If Orlando Magic point guard Ish Smith is known for anything around the NBA, it's his speed. But in Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Smith used his speed to launch himself for a huge fast-break throwdown on Eric Bledsoe.
As shown in the highlight above, Smith accelerates in the open floor, heads into the lane, and pounds in an improbable slam while drawing the foul from Bledsoe; during the Magic's halftime telecast on Fox Sports Florida, studio host Paul Kennedy was outspoken in advocating the NBA assess Bledsoe a flagrant foul on the play. The slam brought Orlando to within a point of Los Angeles, 38-37. Smith would airball the free throw.
Smith made the most of his eight first-half minutes against the Clippers, contributing seven points, two rebounds, and two assists with no turnovers. Orlando trails L.A. by a 57-49 margin at halftime, but was a plus-eight with Smith in the game.
