Victor Oladipo, Nicolas Batum Held A Block Party In One Wild Sequence (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Orlando rookie Victor Oladipo held a block party on Wednesday night, but Portland's Nicolas Batum seemed to invite himself.

Leading 90-82 late in the fourth quarter, the Blazers forced a turnover and turned it into a two-on-one fast break with Oladipo as the only Magic player to beat. Blazers star Damian Lilliard went up for a monster one-handed dunk, but the former Indiana star refused to be posterized and rejected him.

The Magic turned Oladipo's block into a fast break as Arron Afflalo went one-on-one with Portland's Mo Williams. That's when Batum joined the action. As Afflalo shot over Williams, the versatile small forward pulled off an amazing chase-down block.

Batum finished the game with a triple-double (14 points, 14 assists, 10 rebounds) to go along with his rejection as the Blazers defeated the Magic, 100-94.
