All eyes were on Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard in his first game back in the Staples Center to face the Los Angeles Lakers since leaving the team in the offseason, and fans were not welcoming to their former big man. 

Howard was showered with boos by fans on his first possession, as expected. 

On the following offensive possession, Howard threw down a massive dunk versus Chris Kaman and then received a technical foul, much to the delight of the fans.
