Six-foot-eleven, two hundred sixty five pounds, Orlando Magic’s center Dwight Howard had just become the team’s all-time leading scorer after a match with the Pacers Tuesday night.

Howard has an accumulated 10,657 points nudging Nick Anderson to the second place with 10, 650.

The ball-shouldered center has already amassed several NBA and franchise records, leading the league three times in the rebound department, twice in the block category and double-doubles. He is the youngest player in the league’s history to reach one, two, three, four, five, six and seven thousand career rebounds and the youngest player to lead in rebound and blocks.

Meanwhile, the Magic bounced back from an embarrassing defeat against the Boston Celtics. They defeated the Indiana Pacers with 102-83. Howard was equally happy overtaking Anderson after a 3rd quarter dunk and a convincing win.

“We got a good win against a good team. Indiana hadn’t lost at home and had been playing great basketball all year. So it feels good to get a good win and I’m proud of my team,” the Howard said.

Orlando is set on to avenge their loss against the Celtics tonight.
