Gordon is No.5 in Thorpe's latest...

One of the many things I really like about Gordon right now is that he's not falling in love with his terrific jumper. Especially in late-clock situations. Most guys will count down the seconds and loft a pretty shot, but Gordon is thinking "Attack, attack, attack." This earns him more free throws and some layup attempts, too, when the defense is focused on not fouling. Sure, there are times to take the outside shot, but with his skill level and athleticism, taking the ball to the rim is sound strategy.
