VIDEO: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo blows by Marcus Smart with the Eurostep, throws it down past Daniel Theis

Bucks-Giannis-Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks star and reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo possesses a unique blend of length and athleticism that makes him nearly impossible to stop in the open floor.

When you essentially force Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart to quit on a play, you are on another planet from an offensive standpoint.

Giannis Antetokounmpo did just that during Milwaukee’s game against the Celtics on Thursday night, blowing by Smart with a Eurostep before hammering down a dunk with Boston center Daniel Theis contesting:

Smart tries to get in a defensive position to stop Antetokounmpo from getting into the paint, but the smaller guard is helpless to prevent the “Greek Freak” from getting to the rim.

Once he is at the rim, there is no defending Antetokounmpo at all, as Theis experienced firsthand. He is simply too strong and long with his reach and angles.

The Bucks already jumped out to a 20-point lead over the Celtics with 8:50 still to play in the second quarter.
