VIDEO: Kings’ De’Aaron Fox loses Markelle Fultz with epic hesitation move
Fox’s hesi was so lethal that Fultz was booted out of the frame. Of course, his move wouldn’t have meant anything if he didn’t finish it. After getting rid of Fultz, Fox finished the tough floater over the outstretched arms of Nikola Vucevic.

In the thrilling game between two up-and-coming teams, it was the Magic who came out on top, 114-112, thanks to a late flip from Aaron Gordon that shocked the Kings.
Vucevic had a monster double-double with 26 points and 15 rebounds. Evan Fournier chipped in 25 points, while Gordon added 19 markers and nine rebounds. For his part, Fultz finished with 16 points, four boards and two dimes.
The Kings, meanwhile, had contributions from Nemanja Bjelica, who led all scorers with 34 points. De’Aaron Fox had a near-triple double with 31 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists, though they were unlucky enough not to get the W.
