Malcolm Brogdon may not be all that famous, but he certainly made a name for himself on Tuesday night.

Watch: Bucks Rookie Malcolm Brogdon Dunks On Kyrie Irving And LeBron James In OT Loss To Cavs

The 24-year-old shooting guard– a second-round 2016 draft pick by the Milwaukee Bucks out of Virginia– dunked on two NBA superstars in the Bucks’ 114-108 overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday: LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

The first dunk came on Irving at the end of the first quarter, and cut Cleveland’s lead to 30-21. The second, a stunning reverse dunk on James, was at the end of the third and trimmed the Cavs’ lead to 77-73.

The crowd at BMO Harris Bradley Center went wild after both dunks.

James led the Cavs (20-6) to victory with 34 points, and Irving added 28 for Cleveland, which had lost at Milwaukee 118-101 on Nov. 29. Jabari Parker had 30 points for the Bucks (13-13) and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 25. The two teams meet again Wednesday night in Cleveland.

”Jabari took advantage of some of our smaller guys when we had them on him, getting to the basket, kind of being physical,” Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. ”So we’ve got to do a better job with that matchup.”

Milwaukee scored the final seven points of regulation to send the game into overtime tied at 100.

James sank a go-ahead 3-pointer with 24 seconds remaining in overtime to put Cleveland ahead 110-108.

”That 3 hurt us,” Parker said. ”He’s the best player in the world. He doesn’t care how far it is. You’ve got to respect him.”

Parker was fouled on a layup attempt on the following possession but missed both free throws. Irving scored a pair of free throws with 15.7 seconds left to make it 112-108.

”We get them again tomorrow in Cleveland,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. ”We can watch video, clean up some mistakes and give them another run tomorrow. Understanding that small plays mean everything. Coming up with loose balls, being able to finish plays on the defensive end and, hopefully, a couple more shots go down for us tomorrow.”

The Cavs were missing Kevin Love, who was sidelined with a bruised left knee. Richard Jefferson replaced him. Love (22.3 points per game and team-high 10.7 rebounds per game) is questionable for Wednesday’s home game against the Bucks.

Bucks reserve forward Michael Beasley (8.3 points per game), one of the top contributors off the bench, was out for the third consecutive game with a sprained left foot.

Cavs guard J.R. Smith injured his right thumb late in the first half and did not return. He is scheduled to be examined on Wednesday in Cleveland.

James moved past Moses Malone (27,409 points) into eighth place on the NBA career scoring list with his first basket of the game. James’ 34 points boosted his career total to 27,442. Next up is Shaquille O’Neal with 28,956 points.

Cleveland’s 17 3-pointers matched the most allowed by the Bucks this season. James’ five 3-pointers tied his season high.
