Giannis Antetokounmpo made one of the best three plays in the entire 2021 NBA playoffs on Wednesday night. The Greek Freak denied Deandre Ayton at the rim when the Phoenix Suns center was ready to complete an alley-oop.
Just when everybody thought he would make a spectacular play, Giannis told otherwise, getting a big, crucial block for the Milwaukee Bucks. They ended up winning the game, tying the Finals 2-2.
Antetokounmpo's block was one of the biggest events of the night. Everybody had something to say about it, even his peers. Several NBA stars, media members, and more took to social media to talk about the block, explaining how important it could be for the future of the series.
Even members of the Milwaukee Bucks couldn't believe what they just witnessed. Antetokounmpo starred in one of the best moments in NBA Finals history with that incredible block.
After the game, the 2x NBA MVP said he just tried to make a play, admitting he was ready to get dunked on. Fortunately for him and his team, that didn't happen, and the Bucks secured their second win of the series.
Now they'll try to keep this momentum entering Game 5 in Phoenix. They are heading back to Arizona, hoping to steal the home-court advantage and finish the job in Game 6.
