Dwight Howard breaks out as Rockets blowout Magic

Scott Halleran

James Harden and Dwight Howard had massive statistical games as the Rockets rolled past the Magic.

Sometimes, it just goes your way. On Dwight Howard's birthday, the Rockets center put together one of his best performances yet, with 20 points and 22 rebounds against his former team, the Orlando Magic. James Harden joined in on the fun with a double-double, adding 27 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds as the Rockets rolled past the Magic, 98-88.

From the start, this was the Rockets' game to win. They controlled the action early, jumping out to a double digit lead after the first quarter. After that, with Vucevic out of the lineup for the Magic, Dwight Howard exerted his influence, dominating Glen Davis and the rest of the Orlando bigs inside. Terrence Jones also continued his strong play, with yet another double-double after joining the starting lineup.

Orlando came back late with a strong fourth quarter, but at that point, the game was out of reach. What did you think of the game? Leave your answer in the comments!
