Dwight Howard Received a Technical Foul For Throwing a Basketball at a Heckling Fan

Dwight Howard tosses ball at Mavs fan-a

Dwight Howard scored 33 points and took 11 rebounds against Dallas Wednesday in his best performance of the young season. The Rockets lost, 123-120, but it wasn’t Howard’s fault – he even made 9 of 13 free throws!

Then again, this happened: With less than three minutes remaining, Howard grabbed an offensive rebound and was fouled by Jose Calderon. As Howard was walking to the line, Houston’s center tossed the basketball at a fan seated behind the basket who had been heckling him. The fan swatted the ball away – much like Dirk Nowitzki swatted away Howard’s layup attempt a few minutes later – and the referee hit Howard with a technical foul.
