Giannis Antetokounmpo stopping Deandre Ayton can be proven a turning point for the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals

Between a 3-1 deficit and a 2-2 tie, Giannis Antetokounmpo ensured the 2021 NBA Finals are evened ahead of Game 5. His big block against Deandre Ayton on Wednesday rocked the Phoenix Suns center and has since been having a similar effect on Twitter.

“We wanted this bad and the team showed it tonight,” explained the Greek Freak summing up the exciting contest. He also admitted to initially thinking he will get dunked on, but it was worth that risk.

The Milwaukee Bucks were up by two points with 1:28 remaining. That rejection prevented the visitors from tying Game 4 at 101-101 and paved the way for the W.

Game 5 is planned to be held at the opposite venue on Saturday.
