ANALYSIS: Howard, who received a technical foul on Saturday for what appeared to just be him clapping, had the following to say regarding his questionable technical foul calls, "I do feel like I'm being a targeted every night. I have felt like I've been targeted, but I am just going to continue to play as hard as I can, I want the Philly fans to know that I am out there giving 130% every night. The calls might not go my way, I might seem a little frustrated, but I am out there to help this team win a championship."

"Sometimes the refs do give me some calls that I feel are unwarranted," Howard added. "Even the [technical foul] last game, I got a tech and I just clapped. So you know some things seem kind of crazy, but I have to realize my position on this team and what I have to do to help this team win. I have to make sure that I hold myself accountable to do the right things. So I've got to do a better job of that, but a lot of my techs have been just really quick and when I'm on the court, I'm passionate, I want to win."
