Watch: Victor Oladipo blocks Carmelo Anthony's dunk attempt

The Magic rookie made an alert defensive play in the first half of Friday's game.

Victor Oladipo's made several highlight-reel plays in his rookie season, many of them on the offensive side of the ball. However, in the first quarter of Friday's game against the New York Knicks, the Orlando Magic guard made a spectacular defensive play.

After a Knicks miss, New York point guard Raymond Felton spots Carmelo Anthony, the league's second-leading scorer, cutting to the basket from the top of the arc. Oladipo meets the eight-time All-Star at the rim and cleanly blocks his dunk attempt.

The block was Oladipo's second of the night; he previously swatted an Iman Shumpert reverse layup try.
