Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Corliss Williamson scored a season-high 29 points and Chris Webber added 24 and 10 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings rebounded from a pair of heartbreaking defeats with a 119-97 rout of the Denver Nuggets.

Rookie Jason Williams scored half of his 20 points in the pivotal third quarter, which the Kings closed with a 94-78 lead after trailing by four. Williams also handed out 11 assists.

Williamson and Webber each contributed eight points in the third period to help Sacramento climb within 1 1/2 games of Seattle for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Kings suffered overtime losses at home to Seattle and Utah in their last two outings.

"We are trying to make the playoffs now. The fun and games are over," Webber said. "Right now, we can't lose. I don't know what else to say."

Antonio McDyess collected 29 points and 12 rebounds to pace the Nuggets, who fell to 1-19 on the road. They have lost their last five trips to Sacramento.

"They had their game clicking tonight," McDyess said. "For a team of that size, they pass the ball tremendously. If they keep playing together, they will make the playoffs."

These teams went to halftime tied 57-57, with McDyess scoring 21 points and Williamson countering with 18. A pair of jumpers by Eric Williams to open the third quarter put the Nuggets up four.

Then Jason Williams took over. The rookie buried back-to-back 3-pointers around Webber's block of Danny Fortson's layup. The former University of Florida standout sank a free throw after Nick Van Exel was whistled for a technical foul and, after Tariq Abdul-Wahad hit a free throw, Jason Williams picked off a pass by Eric Williams and dunked for a 67-61 lead.

"He really hit two huge shots when they had four straight points there in the third quarter," Kings coach Rick Adelman said of his point guard. "He came down and drilled two 3s and got us back in the game."

"We had a couple calls that didn't go our way and they capitalized on it," Van Exel said. "We let it get us down early in the third quarter. The change in momentum really hurt us and we didn't respond."

The lead was 69-65 with 8 1/2 minutes left in the period when a pair of foul shots by Abdul-Wahad sparked a 12-0 spurt. Williamson hit a tip-in and, after Jason Williams rebounded a miss by Van Exel, Webber buried a jumper. A lay-in by Abdul-Wahad, who contributed 17 points, made it 77-65 with 6:38 remaining.

Williamson had a dunk off a feed by Williams with 4.1 seconds left to give Sacramento a 94-78 lead heading into the final period. Lawrence Funderburke helped the Kings coast, scoring all 15 of his points in the last 12 minutes.

"I think we responded to the challenge in the second half," Williamson said. "I think I'm getting more comfortable with my role. I struggled early in the year trying to find my game and I have kind of found my place in the offense now."

Williamson connected on 12-of-18 from the field, Webber hit 10-of-17 and the Kings shot better than 52 percent (46-of-88). Sacramento recorded its highest point total of the season, breaking the 110-point barrier for the 10th time and moving past the Los Angeles Lakers as the league's highest-scoring team at over 99.0 per contest.

Vlade Divac pulled down 14 rebounds for the Kings, while Fortson grabbed 16 to go with his 14 points.

Eric Washington scored 15 points, Eric Williams added 14 and Van Exel had 13 and 11 assists for Denver, which made only 2-of-12 3-pointers.
