Dwight Howard told me the problem isn’t that the players aren’t playing hard enough. He said they’re playing tight. "We expect so much out of each other that sometimes I think we want to do too much," Howard said. "I would say it’s like when you grab sand too tight; you tend to lose all the sand. If you just hold it in your hand and you just let it stay there, it sits. But when you’re trying to grab sand and you try to grab something so tight, usually it falls out. "Sometimes we don’t have a lot of energy, and I think it’s because we want to win so bad sometimes we’re so cluttered in our mind. We’re going to be OK. Every guy in here is a student of the game. We’re all professionals, and we know how to get out of this." Howard said he spoke to his teammates shortly after the final buzzer [of the Orlando Magic's game against the Indiana Pacers].
