Aaron Gordon soared over his mascot, but nobody flies higher than Zach LaVine in the slam dunk contest.LaVine was perfect just a little longer than Gordon and won a thrilling final event to cap off an entertaining NBA All-Star Saturday. LaVine captured his second straight dunk title – and a second trophy in two nights.The night – and the first two nights of this first All-Star weekend held outside the U.S. – ended with a celebration for LaVine, who won the MVP award in Friday night in the Rising Stars Challenge for rookies and second-year players.He and Gordon traded perfect scores of 50 for the previous few rounds after advancing to the final, but the Orlando Magic rookie mustered only a 47 in his last attempt.But he may have had the most memorable dunks of the night with some help from the Magic's mascot – aptly named Stuff the Magic Dragon.LaVine became the first repeat dunk champion since Nate Robinson, but Curry wasn't even the best on his own team after setting a final-round record last year.
