Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings found the perfect playground opponents for their wide-open style.

Chris Webber scored a season-high 32 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Jon Barry came off the bench to spark the Kings to a huge fourth quarter as they ran away from the game Denver Nuggets, 126-116.

The Kings led the NBA in scoring last season and staged an ABA-style shootout through three periods with the Nuggets, playing to a 95-95 tie.

But Webber drained an 18-footer just under a minute into the final quarter, putting Sacramento ahead for good, 99-97, and sparking a decisive 12-4 run from which Denver never recovered.

"(Denver) wanted it in the first half, they beat it in our face," Webber said. "We needed to pay more attention, play more defense. We played our type of game in the second half, more up-tempo. Our bench came in and played no-nonsense and our bench was the reason for the win."

Barry, who scored 16 points, made a 3-pointer and capped the run with a 16-footer that made it 111-101 with 5:26 to play. Denver never got closer than nine points the rest of the way.

"It was really the 30 (points) we got in the fourth quarter that won us this one," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "It's still a good win. Chris Webber is terrific. He answered the call every time and we had a really good balance. We told our team that Denver can really score."

Barry finished 6-of-6 from the floor, 2-of-2 from beyond the arc and grabbed seven rebounds.

"(Denver) lives and dies by the (jumper) and eventually you're going to die by the (jumper)," Barry said. "We were playing better defense and basically had any shot we wanted in the fourth quarter. My teammates found me and I had the open shots."

Webber made 14-of-21 shots for the Kings (3-1), who have won two straight since a loss in the back end of their two-game trip to Japan.

Nick Van Exel scored 26 points and Raef LaFrentz added 23 and 13 rebounds for the Nuggets (2-4), who have lost 80 of 85 road contests since February 1997.

Both teams established season highs in scoring as Sacramento posted its fourth consecutive win over Denver.

Antonio McDyess had 18 points and 12 rebounds, but appeared to wilt down the stretch against Webber, managing just two points and two rebounds over the final 12 minutes.

"In the first half we started pushing the ball, we wanted the win," McDyess said. "And then in the second half, the fans really got into it. In the fourth quarter, the Kings just took over, Chris in the low post and they took over their intensity."

Ron Mercer scored 18 points and George McCloud added 17 off the bench for the the Nuggets, who hit half their 90 shots but gave up 28 points off turnovers.

"It's disappointing because even if you play well and lose, it doesn't really matter," McCloud said. "They picked up their game, they were moving the ball well and guys were making their shots. They create matchup problems."

Vlade Divac had 14 points and 12 rebounds and for the Kings, who shot 55 percent (52-of-95) and held a 46-40 advantage on the boards. Sacramento point guard Jason Williams had 16 points and six assists and Darrick Martin added 14 off the bench.

Denver used a 21-6 second-quarter run capped by McDyess' eight-foot jumper to take a 63-50 lead 2:29 before intermission.

But the Kings stormed back into contention with an 11-0 burst. Williams' running jumper with 16 seconds closed the deficit to 63-61 at the half.

"You know that they are gonna make runs," Denver coach Dan Issel said. "But we had a chance to come into the locker room at the half with a nice lead and that turned the game."
