Wow. Just when I thought Paul Pierce had the Dunk of the Night, Orlando Magic rookie sensation Victor Oladipo threw down a 2-handed 360 dunk in fast-break. Granted, it looks like Oladipo fouled Deron Williams when he got the steal, but the dunk was an insane display of Oladipo's athleticism.

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson breaks Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick down just a bit off the dribble, gets him in a post-up to draw in the defense, then hits Brook Lopez with a perfect feed for an open dunk. It was the second possession in a row Johnson hit Lopez for an open dunk. Watch:
