by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Bob Cousy: Heat's Hassan Whiteside plays like Bill Russell
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(11:19 am ET) Former NBA star Bob Cousy is a big believer in Heat center Hassan Whiteside

In an interview with The Telegram, Cousy compared Whiteside, who's averaging 11.0 points and 9.8 rebound per game, to legendary Celtics center Bill Russell

"I have never said this in the 40 years since I retired," Cousy said, "but he is the first big guy, not (Patrick) Ewing, (Hakeem) Olajuwon, Shaq (O'Neal), who reminds me defensively and on the boards of Russell. He runs the floor well, he has excellent timing, he blocks shots and keeps them in play the way Russell did." 

Whiteside earned more playing time in January and has been a pleasant surprise for the Heat. He's also averaging 2 1/2 blocks per game. 

"That's a great honor," Whiteside said, when told of the Russell comparison. "Everybody knows that Bill Russell is probably one of the best shot blockers that ever lived. That's really a big honor that he thinks of me that way."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:48 am ET) Rockets center Dwight Howard returned from a 26-game absence Wednesday, scoring four points on 2 of 3 shooting while playing 16 minutes in his team's 95-93 win over the Pelicans.

"I felt pretty good. It seemed like as soon as I got out there it was time to sit back down, so it was kind of an adjustment," Howard said after the game, per the Associated Press. "I'm just happy to be back out there playing. The main thing for me is just really helping the team on the defensive end. The other stuff will come."

Howard also delivered seven rebounds, two assists and one block in Wednesday's win. The Rockets will move ahead to face the Timberwolves Friday.

Kings C DeMarcus Cousins posts double-double in win over Suns
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(12:28 am ET) Center DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings to a 108-99 victory over the Suns on Wednesday. 

Cousins put up 24 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one blocked shot. This was his third consecutive double-double. For the season he is averaging 23.8 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.65 blocks per game.
