Just another feather in the cap for Dwight Howard. This is the third time this season that he has won the award, and considering the way he's been playing lately I wouldn't be surprised to see him grab another one before the season is over. From the press release:
Howard led Orlando to a 3-0 record, averaging 23.7 points on .614 shooting from the field, 14.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks for the Magic, which clinched its second consecutive Southeast Division title. During Orlando ’s 84-82 win over Boston on March 25, Howard posted 24 points, 21 rebounds and four blocks. Orlando owns a half-game lead on Boston in the race for the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
