Philadelphia 76ers center Dwight Howard feels targeted by the NBA referees as he thinks he does not deserve all of his technical fouls.

The Sixers’ veteran has received a league-high 15 techs so far this season with refs giving him a hard time during the 17.4 minutes per game he receives this year.

“I do feel like I am being targeted, every night,” he said, per Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “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.”

Howard admitted he has to do a better job at avoiding such situations, especially during the postseason with Philadelphia having championship aspiration.

“…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,” Howard said on his latest technical foul.
