Willie Cauley-Stein’s Nasty Dunk vs Boston Brought Back Some Great Kentucky Memories
Playing without DeMarcus Cousins, the Sacramento Kings snapped the Boston Celtics’ 7-game win streak with a 108-92 victory on Wednesday! One of the many reasons was an impressive off-the-bench performance from Willie Cauley-Stein, who had 14 points (5-8 fg, 4-4 ft), 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 of the nastiest dunks in recent Kings history.
Now, Willie has had a few nasty dunks during his young NBA career so far – he had a nice one against the Cavs just a few weeks ago and a nicer poster on Marquese Chriss earlier this season.
But the nastiness of his nail-in-the-coffin oop against Boston brought me back to his Kentucky days, when it seemed like he was making a new poster every game. So in honor of the Kings win and Willie’s big game, let’s go back to Kentucky for Throwback Thursday.
