Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen adds Giannis Antetokounmpo to his list of players who have tried to dunk on him and failed miserably.

Jarrett Allen is making a name for himself as one of the best shot blockers in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets center has no fear when it comes to contesting at the rim. Giannis Antetokounmpo is the latest victim Allen adds to his list.

Blake Griffin and LeBron James have already figured out that dunking on Allen is no easy task. The Greek Freak is one of the most ferocious dunkers in the league, but Allen has shown no fear when going up against the best dunkers in the league.

Of course, Antetokounmpo followed up the rejection with two monster dunks in transition. But that won’t deter Allen from going for the big block at the next opportunity.

Allen still has a long way to go as a player. He’s raw offensively and has games where he’s a non-factor on that end, but he is showing flashes of brilliance almost every night. On Saturday, his denial of Antetokounmpo is further evidence of his ability to protect the rim.
