The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Houston Rockets 123-120 Sunday night, but Dwight Howard didn't leave Moda Center without generating a few highlights in the process. 

Howard dropped 25 points on 7-of-14 shooting in the Game 4 loss, with his most emphatic bucket coming courtesy of a lob from teammate James Harden in the third quarter. 

After slipping behind the defense, Howard got up and rocked the rim with authority in the face of Blazers center Robin Lopez.
