Watch: DeQuan Jones, Jameer Nelson Hook Up for Alley-Oop

Friday night, the Pacers lost track of DeQuan Jones in transition, and the rookie made them pay with a two-handed slam off an assist from Jameer Nelson.

The Orlando Magic topped the Indiana Pacers, 112-96, on Friday for their first victory of the 2012/13 preseason. And while there are plenty of highlights to be found--six Orlando players scored in double-figures, and the team shot 54.9 percent from the field--none was more electric than DeQuan Jones' alley-oop dunk from Jameer Nelson.

After a Pacers turnover, the Magic outlet the ball to Nelson on the left side of the floor. Jones leaked up the right side, and no Indy player managed to plug it up. Nelson found Jones with a pinpoint lob pass, and Jones flushed it easily and with both hands.

One can hardly fault Magic play-by-play man Dennis Neumann for misidentifying Jones as Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Daequan Cook; it's easy, even for professionals, to lose one's faculties in the immediate aftermath of a highlight-reel play.

Jones, an undrafted rookie from Miami (FL), is averaging 10.2 points per game in five preseason appearances, shooting 60.5 percent from the floor. His consistent, efficient productivity may have given him the inside track to the Magic's 15th and final roster spot.
