NBA Play Of The Day: Magic’s E’Twaun Moore Goes Behind-The-Back

uspw_6881588The Orlando Magic haven’t had a great season. In fact, they’re currently on a huge losing streak right now. The Magic are 14-34 and have lost their last 10 games. In last night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers, they started players that NBA fans would have trouble knowing: Josh McRoberts, Moe Harkless, Nikola Vucevic, Ish Smith, and E’Twaun Moore.

But they still are NBA players. And E’Twaun Moore showed some skills. In the second quarter, the Magic got the ball ahead to Moore, where he had Jrue Holiday one-on-one in the frontcourt. Moore drove to the left as Holiday was fronting him. And then Moore did a slick behind-the-back move that left Holiday running to his right. Moore made the easy lay-up after that great move.

That was easily the best move in the game. The rest of the game wasn’t so pretty. The Magic ended up losing to the Sixers in a game nobody else will call an instant classic, 78-61. But, hey, that move by Moore was fantastic, at least.
