Off-Day Open Thread: Which Orlando Magic Role-Player Has Made the Biggest Playoff Impact?

In Vince Carter, Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis, and Jameer Nelson, the Orlando Magic have four All-Stars who has keyed their incredible success so far this season at various points. All have played important roles in these playoffs. Howard's the defensive ace and offensive focal point, Carter the go-to scorer, Lewis the knock-down shooter, and Nelson the pick-and-roll initiator.

But, obviously, there's more to the Magic than their four stars. Which of the role players has been the most important in the postseason to date?

You can make a compelling case for Matt Barnes for his rebounding, defense, and hustle plays; Marcin Gortat for ably filling in for Howard on both sides of the floor; and Mickael Pietrus for his three-point shooting and defense. Those are the options in this poll. Though Jason Williams, J.J. Redick, and Ryan Anderson are working hard, none of them have made the sort of impact Barnes, Gortat, and Pietrus have, which is why they're out of the running.
