Dwight Howard's Superhuman Swat

In case you missed it last night during the Magic's defeat of the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of their playoff series, Dwight Howard of the Magic just destroyed a shot by Ray Allen into the crowd behind the basket. Howard is no stranger to shot blocks, but this one looked like he was about to jump out of the gym.

Two things that made me realize this was a little extra special.

First was Marv Albert's call. Marv has been around the game a while now and doesn't break out the high enthusiasm unless it was warranted - and he got up on this one.

Second, watch as Howard uses his left hand as a support...on the backboard! You know you are getting up when you are bracing yourself on the backboard after smacking someone's shot in the stands. Howard looks like he came in off a trampoline, but I guess that's why they call him Superman.
