Watch: Victor Oladipo destroys two defenders with almost insulting dunk

Published Add your comment

The Oklahoma City Thunder fell to Real Madrid 142-137 after overtime on Monday night to get their Spanish tour off to a faltering start.

Despite controlling the affair for three-quarters of the game, the Spanish side made a roaring comeback in the fourth quarter to force OT and, eventually, get the job done.

Madrid dropped 10 more dimes than their visitors, hit 54.1 percent of their threes - nearly 20 percent more than the Thunder - and they managed more blocks and rebounds too.

However, a part from the three-point bomb that forced the game into OT for Madrid, the two standout moments of the match belonged to the Thunder.

We showed you the incredible full-court drive from Russell Westbrook that resulted in one of his trademark jams, but his new backcourt partner Victor Oladipo seemed intent on doing one better.

Picking the rock up outside of the key in OT, the former Orlando Magic man drove straight into the paint and posterised not one, but two defenders as he slammed home a monstrous dunk.

Despite losing Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors, the idea of an explosive and ultra-athletic Oladipo and Westbrook backcourt has eased the pain in some Thunder eyes.

They gave a small insight into what we can expect next season last night and Oladipo finished with a game-high 34 points.
