Aaron Gordon shot 4-for-13 from the field for 11 points with seven boards, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes to fall to the Raptors in Game 5 on Tuesday.
Gordon had alternated games, doing well then awful, so he kept the pattern strong by doing awful again. The Raptors did an excellent job slowing him down all series. Gordon is a bright young piece for this Magic team which really seems invested in him. He should only get better for dynasty owners moving forward.

Aaron Gordon shot 10-of-17 from the field to finish with 25 points, seven rebounds, five dimes, two 3s and one steal in Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Raptors.
Gordon was limited in the first half but turned up the heat in the third quarter where he scored 16 of his team-high 25 points. Unfortunately, his spirited play was not enough to mount a serious enough rally to challenge the Raptor's control over the game. The 23-year-old Gordon has displayed a fresh level of maturity in this series and finally looks prepared to make a significant leap forward in 2019-20.
April 19, 2019, 9:53 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon only scored 10 points on 4-for-10 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal on Friday night.
While Gordon's line doesn't jump off the page, it was Kawhi's struggles from the field (5-for-19) that highlighted the impact he had on this game. Gordon's strong defensive effort helped the Magic stay alive on a cold shooting night but it wasn't enough to win.
April 16, 2019, 10:46 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon shot 8-for-12 from the field for 20 points with five boards, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Raptors on Tuesday.
Gordon was the lone bright spot in a pitiful showing by the Magic in Game 2. He actually played much more efficiently than in Saturday's upset win, but his teammates didn't follow. Gordon looks to lead the Magic again for Game 3 on Friday in Orlando.
April 13, 2019, 7:44 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon had a double-double for the Magic, putting up 10 points, 10 boards, three assists, two 3-pointers and three steals in Saturday's win against the Raptors.
Despite struggling with his shot, 3-for-10 tonight, Gordon was able to help out in other categories and didn't wilt under the pressure of his first playoff game. It's tough to win in Toronto and the Magic wouldn't have accomplished this without Gordon's contributions today.
April 11, 2019, 12:23 amAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon dropped 27 points on the Hornets in Wednesday's regular-season finale, also adding seven rebounds, three assists and a steal while going 11-of-18 from the field.
It was another good-but-not-great season for Gordon, who ended things with top-85/100 per-game value and top-65/80 total value. He was able to stay on the court after logging just 58 games last season, but Gordon simply hasn't elevated his game enough to validate the thoughts about his top-50 upside. A guy with so much athleticism should be able to crack at least 1.0 steals or blocks over a season, which has only happened once in five tries (steals last season). There's nothing wrong with a middle-round pick returning middle-round numbers, but everything about Gordon's profile leaves you wanting just a little bit more. Maybe next year will be the year.
April 5, 2019, 10:29 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon turned in an excellent line of 10 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, two 3-pointers, a steal and a block in 28 minutes of action in Friday's win against the Hawks.
The Magic got whatever they wanted in this one riding a 60-percent shooting night to a big win. Gordon looked comfortable setting up his teammates dishing out seven or more assists for the sixth time this season. While owners would like to see more scoring, it's hard to argue with the results as Gordon's playmaking was a big part of the Magic scoring a season-high 149 points.
April 3, 2019, 10:10 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon bounced back on Wednesday against the Knicks with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go with seven rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
If playing the Knicks doesn't get you back into your rhythm, nothing will. Gordon shot the ball well tonight and was all over the floor making impact plays as he was the best starter for the Magic tonight.
April 1, 2019, 10:43 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon disappeared on Monday vs. the Raptors, contributing just six points, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 28 minutes.
The blocks saved the day, but Gordon took just seven shots, half of his season average. Speaking of poor performances, Terrence Ross shot just 2-for-10 tonight, putting up just six points. He did at least add two rebounds, three assists, two steals and two threes in his 24 minutes.
March 30, 2019, 10:31 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon had a great game in Saturday's big road win over the Pacers, hitting 9-of-15 from the field for 23 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
Gordon still hasn't put together all his upside just yet, but his top-50 output over the last couple of weeks is a nice improvement over his season-long top-90 production. If Gordon could check all the boxes like this with regularity he'd be a fantasy stud but as of now this line is just another flash of what owners pin their hopes on during draft season. At least he's turning it on during the fantasy playoffs.
March 28, 2019, 9:39 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon scored 20 points against the Pistons on Thursday, but added just three rebounds and four assists in an otherwise uninspiring line.
This has been kind of a trend for Gordon this year, where he just has some really disappointing lines given his athletic ability, especially on the defensive end. If he doesn't get back up to about two defensive counters a game, it'll be hard to see him being a top-50 player in future seasons.
March 22, 2019, 9:53 pmJonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathan Isaac only managed 11 points in Friday’s overtime win over the Grizzlies but added two treys, six rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and a turnover in 28 minutes.
Isaac has really cooled off after his excellent run last month but is still putting up enough cash counters to be owned in most leagues. Aaron Gordon had a dud with five points, four assists and three rebounds in 39 minutes.
March 20, 2019, 9:50 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon stuffed the stat sheet in Wednesday's 119-96 blowout win over the Pelicans, tallying 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, six dimes, four 3s, two steals and one block in 30 minutes of action.
AG has been heating up, scoring 20 points or more in three straight games now. He's had a rocky, up-and-down season but is poised to finish 2018-19 with a bang.
March 17, 2019, 8:36 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon delivered on Sunday at home against the Hawks with 22 points, eight boards, three triples, three assists and a steal.
Gordon has been a top-40 option over the last week despite being a top-90 guy on the season. Hopefully, Gordon can keep it going heading into the postseason as the Magic fight for a playoff berth.
