VIDEO: Magic star Aaron Gordon destroys Giannis Antetokounmpo with poster slam
Peep the clip below to witness Antetokounmpo getting slammed on by Gordon. It wasn’t a clean dunk, but it does qualify for a poster finish. Props should be given to Antetokounmpo for trying to take the charge, but the referees just allowed the play to go on without blowing the whistle.

Although Giannis Antetokounmpo was embarrassed in one play, it was him and the Bucks who had the last laugh after they convincingly won the game against the Magic, 121-99.
The Greek Freak had 22 points, six rebounds and four assists. Khris Middleton had 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Bobby Portis also scored 20 and Bryn Forbes chipped in 14. The Bucks have won two straight games now after losing to the Utah Jazz last Friday.
As for Aaron Gordon, he also had a good night for the Magic with 21 points, five rebounds and eight assists. Nikola Vucevic led all scorers with 28 points and 13 rebounds, while rookie Cole Anthony chipped in 12.
After a strong 6-2 start, the Magic have now fallen to 6-5. Their loss to the Bucks marked their third defeat in a row. However, it is worth noting that guard Markelle Fultz will be out for the season after suffering an ACL injury against the Cleveland Cavaliers last week.
