Slam Dunk Contest 2012 Video: Ricky Rubio Throws Alley-Oop To Derrick Williams

Derrick Williams brought out fellow rookie and teammate Ricky Rubio to throw him an alley-oop in the second round of the 2012 Slam Dunk Contest Saturday night at the Amway Center in Orlando.

Rubio threw the basketball off of the side of the backboard and, after several missed attempts, Williams completed a 360-degree spin-move dunk. Rubio, ranked fifth in the league in assists per game with 8.5, threw Williams some great passes off the side of the backboard.

The dunk was impressive, but the misses took some luster off the dunk when Williams finally completed it. Check out the video of Williams' second-round dunk and the alley-oop pass from Ricky Rubio. Make sure to check back in a few minutes for the results and Williams' final dunk.
