GAME RECAP

Mitch Richmond scored 32 points and Billy Owens added a season-high 27 and 13 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings snapped a six-game road losing streak with a 101-99 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

The back-and-forth game was tied eight times in the third quarter and three times in the final period before a fast-break layup by Owens with 4:48 remaining gave the Kings the lead for good, 90-88.

Corliss Williamson added 10 points for the Kings, who won on the road for the first time since January 8th, when they defeated Dallas, 103-92.

"I thought Denver was competitive and played with a lot of heart," Sacramento coach Eddie Jordan said. "Mitch Richmond made some free throws in the fourth quarter and Billy Owens was very consistent tonight. We got to the line in the fourth quarter, they got to the line in the second quarter."

The Nuggets were 15-of-18 from the line in the second quarter but just 2-of-3 in the fourth. Sacramento hit 13-of-14 attempts from the line in the crucial fourth quarter and was 26-of-37 for the game.

"We wanted to get a win to have something to hang our hats on going to the All-Star break," Richmond said. "We worked on free throws a lot in practice and we went hard to the hoop to draw some fouls."

LaPhonso Ellis had 23 points and 13 rebounds and Johnny Newman scored 18 points off the bench for Denver, which lost for the fourth time in its last five games. The Nuggets, who have lost 20 of 23 games at McNichols Arena, were coming off a 111-72 loss to Chicago on Monday, their worst at home since joining the NBA in 1976.

The Nuggets dropped to 0-10 in games decided by four points or less and 0-4 in games decided by two or less points. Denver is also 0-21 when it surrenders 100 or more points.

"It was frustrating because I want these guys to win so bad," Denver coach Bill Hanzlik said. "I thought we competed really well and played hard. We had some key turnovers down the stretch and Richmond made the big shots when they needed them. We just don't do the little things that help you win when its crunch time."

Both teams shot an identical 47 percent from the field, with the Kings connecting on 34-of-72 attempts and the Nuggets 38-of-81. Sacramento, led by Richmond's 4-of-7, shot 7-for-16 from three-point range. Denver misfired on four of its six three-pointers.

After Owens hit his fast-break layup to give the Kings the lead, Richmond, who had nine points in the fourth quarter, followed with a drive to make it 92-88.

A 19-foot jumper by Ellis with 1:56 left reduced Sacramento's lead to 93-92, but two free throws by rookie Anthony Johnson and a dunk by fellow rookie Michael Stewart built the Kings lead back to 97-92 45 seconds later.

Denver cut the lead to two points three times down the stretch, but it could get no closer. Richmond accounted for Sacramento's last six points with free throws over the last 12.2 seconds.

"I've been in situations like that this year where I haven't made the free throws," Richmond said.
