MILWAUKEE — It is not possible for a human to see the flight of the ball sail over his head, twist his body around, rely on fast-twitch fibers and reflexes to crouch in position, then leap high and block a dunk attempt by powerful a 6-foot-11 man off a lob, all in the smoldering heat of the critical closing stretch in an NBA Finals game.
Only a Freak can pull that off.
If the Bucks do capture this championship series that’s now all square at two games apiece, The Giannis Antetokounmpo Block Of Game 4 might stand as the signature play. Sure, there’s more basketball to go, and Lord knows what’s left from Giannis and — my goodness — Devin Booker, and how this topsy-turvy Finals will finish.
With that block, Giannis saw his reputation soar as a defensive ace and also as a big-stage player. The previous two games he scored 40-plus points. This game, he delivered at the opposite rim. He is why the Bucks stand a chance in this series after falling behind 2-0. Via NBA.com
