Twitter reacts to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s block of Deandre Ayton in Game 4 of Bucks-Suns NBA Finals

In a pivotal moment late in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, Giannis Antetokounmpo seemed to defy what we know about physics.

The Bucks had just taken a two-point lead over the Suns with a jump shot by Khris Middleton, but Phoenix wasn’t going away. Devin Booker lobbed a perfectly placed alley-oop pass to Deandre Ayton, who charged uncovered to the rim.

It was quickly dubbed “Hail Murray,” even though elements of the play weren’t traditional Hail Mary aspects, and also ignoring the crucial role in the play Hopkins played. But it’s got a nice ring to it, so that’s fine. This is our breakdown of “Hail Murray,” one of the greatest game-winning
