LN: Dwight, I’ve been swept before but I never let my team down by getting kicked out of the game.

If the trending #DwightHowardIsMoreUselessThan wasn’t going to rattle Dwight Howard, this certainly will.
With the Lakers trailing 55-34, Howard was ejected early in the third quarter after arguing with a referee.
“It’s over with now,” Howard said of his ejection. “I just got to do a better job of trying to keep my cool. It’s very tough to be out there playing. It’s an emotional game, you don’t want to lose, and sometimes when things don’t go your way, sometimes you react the wrong way. I just got to keep my cool.”
Drama was the last thing LA needed following one train wreck of a season and a sweep by the San Antonio Spurs.
But here we go again.
