Arron Afflalo challenges three Suns defenders on the fast break and comes out on top in this highlight from Orlando's victory on Sunday.

Sunday night, Arron Afflalo got the ball on the fast break and saw his Orlando Magic didn't exactly have numbers.

He didn't exactly care, either. Afflalo led a one-on-three break into the teeth of the Phoenix Suns' transition defense, bowled over Goran Dragić, scooped in a righty layup, and drew the foul. His acrobatic finish brought Orlando to within three points of the visiting Suns, 71-68, and the free throw could close the gap by another point.

He drained the free throw to keep Orlando's momentum building. The Magic would go on to outscore Phoenix, 40-20, in the third period to take command of the game, one in which they trailed by as many as 14 points in the first half. Afflalo scored 10 of his season-high 22 points in the third quarter as the Magic surged into control.
