He literally jumped out of his shoe! That was more impressive than that ridiculous drone dunk Aaron Gordon did in this year’s NBA dunk contest, which was rumored to cost over $100,000 and took months of preparation since they had to build a custom claw on the drone and it required multiple trained pilots — seriously!
Anyways, besides this nice dunk off the glass from Payton, Gordon had a nice night with 21 points, 6 boards and 3 steals and has been putting up some big numbers over the past week. He’s also been hot from three, knocking down 9 of 16 from downtown in his previous three games. He was 0 for 3 on this night.
Payton had a game-high 11 assists to go with a team-high 22 points in the Magic victory and has also been a nice fantasy player over the last month.
