Stat of The Day: Josh Howard Without Dirk

Josh Howard had a monster game yesterday, almost getting a triple double with 29 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists. And it really wasn't even a surprise. With Dirk out, it seems as if Howard always puts up big numbers. And it's not just in our heads...

So what does it all mean? I'm not sure, but I know it doesn't mean Dirk should be out more.  Maybe Mike Fisher just has it nailed.

I am still optimistic that one of these days, Josh and Dirk (Jack Johnson and Tom O'Leary) can be a one-two-punching powerhouse. I'm optimistic because Josh once again teased me in Dallas' 98-76 blowout win at LA...

... Josh's issues are now so clear they are no longer subject to debate...

...But God, he's a tease.
