T-Mobile Player of the Week: Rashard Lewis

This post is sponsored by T-Mobile

The Orlando Magic secured their grip on the Eastern Conference's second playoff seed last week by going 2-1 and, by virtue of their defeats of the Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies, now hold the distinction of having beaten each of the NBA's other 29 teams at least once this season. They accomplished that despite a difficult week from franchise center Dwight Howard, who shot just 50% from the field and had only one double-double in the three-games. They needed their perimeter players to step up with him struggling with foul trouble, and they responded. Rashard Lewis was the most distinguished.

Vince Carter's rounded linescore of 19/6/4/1/0 bests Lewis', but I couldn't bring myself to reward him given the fact that he only played one above-average game and, even with his spectacular performance against Memphis, scored less efficiently than the average swingman. Lewis, on the other hand, turned in two fantastic performances out of three and made his three-pointers when counted upon. Though nothing but his scoring and percentages pop-out in the above chart, also note that he defended future Hall-of-Famer Dirk Nowitzki incredibly well in the victory over Dallas. For his tough defense and timely three-point shooting, Lewis is this week's T-Mobile Player of the Week Award winner.
