Dwight Howard's exit from Orlando was somewhat less than cordial. Now he'll have to deal with the fallout upon his return. Howard will be in Orlando for the first time since becoming a member of the Lakers, and it's pretty likely that he'll be booed mercilessly. Still, Magic fans might have at least a hint of affection remaining for their former superstar; it's not like his departure left them mired in the basement, possibly for years to come. Right?
Howard has been turning it on as of late after a disappointing start to the season, and the Lakers' 33-31 record is a reflection of that.
The last time Howard met the Magic, they fouled him relentlessly. He went 9-of-21 from the foul line in a 113-103 Lakers loss.
