Gordon finished with eight points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven boards, nine assists, one block and one steal in 32 minutes of a 120-115 win against Memphis on Tuesday. Gordon had an off-night shooting, but made up for it with his contributions in other aspects of the game, including leading all players in assists in the contest. While he's only averaging 3.6 assists per game this year, Gordon has increased his role as a distributor lately, averaging 6.5 assists in March.
Gordon tallied 19 points (7-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and 10 rebounds along with four assists, three steals and two blocks in Sunday's win over Houston. Gordon posted his second straight double-double after he went for 15 points and 10 boards in a win over Minnesota on Friday. He didn't shoot particularly well in either game, though, posting a combined 40.6 field-goal percentage and 63.6 percent free-throw percentage. Other than that, though, his stats have spiked across the board recently, as he's averaging 9.3 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks over his last 11 contests.
Gordon totaled 15 points (6-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Friday's 132-118 victory over the Timberwolves. Gordon recorded his fifth double-double in his last seven games, continuing his strong run of performances. The efficiency was far from ideal but that is nothing new for Gordon who typically offers very little in terms of percentages. Evan Fournier (elbow) looks set to miss up to two weeks and so the Magic are going to need everyone to step up on the offensive end of the floor. While this bodes well for Gordon's shot attempts, it could also emphasize his poor percentages moving forward.
Gordon registered 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine assists, six rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 116-113 loss at Miami. Gordon failed to reach the 15-point mark for the second straight game but once again provided enough across the board to remain relevant. After a run of several games scoring 20 or more points last month, Gordon has crashed down to earth with three straight contests under the 20-point threshold, but he has averaged 9.0 assists and 7.7.rebounds during that stretch, so he remains a must-roster player across all formats even when he's not scoring near his season average of 14.4 points per contest.
Gordon (knee) will play Wednesday against the Heat. As expected, Gordon will play Wednesday following a one-game absence due to a sore knee. In February, he averaged 18.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 36.9 minutes.
