Watch: Victor Oladipo dunks on LeBron James

New, comment

James and his Cavs won the game Friday, but not before Oladipo crammed one on him.

With 6:42 remaining in the third quarter of Friday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo threw down one of the best dunks of his young career, soaring past LeBron James for a thunderous one-hander.

Oladipo's play, video of which is embedded in this post, tied the score at 62 apiece, answered James' three-pointer on Cleveland's previous possession, and ignited a 10-0 Orlando run.

The second-year guard streaks up the right wing and takes a pass from rookie point guard Elfrid Payton. Without even taking a dribble, Oladipo rises to the rim, past the hard-closing James, and hammers it home.

Oladipo finished with 13 points, four rebounds, and eight assists, but his effort wasn't enough to lift the Magic to a victory: James led Cleveland's fourth-quarter comeback and enabled the visitors to take a 98-89 win.
