Ariza is a good defensive player, ahtletic. really the Lakers need him to generate a jumpshot, then he would be more useful.
Orlando are playing really well, Howard is dominating, while Nelson has stepped his game up big time. Lewis and Turk do their thing to. The rookie Courtney Lee has also been playing well. Their main weakness is having a weak bench. i think this is why they wont go all the way. also they dnt really have a go-to-guy. they dnt go to Howard in tough situations, they aint got a Kobe, Pierce or Lebron.
but when the Magic start hitting their three pointers they really hard to beat.
