OLADIPO STARTS TO WEAVE MAGIC

ORLANDO

MAGIC 129

NEW YORK
KNICKS 121 
(OT)

Now 57 games into his NBA career, Victor Oladipo does not look like a rookie anymore. And he does not sound like one, either. His confidence is growing.

Oladipo (right), the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft last year, had 30 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds while carrying the Orlando Magic to a 129-121 double-overtime victory over the New York Knicks yesterday morning (Singapore time).

In the best match of his budding career, Oladipo overshadowed the 44-point effort of Knicks All-Star Carmelo Anthony.

"No question, I've come a long way. But I'm not even scratching the surface right now of what I can do. I want to be the greatest that's ever played this game. My goal is pretty simple," he said.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said: "He was special tonight. It was fun to be a part of. He was good in a lot of ways."

The Magic (17-40) snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Knicks. - Reuters.
