08:11 AM ET 11.21 | "Hack-a-Howard" was back Tuesday night in Los Angeles, where the Nets helped mar Dwight Howard's otherwise stellar night with a 7-for-19 mark from the line. It was almost contagious as L.A. shot just 19-for-37 on free throws overall as a team. Howard's struggles from the line were particularly pronounced during the fourth quarter when he connected on just 3-of-10 attempts. ... However, as dicey as things got with Howard turning freebies into anything but free, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said he invites other opponents to try the same technique. "The thing with Dwight, I hope you know, if they start Hack-a-Dwight and he's making one out of two, that's a possession," D'Antoni said. "That's one point per possession. That's pretty good basketball."

Dantoni has NOTHING to do with the lakers recent good play. But he will definately be the reason they dont make the finals. Lol it's amazing how such a horrible coach keeps getting great jobs.
