VIDEO: Josh Smith and Dwight Howard’s lob party vs. Mavericks in Game 2


The Houston Rockets went on a 19-4 run in the fourth quarter to blow past the Dallas Mavericks in Game 2 of their first round series on Tuesday night. Josh Smith was the catalyst of that run.

Smith connected with his former AAU teammate Dwight Howard on multiple consecutive alley-oops, but Smith was wheeling and dealing all over the place, initiating the offense, hitting back door cutters for lay ups, and finishing a few of his own.

The versatility of Smith and the other Rockets forwards is what leads me to believe this team is a justified sleeper in the West because of their scrappiness. It’s also why Houston opted to pick up Smith midway through the season after he was waived by the Pistons. He earned his worth at the best time.
