Charlotte Bobcats big man Al Jefferson is known for his tissue-soft touch around the basket, but that skill wasn't on display when he lofted a hook shot that hit the top of the backboard against the Sacramento Kings Tuesday.

The 28-year-old entered the night averaging 15.4 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. He signed a three-year, $40.5 million contract with Charlotte prior to the season.
