Another week is in the books for the Orlando Magic, who went 2-1 and continued to hold strong to the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race. And, of course, they could not have done it without Dwight Howard, who's earned yet another T-Mobile Player of the Week award.

In addition to posting the strong numbers listed above, Howard also broke Shaquille O'Neal's franchise record for consecutive double-doubles, with 20 games. He also shot 11-of-11 from the field for 30 points, while pulling down 16 rebounds, against the Houston Rockets, becoming the first player to tally 30 points and 15 rebounds without missing a shot attempt since Wilt Chamberlain. For that, we can overlook his plummet back to Earth yesterday against Miami, in which he missed 6 of his 7 shots and finished with but 7 points, 5 boards, and 3 blocks in 25 foul-plagued minutes.
