Dwight Howard Blocks Nine Shots Against Bobcats

2010 NBA Playoffs First Round | Welcome to the Dwight Howard Block Party

Category: Basketball


The Bobcats swarmed Superman in every offensive possession and frustrated him so much that he racked up 5 fouls leaving him on the bench for most of the game.

Dwight Howard managed only 5 points and 7 rebounds in Game 1 of the Orlando Magic’s first Round playoff series with the Charlotte Bobcats last April 18.

Despite that, he set the tone for his team early giving a team playoff record with 6 blocked shots in the 1st quarter helping his team win 98-89.

The leading candidate for the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year Award finished with 9 blocks, just one shy of the playoff record held by Hakeem Olajuwon and Mark Eaton.

Check out below the Dwight Howard block-o-meter:

Game 2 is on April 21, 2010 – 7:00 PM at the Amway Arena in Orlando, Florida.
