We’ve already told you how Dwight Howard’s first game as a Laker went. Now we thought we’d bring you a shot of his first bucket.

This is one thing we could see a lot of, the high-low, big-to-big passing from Pau Gasol to Howard. Defenders have to come out and respect Gasol from 18 feet out and Howard is very strong rolling to the basket. The Lakers can utilize that in a lot of different ways.

But they are not all going to be that easy. Not close.
