Raptors’ Fred VanVleet puts Magic’s Markelle Fultz on skates before hitting 3-pointer

Fred VanVleet, Markelle Fultz

Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet just unleashed a crossover which put Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz on skates. To complete the play, VanVleet drained a 3-pointer.

Check out the clip below posted by Shaqtin’ a Fool. Fultz was a little bit excited on defense and VanVleet made him pay. A single crossover sent him to the floor.

VanVleet is picking off from his breakout season last year. He rose as one of the Raptors’ key pieces in the regular season. Come playoff time, he hit crucial shot after crucial shot. Now, his main weapon is the 3-point shot which he can knock down at will either through catch-and-shoot situations or through his own creation.

In their 104-95 win over the Magic, the Illinois-native finished with 14 points, five rebounds, six assists, and two steals. It was a relatively off night from the field as he shot just 21.4 percent and 14.3 percent from deep. However, his all-around play was enough to lift the team for the win.

Other contributors include Kyle Lowry who led the game with 26 points, Pascal Siakam with 24 markers, and OG Anunoby with 12 points, eight rebounds, and five steals.

The Raptors are 3-1 with a ton of season left. Nevertheless, it’s a good start for the defending champions.
