He is shooting way better than he was earlier in the season.

One great analyst is that Howard is shooting a foot or two further away than he previously did. This is helping because Howard puts a little bit too much strength when he shoots.

I noticed this during the Knicks game, thought it was odd.. but it makes sense.

It's funny how something so simple can make a difference.

When watching Howard at the beginning of the season, I noticed many of his free throws were going hitting the back of the rim. Makes sense to keep it simple and try moving back. So far so good for his free throws.

yeah because he was always shooting them straight and that didn't seem the problem. Glad they've found the issue.
