Dwight Howard expects to wear cape late in games

Dwight Howard wants the ball in the fourth quarter. He wants to be the closer. He wants to show why he’s known as Superman.

Unfortunately for the six-time All Star and soon-to-be free agent, that didn’t happen Saturday night. Howard touched the ball only six times on offense in the fourth quarter, with one of those coming from his own offensive rebound.

Despite Orlando’s 99-94 win over the Bucks, Howard made it clear that this is not the role he wants.

“I do want the ball more in the fourth quarter,” a frustrated Howard told FOX Sports exclusively after the game.

“I want to become a closer. The only way you get there is by getting the ball and have coach have the confidence in giving me the ball.
