During Friday’s game against the New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder center Nerlens Noel had a monstrous block on Frank Ntilikina’s dunk attempt.

With 34 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Ntilikina drove down the lane and attempted to dunk over Noel. However, the 25-year-old big man used his lengthy wingspan to deny the Frenchman at the rim.

Nerlens Noel has played exceptionally well in his second season with the Thunder. Despite playing low minutes this season, he has been providing decent production coming off the bench.

He is averaging 7.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 18.4 minutes per game. Noel is also shooting a career-high 69 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range.

Nevertheless, the Thunder are seeking to extend their winning streak against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. They are currently the seventh seed in the Western Conference, boasting a record of 38-24 entering Friday.
