Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Fans got another Greek Freak treat Sunday night with an astonishing Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk.

The Greek Freak feat occurred in the third quarter of the Milwaukee Bucks' 117-106 win against the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena in Atlanta.


Milwaukee led Atlanta 83-62 when Antetokounmpo took a pass from forward Kris Middleton with about three minutes remaining in the quarter. Antetokounmpo caught the ball before spinning into the lane and drawing three Hawks defenders. Two of the defenders jumped up to block him as he rolled closer to the rim. Antetokounmpo pulled off a pump fake before making his final effort.

He jumped up despite being contested by Kent Bazemore and John Collins. Despite the obstacles, Antetokounmpo threw down a ridiculous slam with his left hand, putting the Bucks up by 33 points.

Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 33 points and had 11 rebounds and five assists in the victory. He shot 14-of-21 from the floor. He has averaged a league-best 34.7 points per game through six games this season. He also leads the league with a 40.5 player efficiency rating.


The 2016 first-time All-Star also had a monster game on Thursday against the Boston Celtics, posting 28 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block in 42 minutes.

Antetokounmpo and the Bucks host the Oklahoma City Thunder at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
