After a back and forth battle between the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks, game four of the NBA Finals came down to the wire. With 1:28 remaining on the clock, Khris Middleton drilled a jumper to give the Bucks a narrow two-point advantage in crunch time.

On the next possession, Giannis Antetokounmpo proved why he’s been named to the NBA All-Defensive Team for the last three seasons.

With the Bucks clinging to the lead, Devin Booker drove through the lane before throwing a lob to his 6-foot-11 center Deandre Ayton. While it looked like Ayton had an open run for punching in the alley-oop attempt, Antetokounmpo was lurking.

The two-time Most Valuable Player went from playing help defense on Booker to fearlessly flying at Ayton in a matter of seconds. Antetokounmpo quickly met Ayton at the rim for a highlight-reel block.

Following the block, the Bucks went on to win the game by six points, 109-103. The series is now tied, 2-2.

Here is a look at multiples angles of Antetokounmpo’s block via @NBA on Twitter:
