WATCH: Victor Oladipo sends Shelvin Mack packing
The Orlando Magic have some bright young players in their blueprint of what appears like it could be a tough NBA team again in the near future. One of those bright spots in rookie guard, Victor Oladipo. Oladipo won fans over on draft night, when he spoke of the work ethic he’d bring to Orlando.
Here’s a small sample of the work Victor puts in on a nightly basis for the Magic. Oladipo chases down Shelvin Mack and tosses his layup attempt into the first row.
Vucevic was blocked down on one end, Mack ended up with the ball and a clear path to the hoop. Victor Oladipo caught up and sent his shot attempt away. You’ve got to love the hustle from this young man.
The Magic led the Hawks 54-46 at this point, with about 30 seconds to go in the first half. Orlando held on to win 109-102 behind 21 points from Aaron Afflalo and 16 points, 14 rebounds from Nikola Vucevic.
