No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett may have been taken five spots ahead of Nerlens Noel in the 2013 NBA draft, but that didn't matter once they got on the court.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers matched up for an NBA Summer League game Monday, so Noel and Bennett had a chance to face each other for the first time.

Bennett tried to sink a floater over Noel, but that didn't work out so well, and he may have gotten away with a travel to boot.

The video below provides an even better look at the block and a great shot of Bennett's reaction:

The Cavs won 86-77, and both players had solid games. Bennett finished with 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting, adding four rebounds and one assist. Noel had 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting, notching six rebounds, two steals and four blocks.
