Oladipo, the No. 2 pick in last June’s NBA Draft, followed up the first preseason game of his career on Wednesday with another strong showing for the Magic (0-2). Oladipo once again stuffed the stat sheet and sparked a Magic offense that carved up the Cavs (2-0) early in the night. But Bennett stole the show in the fourth by scoring 14 of his 16 points in the final period.
Oladipo finished with a team-high 18 points, eight rebounds, two 3-pointers and three assists. Center Nikola Vucevic had 15 points, while Arron Afflalo chipped in 14 points on an efficient five-of-six shooting night. Many of the Magic veterans didn’t play in the fourth quarter when Cleveland surged into the lead.
``We’re showing flashes of what we want to do out there, but we have to get more consistent with our approach,’’ said Maurice Harkless, who had 10 points and three rebounds.
