Early on during the Orlando Magic's loss to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night, Aaron Gordon added another flashy dunk to his already extensive highlight reel of dunks.
The Magic lost 93-86 to the Raptors at the Amway Center in Orlando last night, as the home team was not able to contain Kyle Lowry, who scored 25 points with five rebounds, eight assists, and was 9-of-17 from the field. Toronto has now won 12 of their last 13 games.
Shelvin Mack had the most points for Orlando on the night, as he finished with 17 points and four assists while also being 7-of-16 from the field. Gordon wasn't too far behind his teammate, as he finished the game with 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, and he was 7-of-15 from the field.
In his first game after missing the last five for the Magic due to a concussion, Gordon tried to get his team going early on in the game, as he had a slam dunk that would have been worthy of winning any slam dunk contest.
As you can see in the video, the forward managed to steal the ball off a bad pass by the Raptors inside his own half, and then drive the length of the court before jumping in the air and doing a 360 spin before slamming the ball home in the basket for the score.
It's obvious just by his performance in this game that Gordon is ready to receive a full workload by the Magic, but unfortunately, he wasn't able to guide his team to victory in his first game back after suffering a concussion.
The rebuild for next season continues for the Magic after this loss. They're out of playoff contention, but they would still like to win a few more games between now and the end of the season in order to put the team in good shape for a postseason push next season.
Orlando will look to get back to winning ways and snap their two-game losing streak when they host the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.
