VIDEO: Magic’s Markelle Fultz steals, throws behind-the-back pass for easy Evan Fournier slam vs. Wizards
Evan Fournier had thrown down exactly zero dunks this season entering Orlando Magic’s contest Wednesday versus the Washington Wizards. It took a magnificent swipe and score from point guard Markelle Fultz to set up the Frenchman’s jam, with the duo combining for an all-around highlight in the third quarter Wednesday.

Also worth noting is Terrence Ross’s triumphant reaction on the sidelines as he was about to check-in following Evan Fournier’s rise above the rim. Entering Wednesday, the Frenchman was on pace to average a new career-high with 19.5 points per game, all despite not having thrown down a dunk.
Markelle Fultz, on the other hand, has stepped into a full-time starting role and has shown glimpses of what his future may hold. At around four assists per game, the former No. 1 overall pick has become the lead point guard with the Magic and displayed a myriad of skills such as this one to set up Fournier.
