Giannis Antetokounmpo emerged victorious in a duel between two of the NBA’s most athletic players as he unleashed an almighty dunk over Blake Griffin.
Although Griffin outscored Antetokounmpo by 31 to 15, it was the Greek Freak who went home with bragging rights.
Not only did Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks cruise to a 115-92 victory over the Detroit Pistons, but the MVP-favourite produced the play of the night at Griffin’s expense.
Attempting to defend Antetokounmpo on the baseline, Griffin leapt in an attempt to block the 24-year-old, but only succeeded in giving away a foul as the ball was viciously dunked on him.
Antetokounmpo’s 27 points per game, along with averages of 13 rebounds and six assists, have led the Bucks to a 16-7 start and second place in the Eastern Conference.
