LeBron James says the Cavaliers will attack Dwight Howard in the paint, even though he was this season's Defensive Player of the Year.
“He’s the defensive player of the year for a reason. He definitely changes shots and tries to prevent guys from going into the paint," James said. "But we have to get decent touches early and make him play one-on-one defense so that he is not allowed to just roam around the defensive zone.
“That’s just us, we’re an attacking team," said James when asked why he is so confident that the Cavaliers will challenge Howard. "So if he’s on the court or not on the court we’re gonna attack anyway.”
