Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic hammered a huge left-handed jam in Pau Gasol’s mug Monday night, as the Magic shocked the Bulls 121-114 in Chicago.
Vucevic and teammate Victor Oladipo finished with 33 points apiece in the big road win.
Per the Orlando Sentinel:
“We made great plays and we played fast,” Oladipo said. “That’s why we had a lot of assists. We’ve got to play like that all the time, and it’s got to be a consistent thing no matter what happens. Win or lose, that’s our identity now. That’s the way we play.”
“That was great, man,” Magic point guard Elfrid Payton said (about the dunk over Gasol.) “I didn’t know he was that athletic. I was so happy. I usually never show emotion, and I even got a little riled up.”
“Some of the plays before, I missed a couple of shots,” Vucevic said. “I just wanted to get up there and try to finish as strong as I can. I got up high enough. I just wanted to dunk it. It was a good play for our team, and obviously I don’t do it pretty often. So I tried to do a little surprise with my dunk.”
