Watch: Victor Oladipo rejects Damian Lillard's dunk attempt

The second overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft emphatically swatted the reigning Rookie of the Year in Wednesday's game.

The Orlando Magic dropped their fifth straight game Wednesday, losing to the Portland Trail Blazers by a 110-94 final, but they at least produced arguably the best highlight of their season when Victor Oladipo blocked a Damian Lillard dunk attempt in the fourth quarter.

The only man back on a two-on-one break, Oladipo must contain Lillard and Nicolas Batum. Batum, filling the right lane, fires a bounce pass to the trailing Lillard, who elevates for a right-handed slam from just outside the restricted area. Oladipo measures the play perfectly and meets Lillard at the apex of his jump, rejecting the ball cleanly back into play with his right hand.

The play fed a Magic fast break which Batum ended with a block of his own, this one of the chase-down variety.

In addition to the block, Oladipo finished with 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, and two steals, shooting 3-of-8 from the floor and 7-of-8 from the foul line. His rejection of Lillard gives him 26 blocks in 35 appearances.
