Spot­light on Aaron Gor­don: The last time Den­ver faced the Magic, Gor­don was the NBA’s sur­pris­ing leader in 3-point field-goal percentage. He hasn’t quite sus­tained that high clip, but re­mains one of the league’s most im­proved play­ers. The big man orig­i­nally known for his im­mense ath­leti­cism is av­er­ag­ing 18.7 points, 8.3 re­bounds and 2.2 as­sists per game while shoot­ing 40.6 per­cent from 3-point dis­tance. Den­ver, how­ever, held Gor­don to 13 points on 5-of-11 shoot­ing (in­clud­ing 1-of-5 be­hind the arc) in the teams’ first meet­ing last month.
