The non-dunk occurred in the final seconds of the third quarter during the Pacers' 129-121 victory on Wednesday at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Indiana led 95-88 at the time.
Oladipo picked the ball up after a Hawks possession and sprinted down the court, going coast-to-coast as he reached the paint. He weaved through several defenders and appeared to have a clear lane as he took flight.
Oladipo put the ball in his right hand and pulled it back for an emphatic throw down, but Anderson stepped in late. The 6-foot-6 swingman used his left hand to send the ball flying to Oladipo's left, far from his intended target.
