An injury to Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo in the third quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals had everyone holding their breath.

Giannis, who attempted to block a shot on defense, landed awkwardly while sandwiched in between two Hawks players in the paint and immediately fell to the floor in pain.

Atlanta fans in attendance at State Farm Arena showed their support for the opposing star, which former Warrior Andre Iguodala appreciated. As did Draymond Green, who retweeted Iguodala's tweet. 

After watching the replay, there was speculation that Antetokounmpo might have sustained a serious knee injury. The Bucks have announced that he would miss the rest of the game with a hyperextended knee.
