 5 of 10 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the San Antonio Spurs 108-101. Howard pulled down 13 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 31:07 of playing time.
Analysis: The Spurs' hack-a-Dwight strategy helped Howard achieve his second-highest point total of the season by making half of his 20 foul shots. Though he's still shooting an awful 40.2 percent from the line, the rebounding demon has now registered seven double-doubles in nine games as a Hornet.
Nov. 1 8:53 PM PT9:53 PM MT10:53 PM CT11:53 PM ET3:53 GMT11:53 8:53 PM MST10:53 PM EST7:53 UAE (+1)04:5323:53 ET9:53 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 17 points Wednesday on 6-of-10 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 126-121. Howard grabbed 11 rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -11 in his 29:13 of playing time. He added one steal.
Analysis: Despite committing six turnovers, Howard shook off Monday's miserable two-point, 1-for-9 shooting performance at Memphis to notch his sixth double-double in eight games. The 31-year-old is averaging a very solid 14.1 points and 14.3 rebounds so far in a Hornets uniform.
Oct. 30 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST7:22 UAE (+1)04:2223:22 ET9:22 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored two points Monday, going 1 of 9 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 104-99. Howard pulled down seven rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +9 in his 29:04 on the floor. He added one block.
Oct. 29 5:38 PM PT6:38 PM MT7:38 PM CT8:38 PM ET0:38 GMT8:38 5:38 PM MST7:38 PM EST4:38 UAE (+1)01:3820:38 ET6:38 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 22 points Sunday on 9-of-13 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets defeated the Orlando Magic 120-113. Howard pulled down 10 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +14 in his 31:08 of playing time. He added one block.
Analysis: Howard came into the game leading the NBA in rebounding at 17.6. However, his streak of five straight games with at least 15 rebounds ended. But he had his best offensive game with season highs in points and field goals. The free throws are still a big problem, but that's just expected from Howard at this point.
Oct. 27 7:12 PM PT8:12 PM MT9:12 PM CT10:12 PM ET2:12 GMT10:12 7:12 PM MST9:12 PM EST6:12 UAE (+1)04:1222:12 ET9:12 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 19 points Friday, going 7 of 13 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Houston Rockets 109-93. Howard grabbed 16 rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 31:54 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: Howard's poor free throw shooting - he was 5 of 15 - cost the Hornets points and momentum. Howard is now 16 of 40 from the stripe this season, well below his career mark of 56.5 percent.
Oct. 26 9:27 PM PT10:27 PM MT11:27 PM CT12:27 AM ET4:27 GMT12:27 9:27 PM MST11:27 PM EST8:27 UAE06:270:27 ET11:27 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 15 points Wednesday on 4-of-7 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets topped the Denver Nuggets 110-93. Howard grabbed 19 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +15 in his 26:46 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Analysis: Howard even hit his free throws in this one, finishing 7 of 11 from the foul line en route to his third double-double in four games. The eight-time All-Star has looked rejuvenated in a Charlotte uniform, averaging 13.3 points, an impressive 17.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks for the 2-2 Hornets.
Oct. 24 10:46 PM PT11:46 PM MT12:46 AM CT1:46 AM ET5:46 GMT13:46 10:46 PM MST12:46 AM EST9:46 UAE07:461:46 ET12:46 AM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored eight points Monday on 4-of-6 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Howard pulled down 22 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 34:06 of playing time. He added four blocks.
Analysis: Despite finishing just shy of a third straight double-double to begin the season, Howard has been cleaning the glass at a rate of 17.3 rebounds per game. On the negative side, the 31-year-old is a woeful 4 of 19 from the foul line after misfiring on all nine of his free throw attempts Monday.
Oct. 20 6:08 PM PT7:08 PM MT8:08 PM CT9:08 PM ET1:08 GMT9:08 6:08 PM MST8:08 PM EST5:08 UAE (+1)03:0821:08 ET8:08 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 20 points Friday, going 8 of 12 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets defeated the Atlanta Hawks 109-91. Howard pulled down 15 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +34 in his 33:01 of playing time. He added one block.
Analysis: Howard, who played last season for his hometown Hawks before being traded away, was unstoppable on the block. The 6-foot-11 eight-time All-Star used his strength to get great position down low and had his pick of shots close to the basket. Howard punctuated the win by grabbing an offensive rebound with an outstretched hand and then elevating for a powerful two-handed dunk that brought the crowd to its feet with 4 minutes left.
Oct. 18 5:53 PM PT6:53 PM MT7:53 PM CT8:53 PM ET0:53 GMT8:53 5:53 PM MST7:53 PM EST4:53 UAE (+1)02:5320:53 ET7:53 PM CTNaN:� - Dwight Howard scored 10 points Wednesday, going 5 of 9 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Detroit Pistons 102-90. Howard grabbed 15 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 31:27 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal.
Analysis: Howard is playing for his third team in three seasons. Howard, who signed a three-year, $70.5 million deal with Atlanta in July 2016, averaged 13.5 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 74 games during the 2016-17 season.
