CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The NBA is on notice.

The Cleveland Cavaliers knocked off the defending NBA champions on Wednesday with a 115-99 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The point differential was impressive, but it may not have stood out as much as an emphatic slam dunk from Cavaliers rookie Evan Mobley over the two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Social media erupted after the play.

Antetokounmpo is listed at 6 feet 11 inches tall.

The 30-19 Cavaliers are currently third in the Eastern Conference rankings.

“This is not the Cleveland we knew over the past few years,” Antetokounmpo, of the 2021 champion Bucks, acknowledged to reporters after the game.
