Dwight Howard’s second tenure in Los Angeles is starting off good. After only playing nine games last year, there have been fears amongst fans and experts that he wouldn’t be a good backup.

When DeMarcus Cousins was sidelined with another season-long injury, the Lakers had to find a backup and decided to go along with Howard.

Two nights ago, form off the bench, Howard scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his third game. During an interview, Howard echoed his outlook from when he was signed and the preseason. He was very team-focused and not boastful but content with his place on the team. If Howard produces numbers like that, which helped the Lakers surge for the win, he could be the difference-maker in the Battle of Los Angeles.
