Victor Oladipo’s career night impresses Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade
Victor Oladipo was on fire Sunday, with a career game versus the Denver Nuggets. Finishing with 47 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, and one block, Oladipo led the Indiana Pacers to an overtime victory, 126-116, and turned a lot of heads with his stellar play.
His effort’s did not go unnoticed as Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade reacted to his performance via their Twitter accounts, even lobbying for Oladipo to be named an All-Star this season.

Through 25 games, Victor Oladipo is averaging career-best numbers of 23.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.1 blocks in 33.5 minutes per game. More importantly, he has been the catalyst for the Pacers, who have been one of the surprise teams this year so far, with a 16-11 record.
The Pacers will have two days to rest before facing off against Oladipo’s former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. It remains to be seen if the electrifying guard can build on the momentum he currently has, but with how he has been performing this year, it won’t come as a complete surprise if he’ll have another impressive game.
