NBA All-Star 2020: 'I feel like I should have two trophies' - Aaron Gordon after loss to Derrick Jones Jr. in the AT&T Slam Dunk Contest

Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon scored a 50 on five of his six dunks during the All-Star Saturday Night. However, in the final round which included two dunk-offs, Gordon lost out to Miami Heat's Derrick Jones Jr. 198-197.

In the clinching dunk, Jones Jr. threw down a windmill dunk from near the free-throw line and scored 48.

In response, Gordon dunked over Celtics rookie 7-5 Tacko Fall but fell one point short, receiving 47.

This was the second time Gordon finished as the runner-up after also finishing second to Zach LaVine in 2016.

"I still feel like I'm one of the best, if not the best dunker in the world, so I still feel that," Gordon said to ESPN's Rachel Nichols after the loss.

As per ESPN Stats & Info, Gordon joins Dominique Wilkins as the only two players to finish as runners-up in the Dunk Contest twice. However, Wilkins did win it on two other occasions - 1985, 1990.

"We're here to do four dunks. It should be the best out of four dunks. I did four straight 50s - five straight 50s. It's over. It's a wrap. Let's go home," Gordon said in the press conference.

He concluded the presser by saying - "My next go is going to be to try and win the 3-Point contest."
