Video: Rockets’ Clint Capela dunks all over Giannis Antetokounmpo
Giannis Antetokounmpo is having the best season of his NBA career, but the Milwaukee Bucks superstar has also found himself on the wrong side of highlight reels. Antetokounmpo was dunked on anew during their game against the Houston Rockets at the Fiserv Forum on Tuesday.
Rockets center Clint Capela received a timely bounce pass from James Harden early in the third period. Capela found himself wide open and immediately went for dunk. Antetokounmpo tried to block the dunk attempt, but it was too late, as Capela slammed all over him to stun the Bucks crowd inside the arena.

It can be remembered that Giannis Antetokounmpo was also dunked on earlier in the season. New York Knicks forward Mario Hezonja threw down a nasty flush over Antetokounmpo in their showdown in December. The highlight dunk went viral, as Hezonja also stepped over Giannis after the slam.

The gesture from Hezonja drew the ire of Antetokounmpo, who felt disrespected. The Bucks superstar told reporters back then that he will punch Hezonja if he attempts to step over him again in future meetings.
For Clint Capela and the Rockets, meanwhile, the dunk was only one of few bright spots that they can take from the game. Houston failed to live up to expectations, as they bow down to Milwaukee in the end, 108-94.
