Doron Lamb entered the Orlando Magic's game against the Miami Heat on Saturday having played 355 minutes across 33 games without having tallied a single offensive rebound, the most minutes played without such a stat in the 2013/14 season.

But at the 3:44 mark of the fourth quarter, with Orlando down 19 to the two-time defending champs, Lamb grabbed his own missed shot to record his first offensive rebound of the year.

A shooting specialist in his second season out of Kentucky, Lamb is averaging three points per game on 38.5 percent shooting from the floor and 36 percent shooting from three-point distance. He went scoreless on 0-of-6 shooting in 15 minutes against Miami. He was coming off one of his finest performances of the season, having tallied 11 points on 2-of-3 shooting in Orlando's victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

Lamb, a 6-foot-4 guard, last picked up a Magic miss in the second quarter of Orlando's 99-88 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on March 30th, 2013. He went 336 days between offensive boards.
