We've had a tough time beating them, Anyone worried about these guys?

After getting off to a 21-13 November and December, the Rockets have been 23-8 since January 1. The only team with a better winning percentage in 2014 has been the Los Angeles Clippers, at 26-8. A big reason is the resurgence of Dwight Howard, who seems to be recovered from the 2012 back surgery that hampered his lone season with the Los Angeles Lakers last season. Howard, a three-time defensive player of the year, has not only helped the Rockets in what was one of their weaknesses last year, but has averaged 19.7 points and 13.1 rebounds per 36 minutes. "The biggest thing is his health," Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said of Howard. "If you watched closely last season, he started the year off slowly and finished the year very well. And this year, he's just continued on. Everyone talks about the defense, but offensively, he's very good."
