There are great dunks, and then there’s what Willie Cauley-Stein threw down on Wednesday night.
Cauley-Stein’s epic slam was the highlight of the Sacramento Kings’ 108-92 win over the Boston Celtics.
The second-year pro caught the alley-oop pass from Darren Collison, cocked it back, then slammed it home with his right hand.
Cauley-Stein supplemented his great dunk with an impressive game. He scored 14 points on 5-8 shooting while pulling down five rebounds and dishing out four assists.
The Kings’ win, which ended a seven-game Celtics winning streak, came without All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, who was suspended by the NBA for the game. The suspension was mainly because Cousins shoved Chicago Bulls assistant coach Jim Boylen in the Kings’ previous game.
