T-Mobile Player of the Week: Dwight Howard

This post is sponsored by T-Mobile.

It's time for another installment in our regular T-Mobile Player of the Week feature. It was, more or less, a successful week for the Orlando Magic as the team was - most notably - able to defeat the Boston Celtics in yesterday's game to win the season series 3-1. Once again, Dwight Howard led the way for the Magic.

What else is there to say about Howard that hasn't already been said? Ever since an embarrassing performance against the Portland Trail Blazers last month, Howard has played at a very high level. It's no coincidence, then, that the Magic are winning (eight of its last 10 games) and the defense is improving (2nd in Defensive Rating). Other players deserve credit for Orlando's recent success, too, but Howard's dominance on both ends of the floor is a big reason why the team is starting to round into form.
