Howard: Perkins makes me better

“Kendrick did a Kareem shake tonight,” Howard said after the Magic’s win in March . “It shocked me, but that just shows me that those guys have really been working on their game and they’ve gotten a lot better.’
He was just as quick to credit Perkins after the Magic’s victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Howard scored just seven points and got to the line once in the second half.
‘They played great defense tonight,’ Howard said of the Celtics . ‘They pushed me out, I didn’t get into a good rhythm. Kendrick (Perkins) kept a body on me and that’s what he’s supposed to do. I have a lot of respect for Kendrick and he makes me a better player, something I look forward to next game. Me and Pat (assistant coach Patrick Ewing ) will watch film, see what I need to do so that it won’t be another night like tonight.’
Howard and Perkins will battle again in Game 2 on Wednesday night.
