Jrue Holiday had a remarkable performance in Game 5 123-119 win over the Phoenix Suns. The Milwaukee Bucks star guard’s performance was capped off by a jaw-dropping alley-oop pass to Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Antetokounmpo got high up and dunked the ball to seal the game for the Bucks, who now have a 3-2 lead in the Finals series.

“Giannis took off and he was calling for the ball,” Holiday told reporters. “So at that point, I just threw it as high as I could and only where Giannis could go get it.

He went up there [and] got it. They don’t call him the Freak for nothing. I threw it as high as I could.”

Holiday finished the game with 27 points and 13 assists, shooting an impressive 12-of-20 from the field after going 4-of-20 in Game 4. He also had four rebounds, three steals and one block to conclude a fantastic performance.
