Watch: Victor Oladipo slams in the Magic's first alley-oop of the year

Arron Afflalo connected with the Magic rookie in the third quarter of Wednesday's win over Charlotte.

It took the Orlando Magic 21 full games and two quarters of another to finally get their first alley-oop dunk of the 2013/14 season, but, as the expression goes, better late than never. Video of the play is embedded in this post.

Arron Afflalo and Victor Oladipo connected in the third quarter of Wednesday's win against the Charlotte Bobcats. Afflalo, handling in transition on the left side of the floor, spots the streaking Oladipo on the right side. With no Bobcat impeding his path, Oladipo explodes to the rim and takes flight just outside the restricted circle. He catches Afflalo's lob pass and throws it down with two hands.

It's appropriate that Oladipo would convert Orlando's first alley-oop dunk of the season against Charlotte: Michael Jordan owns the Bobcats, and Oladipo signed a contract to wear Jordan's shoes.

Oladipo finished Wednesday's game with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, and four turnovers in 31 minutes.

The Magic finished the 2012/13 season with 14 alley-oop dunks, or roughly one every six games. They're well off that pace so far in 2013/14, but at least they're on the board now.
