Orlando Magic Forward Aaron Gordon Throws Down Reverse Windmill Dunk vs. Pacers

Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon appears to be getting in some early practice for this year's Slam Dunk Contest. 

In the first half of the Magic's game against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Gordon stole a pass from Al Jefferson and finished the fast break with a reverse windmill dunk. 

Earlier this week, Yahoo's Shams Charania reported Gordon would be among this year's participants in the Slam Dunk Contest at the NBA's 2018 All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles. 

Gordon was knocked out in the first round of last year's dunk contest, but he put on a legendary performance as the runner-up to Zach LaVine in 2016. 

Hopefully this dunk against the Pacers was a preview of things to come in L.A. next month.
