In the past two games for the Orlando Magic in NBA preseason, it appears Aaron Gordon is on a mission. The former NBA Slam Dunk contest star and No. 4 pick in the NBA Draft several years ago has now shown he's not just a one-dimensional player. His dunks may be dazzling but he's now showing the ability to lead the scoring assault in Orlando victories. The latest came with a three-point win over in-state rivals the Miami Heat. Here's the latest game recap on how the Orlando Magic defeated the Miami Heat 93-90.
