Derrick Williams sent Bismack Biyombo crashing to the court with an emphatic dunk during Sacramento's 101-91 home victory over Charlotte on Friday.

Kaboom. With under than a minute remaining in the third quarter and the Kings leading 76-67, Williams received a pass from Andre Miller as he slipped to the paint from the top of the arc. Miller's bounce pass split two defenders and caught Williams in stride, setting up the former No. 2 overall pick for a one-on-one showdown with the long-armed Biyombo.

Williams lifted off two feet and rose high for a right-handed dunk that cleared Biyombo's two-handed contesting effort and sent the Charlotte big man falling backwards to the court on the baseline. The Kings' bench was predictably amused by Williams' high-flying effort.

Rudy Gay led the Kings with a game-high 33 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Williams finished with 13 points, two rebounds and two assists.

Gerald Henderson tallied a team-high 20 points and five rebounds for Charlotte. Kemba Walker added 18 points, five rebounds and four steals.

Sacramento improved to 23-45 and snapped a four-game losing streak. Charlotte fell to 29-38 with its third straight loss.
