Perhaps Jrue Holiday wanted to see if all the talk about Dwight Howard falling off was true or he just wanted to be bold, but he definitely paid for it when he tried to hit a jump shot on Howard. A healthier Howard was making his debut as a Rocket last night, while New Orleans made its debut as the Pelicans.

While New Orleans came out on top 116-115, Howard did have himself a solid game with 19 points and nine rebounds before he sat out at the end of the third quarter. He also gave Holiday this return to sender  the general direction from where it came. No matter what team he plays for, sonning Howard is something you probably want to avoid trying.
