Usually, you'd think the Dunk of the Night should actually count. But for this beautiful finish of a Greivis Vasquez lob by Derrick Williams—which was ultimately disallowed by the referees on account of a foul—we'll gladly make an exception.
Luckily, Williams was able to slip in another slam immediately thereafter, on an almost identical play, no less.
Unfortunately for the Sacramento Kings, it wasn't enough to stave off the Chris Paul-less Los Angeles Clippers, who prevailed in overtime, 104-98. Still, the Kings have to be pleased with Williams, who tallied 12 points, six rebounds, four assists and a handful of flying finishes in his triumphant return to his home state of California.
We're all about the dunks over on Twitter.
