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.

Ayton was just a few inches away from slamming down a game-tying dunk with 1:15 left when Antetokounmpo, who had been covering Booker before the pass, leaped from several feet away to deny one of the Suns’ most dynamic offensive weapons at the rim. 

Milwaukee went on to win the game 109-103 to even the series at two games apiece. The teams will now travel back to Arizona for Game 5 on Saturday.

The Bucks’ season isn’t technically on the line since this isn’t an elimination game, but this is as close to a must win as you can get. As a reminder, no team has ever overcome an
