Putback layup? Nah. Sacramento Kings point guard Rajon Rondo lives life on the wild side.

In the waning minutes of a close game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, Rondo skied for a rebound after Rudy Gay missed a three-pointer. Instead of putting it back up, he flung it behind his back out to the perimeter.

If someone throws you a fancy pass, you must make the shot. Marco Belinelli obliged, drilling a three-pointer to give Sacramento a 93-86 lead with three minutes left.

Remember when everyone thought Rondo was done?
