Game Recap

Tony Massenburg scored a career-high 34 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added four of his 23 in overtime as the Vancouver Grizzlies put an end to the 1997-98 regular season with a 112-108 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Antonio Daniels added 13 points for the Grizzlies, who completed the best season in the three-year history of the franchise at 19-63. The victory was just their sixth in the last 39 games and snapped a four-game losing streak.

"That's the way our season's been all year," Vancouver coach Brian Hill said. "Kind of crazy like this game. I was just proud that in the last game of the year our guys came in and competed hard. It was a road game, we didn't really have a great year, so we could have easily folded up the tent and think about summer vacation. This tells me a little bit about their character."

Tariq Abdul-Wahad had a career-high 31 points for Sacramento, which ended the season by losing 26 of its final 29 games. Corliss Williamson wasted a 17-point performance by going 3-of-10 from the foul line, including a miss with three seconds left in regulation that would have put the Kings ahead.

"I never thought that we would end the last one-third of the season in this fashion," Sacramento coach Eddie Jordan said. "Our rookies just didn't have the intensity, mentally or physically or emotionally down the stretch."

The game was tied at 93-93 after Abdul-Wahad made a pair of free throws with 5 1/2 minutes left in regulation. But Williamson accidently tipped the ball in for Vancouver 15 seconds later, former King Bobby Hurley made a runner and George Lynch added a layup for a 99-93 Vancouver lead with 4:02 to go.

The Kings battled back to take the lead at 100-99 on Williamson's layup with 1:44 remaining. After Daniels and Williamson traded buckets, Massenburg's lay-in provided the Grizzlies with a 103-102 advantage with 19 seconds left. Williamson was fouled with three seconds left and made only the second shot to tie the game. Daniels missed a 15-footer and the game went to overtime.

Vancouver scored the first six points of the extra session. Lynch opened it with a layup and Abdur-Rahim followed with four straight points. He hit a pair of free throws with 4:07 left, and after the teams failed to score for nearly three minutes, he knocked down a jumper for a 109-103 lead with 1:10 to go.

Chris Robinson buried a three-pointer and Williamson scored to cut the deficit to 109-108 with 15 seconds remaining. But Daniels, the fourth pick in last June's draft who averaged just 7.8 points per game, sank two foul shots for a three-point cushion. After Williamson missed, Lynch capped the scoring.

"I really think it was a lack of experience that cost us down the stretch," Abdul-Wahad said. "They stayed close throughout the game and finally took the lead for good once overtime started. So you have to tip your hat off to them."

Vancouver scored the game's first four points, but the Kings reeled off 18 of the next 24 to open their largest lead at 18-10 after a dunk by Olden Polynice with 5:28 remaining in the period. Sacramento held a 24-22 lead after one and was ahead, 47-46, at halftime.

Massenburg, starting in place injured center Bryant Reeves, grabbed 12 rebounds and made all free throws to complete a brilliant week. The 6-9 forward averaged 26.8 points and 9.3 rebounds in the last four games -- well above his season averages of 6.5 points and 3.8 boards.

"I got a lot of looks on offense, a lot of opportunities and I was able to finish some things off," Massenburg said. "The most important thing to me, though, was that we won the game. We really needed to win this one for ourselves."

"It was a career night for Massenburg," Abdur-Rahim said. "He played big tonight and we really needed that. He's been playing like that since he came in to fill in for 'Big Country'".

Lynch finished with 12 points and Hurley had 11 for the Grizzlies, who shot 48 percent (44-of-92) from the field and held a 46-39 rebounding advantage. Former King Michael Smith, who received a standing ovation from the ARCO Arena crowd, collected six points and seven boards.

Robinson, who came to Sacramento in the trade for Hurley and Smith, made four three-pointers and scored 18 points. Olden Polynice had 16 points and Lawrence Funderburke added 12 for the injury depleted Kings, who shot 48 percent (44-of-91).

Sacramento played its eighth straight game without star guard Mitch Richmond, who has a sore right knee. The Kings were also without forwards Billy Owens (strained right hamstring) and Otis Thorpe (sore left knee.)
