Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat made a spectacular block against the Milwaukee Bucks worthy enough to be included as one of the five nominated for “Block of the Year.”

The other four blocks competing for the honor were by:

Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks) vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans) vs. Utah Jazz

Kristaps Porzingis (New York Knicks) vs. Phoenix Suns

Marquese Chriss (Phoenix Suns) vs. Atlanta Hawks

The strictly fan-based award votes can be submitted on NBA.com, and on social media sites with the hashtag #AwardName plus the first and last name of their choice, for example #BlockOfTheYear Bam Adebayo.
