ORLANDO -- Dallas Mavericks center Brendan Haywood believes there's no real secret to guarding Orlando Magic cenetr Dwight Howard.
Other than getting some reasonable breaks from the officials.
"It's tough to guard Dwight, but it all comes down to how the game is being officiated,'' Haywood said. "If they let you get as physical with him as he is on the offensive end, it's a lot easier.
"But if they're calling ticky-tack fouls and he gets to play prison ball, it's going to be a little bit tougher on you.''
The Mavs held Howard to 19 points and 15 rebounds during Friday's 100-98 win over the Magic. And the game's best center was limited to only two points in the final quarter, and none in the final 8:25.
