The Orlando Magic took on the Brooklyn Nets last night and routed them 139-105, giving the Nets one of their worst losses in franchise history. The highlight of the night though came from the Magic’s 2nd year player Aaron Gordon, who caught a pass from teammate Elfrid Payton at the free throw line and took off for a thunderous dunk from distance. The play definitely has to rank up there as one of the best in-game dunks of the year.
Gordon is coming off a controversial 2016 All-Star Weekend dunk contest which saw him come in second place to defending champion Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves, though many believed Gordon should have been the winner. One thing is for certain, the NBA’s marketing team has a lot of ammunition going into next year’s dunk contest. Watch the clip below.
