Since being dealt to the Charlotte Hornets, Dwight Howard is enjoying a resurgence to his career. He has been playing very well this season, and is anchoring the defense and rebounding duties for his team. Howard's splendid start to the season also includes some impressive highlights, just like the one he did versus the Orlando Magic.
The eight-time All-Star drove hard to the basket even with Nikola Vucevic defending him. Dwight Howard made a couple of dribbles that sent Vucevic to the floor, before throwing down an uncontested dunk. The Hornets center then mocked Vucevic on his way to the other end.

The Hornets won the game, 104-94, with Dwight Howard posting 12 points and nine rebounds. His team has now improved their record to 9-13 for the season, and are also closing in to full strength as Kemba Walker returned to action after a two-game absence due to a sore shoulder.
The Magic, on the other hand, have now lost 11 of their last 13 games, and saw their win-loss slate drop to 10-15.
