VIDEO: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo throws down the nasty putback on an Al Horford blocked shot
Peep the clip below to see Antetokounmpo’s nasty putback. Khris Middleton looked like he tossed an alley-oop for Antetokounmpo. Horford was able to deflect the pass but fortunately for the Bucks, it hit the backboard and Antetokounmpo had the presence of mind to rise up for the nasty putback jam.
That was MEAN, Giannis 😤 pic.twitter.com/MEzFBXGGMa
