Dwight Howard started Game 4 on Thursday, racking up 12 points on 5-of-6 FGs and 2-of-3 FTs, 11 boards, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes.
Howard made an impact from the start of this series and he'd always been considered as a replacement for starting center JaVale McGee. Neither of L.A.'s centers had a big role vs. the small-ball Rockets in the Conference Semifinals, but it's a different story vs. Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets. Dwight had eight points on 4-of-4 shooting with eight boards in the first quarter of Game 4, so it stands to reason that he'll also start Game 5 on Saturday. Sep 24 11:56 pm (EST)
