Watch: Jaylen Brown dunks on Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo

No player in the NBA is better than Giannis Antetokounmpo at making opponents look bad at the rim, but the Milwaukee Bucks star was given a taste of his own medicine during Game 1 against the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

With the Celtics looking to build upon a big lead early in the fourth quarter, Brown cut to the basket and was on the receiving end of a beautiful pass from Gordon Hayward. The only player with a chance to stop Brown from getting to the rim was Giannis, but Brown finished the dunk anyway. He then stared down The Greek Freak.

Antetokounmpo struggled from the jump against Boston, with Celtics big man Al Horford playing incredible defense against him. If that continues for the remainder of the series, it won’t matter how many of his patented acrobatic dunks Giannis can throw down. The Bucks need him at his best.
