Video: Magic's Victor Oladipo blocks dunk attempt by Blazers' Damian Lillard

Magic rookie guard Victor Oladipo pulled off a sensational block on Blazers guard Damian Lillard during Portland's 110-94 home victory on Wednesday.

Midway through the fourth quarter with the Blazers leading 90-82, Portland took off on a two-on-one fast break. Nicolas Batum shoveled the ball to Lillard, who elevated in the middle of the paint for a one-handed slam attempt. Hustling back on defense, Oladipo rose incredibly high to cleanly swat Lillard's dunk try and spark a fast break in the other direction.

Here's a freeze frame look at the block.

In December, Oladipo had a great block of Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony at the rim.

Oladipo finished with 14 points (on 3-for-8 shooting), four rebounds and two assists for Orlando, which fell to 10-25 with its fifth consecutive loss. Arron Afflalo led the Magic with 22 points (on 7-for-14 shooting), five rebounds and four assists.

Lillard finished with 11 points (on 4-for-12 shooting) and seven rebounds. LaMarcus Aldridge led all scorers with 36 point (on 16-for-25 shooting) and nine rebounds as the Blazers improved to 27-9.
