Watch: Victor Oladipo highlights in 2014 Rising Stars Challenge

The Magic rookie scored 13 points in defeat. Take a look at his key plays here.

Orlando Magic rookie Victor Oladipo scored 13 points in the 2014 Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night, but his Team Webber fell to Team Hill in a 142-136 barnburner. Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond of Team Hill earned MVP honors for his 30-point, 25-rebound outburst.

The video embedded in this post shows all six of Oladipo's field goals as well as three of his four assists. His lob to New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis for a one-handed dunk stands as arguably his strongest highlight, but one could make a solid case for Oladipo's own one-handed dunk moments earlier.

Somewhat surprisingly, the Indiana product did not match Nik Vučević's output from the 2013 Rising Stars Challenge: the Magic big man scored 15 points in that contest. Given that these games tend to reward perimeter play, Oladipo's modest production comes as a surprise. Then again, he logged just 20 minutes in the game, sixth on his nine-man team.
