Giannins Antetokounmpo overpowers multiple Blazers defenders and throws it down hard
— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) November 22, 2018
The 6-11 powerhouse is truly one of the toughest players in the court today. His superb athleticism earned him the moniker “The Greek Freak.” In this play, he displayed how freakish his strength could be.
He had to overcome not one, not two, but three Blazers defenders in his one handed dunk play in the eight minute mark of the third period.
The right handed jam sent shock waves throughout the arena. An awakened Bucks crowd cheered for Giannis who gained the chance for an and-1 play after being fouled.
The 13-4 Bucks totally dominated the Western Conference leading Blazers, and routed them via a 143-100 victory. Through 41 minutes of taking over the court, Antetokounmpo had a night to remember. He scored 33 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, and dished out nine assists, just missing the triple-double mark.
Giannis got support from teammates Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, and Eric Bledsoe, who all entered the double-figure mark. They scored 21, 16, and 16 points, respectively to contribute in the scoring spree.
Plays like these truly establish Giannis as one of the biggest play makers in the Eastern Conference. Now a two-time All-Star, he is not far from making another trip in the showcase of the stars in February. The Bucks are obviously grateful to have him.
