Rockets center Dwight Howard said that while the team had a couple of days off since defeating the Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs, he has been in the gym working on one main thing.

“I worked on free throws because we struggled the whole series,” Howard said.

The Rockets shot 67.9 percent from the foul line in the first round. Howard was 46 percent from the line and forward Josh Smith was 43 percent.

Smith said he has been spending extra time shooting, as well.

“Just shoot free throws, stay in the gym, get extra ones up, worry about what we control,” he said.
