Absolutely true. Jameer was the difference. Outside of the 5 minutes that TJ killed Arroyo, we just didn't see much of an advantage from our strongest position.

You take away all the talk about the Orlando pgs being out-matched, which supposedly fired-up Nelson, and things might have turned out differently. But actually I think the main thing that helped him was all the close games that Orlando played through the season. They just had a confidence in crunch-time that was hard to shake. And that helps out any pg.
