In the clip below, right after nailing a short corner three in front of the Raptors bench, Gordon faced the players and seemingly had a few things to say. As he ran back, the Raptors bench let out a collective laugh.
C.J. Miles, Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, and co.'s reactions made Gordon's behavior look plain silly. Perhaps his antics were unnecessary at that point in the game.
In the end, it was still the Raptors who got the last laugh. They won, 93-91, over the Magic thanks to a perfectly set play for Danny Green that led to a game-winning bucket.
Aaron Gordon himself had 16 points and nine rebounds. Evan Fournier scored 27 points, a game-high, and Nikola Vucevic had a huge double-double with 14 points and 18 rebounds. The Magic are now 9-9 on the season.
For the Raptors, they got contributions from Green who finished with 13 points and three rebounds. Kawhi Leonard had a team-high with 18 points. Kyle Lowry had a relatively quiet night with nine points, seven assists, and four rebounds. The win puts the Raptors’ record at 14-4.
