Houston (CBS Houston) - Dwight Howard spurned the almighty Lakers in favor of the new age Rockets this offseason. So when Steve Blake hit a last second three to beat his former teammate 99-98, it wouldn’t be a shock to hear a little trash talk from the Lakers locker room.

Not this time.

“Down there somewhere, ya I’m human. I think (beating him) is great. But he made his choice, which is good. You got to respect that. He’s fine. They’re going to have a great team.” Lakers Head Coach Mike D’Antoni said.

Steve Nash, who was part of the pitch to keep Howard in Los Angeles, wasn’t one for jabs after the game either.

“Obviously he’s a terrific player, so obviously  his presence was felt but we felt like we were in pretty good form.” Nash said.

Howard, who constantly downplayed the importance of playing his former team, compared this loss to any other.

“It’s very upsetting that we lost the way we did but we just got to come back and get the next one.” Howard said.
