Hezonja stepped over the league's dunk leader at Madison Square Garden
Knicks forward Mario Hezonja added some flare to his fastbreak dunk against the Bucks on Saturday, stepping over Giannis Antetokounmpo after the slam. Hezonja pushed past Khris Middleton and had only a trailing Antetokounmpo to beat at the tin, rising up for a massive jam after a smooth eurostep.
Hezonja scored over the NBA's leading dunker in Saturday's battle at Madison Square Garden. Antetokounmpo entered Saturday night with 97 dunks in 20 games, leading Rudy Gobert by seven. Antetokounmpo has a history of huge slams at MSG, jumping over Tim Hardaway Jr. for a mammoth dunk.

Antetokounmpo was asked about the play following the game, and was perturbed. He said he would punch Hezonja if he tried to step over him again.
New York won the game 136–134, improving to 8–16 on the season. Milwaukee fell to 15–7, but remains second in the Eastern Conference.
