One of those Celtics defenders was All-Star Kyrie Irving, who Antetokounmpo simply pushed away before completing the baseline throw down. The "Greek Freak" finish came in the fourth quarter of the Bucks' 98-97 triumph on Thursday at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
The Bucks had the ball in transition with about 4:25 remaining in the third frame when Khris Middleton threw a long pass to Antetokounmpo, finding the NBA MVP candidate under the basket. The "Greek Freak" appeared trapped beneath the rim and was swarmed with defenders, including Irving.
Antetokounmpo nudged Irving out of his way before rising up and throwing in a big time right-handed dunk over Marcus Morris. He then ran into Irving on his way back to defend.
He finished the bout with a game-high 30 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. Irving led the Celtics with 22 points. Al Hortford had 21 points, 17 rebounds and five assists for Boston.
