Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo​ stunned the Knicks and the Madison Square Garden crowd on Friday with an end-to-end, block-to-dunk sequence that is worth re-watching from all angles. Milwaukee went on to pull off the 99-91 road win.

With a little less than six minutes remaining in the first quarter and the Bucks leading 15-11, Antetokounmpo tracked back on defense as Tim Hardaway Jr. pushed ahead on a fast break. Antetokounmpo blocked Hardaway's wild, spinning attempt at the rim and took off for the races. He used five dribbles, including one behind-the-back dribble to avoid Lance Thomas, to cover the entire length of the court.

Picking up his dribble near the free-throw line, Antetokounmpo took off from well outside the protected circle and soared in for a stretching right-handed dunk, as Cole Aldrich did his best to stay out of the poster.
