VIDEO: Grizzlies’ Kyle Anderson posterizes Giannis Antetokounmpo
The 6-foot-9 Anderson, who is really not known for his athleticism, showcased some hops made possible by a beautiful give-and-go play with De’Anthony Melton.
With the game tied at 57-apiece at the 1:09 mark of the second quarter, the home team maximized their numbers on the break to go up by two. Anderson brought the ball down court and shoveled a pass to Melton.

SlowMo got the ball right back as he made a cut to the rim, where he was met by the reigning MVP. Not to be denied, Anderson rose to the occasion and threw down a massive two-handed hammer right over the outstretched arm of the Greek Freak.
The entire Grizzlies bench was on its feet after the bucket, as Ja Morant, who was in streets clothes, was visibly pumped up from the play against the Bucks star and reigning NBA MVP.
