Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard contributed 26 points, 11 rebounds and two blocked shots Friday in a Game 6 loss to Portland.
Insight: Howard was consistently good all series (26 ppg, 13.7 rpg and 2.8 bpg) but it wasn't enough as the Trail Blazers eliminated Houston in six games. Certainly Howard's poor free shooting played a role in Friday's loss (6-of-11). Portland will face the winner of Sunday's Dallas/San Antonio game in round two.
