Dwight Howard returned to the floor Sunday for the Los Angeles Lakers after missing the three previous games while tending to a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Howard notched 22 points and 14 rebounds over 30 minutes, but turned the ball over seven times in LA’s 113-93 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Despite being slowed with the shoulder injury, nothing can stop Howard’s defensive prowess, which is evidenced below in his monster block midway through the second quarter.
