Watch: Victor Oladipo hits game-winning shot for Magic against 76ers

In Thursday's Orlando Pro Summer League contest, Oladipo shook Michael Carter-Williams and then stepped back to hit the winning bucket for Orlando.

Victor Oladipo rescued the Orlando Magic on Thursday afternoon in Orlando Pro Summer League play. His team needed a basket to beat the Philadelphia 76ers and avoid having to play the Brooklyn Nets on Friday to determine the ninth-place team in the tournament.

So Oladipo isolated against Michael Carter-Williams, whose Syracuse club sent Oladipo's Indiana Hoosiers home in the Sweet 16 of the 2013 NCAA tournament, in the center of the floor and went to work. The rookie guard drove to his left, lowered his shoulder into Carter-Williams, and stepped back for a long jumper.

He drained the shot, giving the Magic a 79-78 lead with 4.4 seconds to play and prompting Orlando season-ticketholders viewing the game from seats overlooking the floor to start chanting his name.

Via the NBA's official YouTube channel, you can watch video of the game-deciding play above.

Oladipo finished with a game-high 24 points, to go with three rebounds, six assists, and three steals.

The Magic will battle the Boston Celtics for seventh place on Friday. Tipoff is set for 2 PM.
