Watch: Victor Oladipo blocks Thaddeus Young's dunk

The Magic rookie blocked another dunk attempt Wednesday.

Rookie guard Victor Oladipo made another highlight-reel play Wednesday night as his Orlando Magic defeated the Philadelphia 76ers by a 101-90 final.

In the play, video of which is embedded in this story, Oladipo rotates off fellow rookie Michael Carter-Williams, sizes up the driving Thaddeus Young, and meets the veteran gadget forward at the rack in time to reject his dunk attempt. Tobias Harris collects the rebound. Orlando's ensuing possession resulted in two foul shots for Doron Lamb, which points provide the game's final score.

Young finds himself in good company among players whose dunks Oladipo has turned away in his first professional season: he previously swatted dunk tries from Carmelo Anthony and Damian Lillard, two All-Stars. With a per-game average of 0.6 blocks, Oladipo leads all players 6-foot-5 and shorter in that category.
