Dwight Howard will face Kristaps Porzingis for the first time tonight. Hes been impressed with the rookie thus far. For him to be 7-2, 7-3, hes skilled tremendously & and I like where his head is at, Howard said. I really never heard of the kid before the draft & I watched the draft & the fans were booing & I felt bad for him. But it seems now hes won New Yorks heart with the way hes played.
