Dwight Howard scored 39 points last night in Portland but expressed disappointment that his team folded as Portland mounted a comeback and took a 97-83 victory at home.

–Brian Schmitz of The Orlando Sentinel says (and I happen to agree) that it is a good thing Howard called out his teammates. Finally some action to show he is taking this season much more seriously. 

–Rookie Gordon Hayward will get the start tonight for the Jazz with Raja Bell sitting out with a thigh bruise.
