1. Dwight Howard offensively- If you take away Howard's 6-13 free throw effort, he made 11 of 16 shots from the field, and scored 28 points. It was Dwight's highest scoring output in nearly a month.
2. Rashard Lewis defensively- Not a clerical error, you read it correctly, Rashard Lewis played solid defense on Dirk Nowitzki. Rashard made Dirk work for most of his 20 points, and really did an admirable job.
3. Hedo messed around and got a triple double- On a night where Hedo couldn't throw it in the ocean from the beach (4-14 from the field), Turkoglu worked hard on the glass and as a distributor, and ended up with his first career triple double, 13 points, 13 assists, and 12 rebounds.
4. Ball control- The Magic finished with just 8 turnovers for the night, their lowest total in nearly a month.
