Superman was in the building at Barclays Center on Wednesday night, but instead of his signature red cape, he was donning a Charlotte Hornets uniform.

Dwight Howard was a one-man wrecking crew against the Brooklyn Nets, scoring points at will and gobbling up rebounds en route to the NBA's first 30-point, 30-rebound game since 2010 in a 111-105 victory.

Howard finished with 32 points and a career-high 30 rebounds - 11 of which came on the offensive glass - on 10-of-17 shooting in 34 minutes of action. He also converted 12-of-21 from the charity stripe, as well.

The last 30-30 performance came courtesy of Kevin Love during his days with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The current Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star notched 31 points and 31 boards against the New York Knicks at the Target Center on Nov. 12, 2010.

Wilt Chamberlain is the undisputed king of the 30-30 line, producing it on 124 different occasions. Including Howard, all other players in league history have posted the line a combined 32 times.

Howard's previous career high on the glass was 26 rebounds, which he's accomplished on four separate occasions.

He entered the night averaging a double-double of 16.3 points and 12 rebounds on 55.4 percent shooting in his first year with the Hornets, who improve to 31-41 on the season with the win.
