Howard's huge game lifts Hornets over Timberwolves, 118-102

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Dwight Howard is doing anything he can to eliminate the pressure he feels shooting free throws - even if that means thinking about the Unabomber.

Howard said he let his mind wander Monday night to a recent show he's been watching on Netflix about the hunt for the Unabomber. The big man went 9 of 14 at the foul line and finished with 25 points and 20 rebounds in the Charlotte Hornets' 118-102 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"I guess it works," Howard said. "I just stay away from my own brain."
