Giannis, Leonard, Turner Headline Posterizing Friday’s Top Plays NBA Playoffs

Just three games on Thursday night (Friday morning IST), but the exciting Playoff action left us thrilled. The earliest game involved the defending champions taking their title defense on the road to Indiana. Cleveland capped off a historic comeback to win Game 3, but this poster dunk by Myles Turner deserves recognition:

From a comeback in Indiana to a blowout in Milwaukee. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks absolutely demolished the Raptors, right from the first quarter. However, the top play of the game came from the third period. Milwaukee was up 30 late in the quarter and Antetokounmpo swatted this Norman Powell shot attempt with absolute authority:

This play, courtesy Bucks’ rookie Thon Maker, was in close competition with the Antetokounmpo’s block:
