Giannis brought the crowd to their feet with a big follow dunk in the first half, then made the play of the game with a spectacular open-court block on Shabazz Muhammad in the third quarter. And if that sounds familiar it should -- Muhammad has been victimized by Giannis more than once, which the Greek Freak reminded us of last year during a behind-the-scenes video for Bucks.com.

Heart you, Giannis.
Antetokounmpo (4/11 fg, 3/6 ft, 1/3 threes, 12 pts, 5 rebs, 2 blks) didn't have his jumper working for most of the night; Kevin Garnett didn't seem too concerned about him hoisting from the perimeter and was basically daring him to do it most of the time. But the good news is that he didn't get discouraged. After his block on Muhammad he finished a fast break alley-oop and then calmly stroked an open three, helping the Bucks bust the game open with a 35-17 third quarter.
