Video: Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard posterizes Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo with another lefty slam
With the Raptors leading midway through the fourth quarter, Leonard sent a strong statement to Giannis with an emphatic left-handed dunk — seemingly telling the Greek Freak that he’s there to win it all and that he can’t stop him.
Sure enough, Drake, the Raptors bench and the whole Scotiabank Arena rose to their feet with the massive dunk that would undoubtedly go down as the highlight of the game.

Of course, it’s not the first time Kawhi dunked on Giannis. In fact, in Game 4 of the series, Leonard also embarrassed Antetokounmpo with a massive jam plus the foul.
Leonard has undoubtedly gotten the better of Antetokounmpo in the series, particularly in the past three matches before the pivotal Game 6. With The Klaw guarding him, the Bucks superstar was unable to produce his normal numbers and impact the game like he usually does.
From Game 3 to 5, Antetokoumpo averaged only 20.3 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Before that, he was putting up 27.1 points on an efficient 51.3 percent from the field.
It’s safe to say Leonard owned Antetounmpo on both ends of the floor in the series.
