Dwight Howard is continuing to enjoy the resurgence to his career this season. He had another solid outing on Wednesday versus the Golden State Warriors, as he recorded 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot, which allowed the Charlotte Hornets to keep the game competitive despite the loss.

The eight-time All-Star center also made history on the night, as he passed Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal for ninth place on the all-time defensive rebounds list, bringing his total to 8,893 for his career.

Howard has regained the form he had during the early days of his pro career. He is averaging a double-double of 15.1 points and 12.1 rebounds, to go along with 1.2 assists and 1.1 blocks in his first season in Charlotte, after getting traded from the Atlanta Hawks during the summer.

If he continues to play at this level from here on out, it could be possible for him to surpass the other greats on the all-time list. In eighth place is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Moses Malone is currently seventh.
