Gordon’s highlight play came with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
Magic guard Evan Fournier stole possession in his own half and triggered a fast break with a pass upcourt to team-mate partner DJ Augustin.
With Gordon hurtling towards the Pistons’ basket, Augustin lofted a pass which the Magic forward collected in mid-air before hammering the ball home with a one-handed slam, styling out the dunk ‘Mailman’ style with his left hand behind his head.
