Dwight Howard: ‘I will remember that shot’ from David Lee
Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard wasn’t particularly impressed with what he believes was a deliberate shot against him by Golden State Warriors forward David Lee.
The two players collided in the second quarter of the Lakers’ six-point loss to the Warriors on Monday night, with Howard picking up a technical foul after Lee’s elbow made contact and bloodied Howard’s mouth.
Howard said he will “remember that shot” and “take care of it later,” and thinks people should decide on their own as to whether Lee was sincere when he said he was “just trying to go up and finish against a shot block” and didn’t mean anything personal by the brief clash, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:
“He got away with a shot,” Howard said. “I will remember this game. I will remember that shot. He said he wasn’t trying to do it. You can look at the play and see it for yourself. I will take care of it later.”
