#NBATopShotThis: Giannis' monster block

Giannis Antetokounmpo had about five different plays from tonight's game to pick from, including his huge dunk in the final seconds, but this rejection on Ivica Zubac takes the cake.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year finished with four blocks on the night, none better than this one. With the Clippers leading 90-85 with 8:11 to go in the fourth quarter, Zubac rolled to the rim and took off, ready to throw it down with two hands, but Antetokounmpo had other ideas, flying in from the corner to swat it away.

The timing, the confidence, the air time — Giannis pulled off the cleanest of blocks.

He finished the game with 36 points, 14 rebounds, five assists and four blocks as the Bucks made it five-straight wins.

The 26-year-old already has a ton of plays on the Top Shot marketplace, ranging from $220 USD to as much as $145,000 (USD).
