Willie Trill’s Putback Dunk: With just under 6 minutes left in the second quarter the Kings were leading the Oklahoma City Thunder 50-48. During this time Kings point guard Darren Collison drove down the lane and threw up highly contested layup. The layup missed, but hit the rim once before being grabbed by rookie Willie Cauley-Stein for the putback one-handed dunk.
What made this play so impressive was how athletic of a play it was for Cauley-Stein to complete. Coming from around the top of the key, Cauley-Stein was unable to grab the loose ball at the top of the basket and had to grab the ball beneath him and use his long arms to still be able to dunk it in the hoop.
