Jaylen Brown stares Giannis Antetokounmpo down after dunking on him (Video)
Jaylen Brown showed no fear in challenging one of the most dominant interior defenders in the NBA during Friday’s game.
The Celtics trailed the Bucks for nearly the entirety of the game, but Brown gave the fans at TD Garden something to cheer about in the fourth quarter. He set up on the perimeter, then drove the lane — blowing by Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon in the process. He was challenged by Giannis Antetokounmpo at the rim, but rather than adjusting his shot, Brown dunked all over the Greek Freak.
Brown let Antetokounmpo know about it afterward, too, as he gave his counterpart a pretty epic staredown.

Brown was hit with a technical for staring Antetokounmpo down, but that certainly didn’t take away from the highlight-reel dunk.
