Howard powers Magic over Bobcats

Dwight Howard finished with 24 rebounds and 79 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Howard recorded his first 20-20 game of the season for the Magic, who have won three consecutive games after opening the 2011-12 campaign with a loss at Oklahoma City.

Orlando, which got a game-high 23 points from forward Ryan Anderson, began the game with an 11-0 run and never looked back.

Corey Maggette had 20 points and seven rebounds to lead the Bobcats, who have dropped their last two.
