These images of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s game-sealing dunk in Game 5 of the NBA Finals are sensational.
A pivotal Game 5 in the NBA Finals lived up to all the hype, as the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks gave us an amazing finish in the fourth quarter. The Bucks clawed back from being down double digits with the help of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton. All had over 20 points, helping Milwaukee gain a 3-2 advantage heading home for Game 6.
Perhaps the best play of the night came from two of the Buck three stars.
Late in the fourth, Holiday stole the ball from Devin Booker, pushed it upcourt, and lobbed it to Antetokounmpo for what would be the game-clinching dunk. Giannis’ leaping ability was on full display, soaring through the are for a sensational dunk.
The pictures of the Greek Freak’s put-down from Getty Images were simply sensational, capturing that moment in time where Giannis took flight for the dunk.
Look at these Getty Images of Giannis’ Antetokounmpo’s game-sealing alley-oop in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
Many have watched Giannis’ exceptional alley-oop video, as it caused shock waves through NBA Twitter. However, even though the video is great, it doesn’t give the slam its proper respect. Getty Images captured some images of the play, and they are phenomenal.
Even the causal eye can appreciate the camera work from these photographers. It was a beautiful play captured beautifully by skilled camera people. If Game 6 gives us anything close to the glorious alley-oop, hopefully, the cameras are so those moments in time can last forever.
