Kenneth Faried Dunked Over Dwight Howard, Then Howard Blamed Kobe For a Slow Defensive Rotation

LA’s three-game win streak ended in Denver Monday, which wasn’t a surprise, since the Lakers won Sunday in Dallas and this team is far too old to be winning back-to-backs on the road against good teams. LA trailed by 13 at the break, then mounted a few rallies to make it interesting, but Dwight Howard missed 11 of 14 free throws and the Lakers couldn’t take advantage of the Nuggets playing without leading scorer Danilo Gallinari.

I loved this Kenneth Faried dunk over Dwight Howard for three reasons: 1) It shows that nearly 60 games into the season, LA still struggles with pick-and-roll rotations, 2) Dwight Howard still can’t jump (seriously, three years ago, when he was the best defender in the NBA, he swats this away), 3) Does anyone in the NBA consistently play harder than Faried? Probably not.
