Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard played longer than expected in his return Saturday and led the team with 26 points.
Insight: The Rockets were supposed to ease Howard back into the lineup with 20-24 minutes on Saturday. Instead, he played 30 minutes and made 9-of-11 shots. Howard continues to struggle at the line, but that is to be expected. He also had 13 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal. Great first night back for Howard.
