Orlando Magic point guard Elfrid Payton and Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul recently went head-to-head on the football field, but unlike the basketball court, it was Payton who burned Paul.

The two decided to test their skills on the gridiron following an offseason workout. Payton, who has three inches on the 6’ 0” Paul, put on his wheels and beat the Clippers point guard down the field to make this incredible one-handed grab.

But Payton didn’t completely dominate. When it was Paul’s turn to sprint downfield on the offensive end, he made Payton pay.
