The Orlando Magic have such a great assortment of young talent that it seems inevitable they’ll eventually put it altogether and evolve into one of the Eastern Conference’s better teams. One of their key pieces is point guard Elfrid Payton, who has had his ups and downs the past few seasons but every now and then shows flashes of brilliance that remind you of all that potential.
One of those flashes happened on Sunday afternoon during their game against the Raptors. After beating Kyle Lowry off the dribble, Payton found Nikola Vucevic with a gorgeous behind-the-back bounce pass for the easy jam. Going into the half, Payton leads the Magic with 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field.
