Video: Magic’s Victor Oladipo throws down 360 dunk vs. Nets
Rookie guard Victor Oladipo put an exclamation mark on the Magic’s 107-86 home victory over the Nets Sunday by throwing down a 360 degree dunk in transition.
With a little more than 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and the Magic up 80-61, Oladipo stepped in to poke the ball free from Nets guard Deron Williams. No foul was called — even though there was significant contact between the two players and Williams doubled over in pain after the collision — and the No. 2 pick in the 2013 draft was off to the races.
Gathering the ball outside the three-point line, Oladipo cruised in uncontested to the protected circle, where he rose for a counterclockwise 360 degree spinning dunk with two hands. The Amway Center reacted instantly to Oladipo’s slam, and he patted his chest and shouted to the sidelines to feed the excitement.
Oladipo finished with 19 points (on 8-for-13 shooting), six rebounds, four assists, two steals and seven turnovers in 21 minutes off the bench. Nikola Vucevic paced the Magic with 19 points (on 9-for-14 shooting) and 12 rebounds. Orlando improved to 2-2.
Brook Lopez led the Nets with 21 points (on 8-for-15 shooting) and six rebounds in 33 minutes. Brooklyn fell to 1-2.
