A huge put-back dunk by Thanasis Antetokounmpo of Panathinaikos OPAP Athens in a Greek derby has been voted the Round 5 winner in the Fans Choice Play of the Decade survey!

Antetokounmpo's heroics for the Greens took place on November 9, 2018 during Round 6 of the 2018-19 regular season. Panathinaikos was dominating 65-57 in a packed OAKA, where with 1:25 to go in the third period, Matt Lojeski drove to the basket for the Greens, but his miss was put back in style by Antetokounmpo, who was just running from a defensive play in which he had just attempted to block Zach LeDay on the other end. The dunk got the stands at OAKA rocking for a momentum that would allow the hosts to defeat Olympiacos Piraeus 93-80.

His is the fifth play to advance to the finals in mid-September. Five more finalists are yet to be decided, so vote now to make sure your favorites get their due in the Fans Choice Play of the Decade survey!
