Howard's big game powers Hornets past Hawks 109-91

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Dwight Howard couldn't suppress a wide smile when asked if he gained any personal satisfaction from his performance Friday night against his former Atlanta teammates.

"Uh, yeah," Howard said with a laugh. "I just wanted to go out there and dominate - and that has to be my mentality every night."

Kemba Walker scored 26 points, Howard was a major force inside with 20 points and 15 rebounds in his first home game with Charlotte, and the Hornets rallied to beat the Hawks 109-91.
