Not many players can track Russell Westbrook in transition — he is lightning fast with the ball.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and his freakish length is one — Westbrook got by the Greek Freak in transition Monday, but the long arms of Antetokounmpo were there to shut Westbrook down.

Plays like that are winning Antetokounmpo a lot of fans. Like this young man, who switched allegiances from Westbrook to Antetokounmpo right after that block.

That kid even got to see a Bucks win over Westbrook and company.
