I would say yes because of his rebounding and ability to get other guys open. Remember when Phil would keep Shaq late in the game? The only reason why Horry got that game winning three against the Kings was because Shaq rebounded Kobe's miss and then Divac deflected it towards Horry.
If they foul howard off the ball we get 2 free throws and the ball.

Also in another scenario, with there being little time left it is still not a smart move as the Lakers could be in the act of shooting at the time of the foul and could get a three point play to win the game.
