Kings forward Carl Landry made a last-second, game-winning putback in overtime to lift Sacramento to a 102-101 home victory on Friday.

Rudy Gay really ought to buy Landry dinner for this one. With Indiana leading 101-100 and less than 10 seconds left, Gay struggled to get a clean look against Solomon Hill. At the end of regulation, Gay missed a potential game-winner and his final shot in overtime missed badly.

Luckily for Sacramento, the wide-bodied Landry was waiting for the weakside offensive rebound. Taking advantage of inside position against David West, Landry collected the miss with roughly three seconds remaining, pump-faked to create space, and then went up with it, netting the game-winner with just 0.8 seconds remaining.

Indiana's final attempt on the other end came up empty when West was unable to connect on a deep, contested jumper. In addition to covering up for Gay's two misses, Landry's bucket also ensured the Kings didn't blow a game in which they led by as many as 17 points in the second half.

Gay tallied a game-high 27 points, five rebounds and five assists. Landry added 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench.
