Somebody needs to tell Aaron Gordon he’s not in the Slam Dunk Contest anymore.

Though he couldn’t defeat Zach LaVine, the Orlando Magic big fella did what he could against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.

With under five minutes to go in the third quarter, Evan Fournier stole the rock from Leandro Barbosa and kicked it to Gordon. The 20-year-old then took two dribbles, planted his feet and exploded to the rim.

That was probably a 9, though—right, judges?
