When he found a lane in the paint, Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague probably assumed he was going to have himself an easy dunk.

New York Knicks center Kristaps Porzingis had other ideas.

Teague beat his defender at the top of the key, but when the 6'2" Hawks floor general went mano a mano with the 7'3" Knicks big man in the third quarter, it didn't end well. Porzingis won the battle at the rim, denying Teague of a thunderous slam. 

It would've made for quite an awesome poster had it gone down, but great defense by the rookie kept the printers quiet.
