HOUSTON (AP) - New Rocket Dwight Howard is healthy and talking about bringing a championship to Houston.

Howard says: "We have an opportunity to do something special if we stay together and stay focused."

He was slowed last year after offseason back surgery, which played a part in a disappointing and difficult season with the Lakers. The center's signing propelled the James Harden-led Rockets from a young and talented group to immediate contenders.

The Rockets reached the playoffs for the first time since 2009 last season and battled back from a 3-0 deficit before being eliminated by the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6.

Harden went from being a role player with the Thunder to bona fide star in Houston. He's looking forward to doing even more with the addition of Howard.
