Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber had 23 points and 11 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings gave coach Rick Adelman his 400th career victory, brushing off the slumping Boston Celtics, 114-101.

Webber sank 9-of-17 shots from the floor, 5-of-5 from the line and handed out six assists in 33 minutes for the Kings, who posted their first back-to-back wins in December after going 10-2 in the season's first month.

Predrag Stojakovic and Jon Barry combined for 31 of Sacramento's 45 bench points, helping Adelman improve his all-time record to 400-285. In his 10th season as a coach, Adelman is 43-33 since taking over the Kings at the start of the lockout-shortened season.

"It's nice to get it before the first of the year and at home," Adelman said of his milestone win. "I just thought that was a really good win. We played pretty well the whole game. A few turnovers there in the fourth quarter kind of brought them back, but overall I was really pleased with the this win."

"Their bench killed us," Celtics coach Rick Pitino added.

The Celtics were blown out early and never seriously challenged until a 15-4 fourth-quarter run pulled them within 97-91 with 3:45 to play. But Webber, Jason Williams and Vlade Divac combined to make six straight free throws as Sacramento opened a 103-91 cushion with 2:22 left.

"Any time we need a win and we get it, especially in our hometown, it's big," Williams said. "(Adelman's) been coaching a long time now and I know I would like to have 400 wins sometimes in my game so I'm sure he feels good. All I care about is winning and we did."

Williams had 15 points and seven assists and Divac added 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Kings, who shot 52 percent (39-of-75) and improved upon their league-leading 104.8-point scoring average.

Antoine Walker scored 23 points for Boston, which has lost eight of its last nine games and five of the last six meetings with Sacramento.

"In the third quarter they lulled us to sleep and then we finally found the time to wake up and play some (defense) and turn them over a little bit and got it back in the game in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, moral victories is not what the team is looking for."

Boston's Paul Pierce, playing his second game after missing seven with an ankle injury, had a rough night. He missed 10-of-13 shots and committed four turnovers before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

"That's just not going to get the job done with any team in the NBA and until we realize that we'll never be an NBA team," Pierce said. "We sort of picked up our intensity (in the fourth quarter) but we should have been like that the whole game."

Rookie Adrian Griffin had 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists and Kenny Anderson added 17 points and nine assists for the Celtics, who opened the season at 10-8 before their recent slide.

Boston shot 45 percent (40-of-89) and yielded 17 points off turnovers. The Celtics lost the battle on the boards, 44-39, and managed just 26 bench points.

Tony Battie buried a short jumper to give Boston a 20-16 lead with 2:35 remaining in the first quarter but the Kings took over from there.

Nick Anderson hit a 3-pointer, Webber and Darrick Martin combined to hit four free throws and Stojakovic made a layup as the Kings closed the period on a 9-0 run to make it 25-20.

Kenny Anderson made a driving layup with 6:11 left in the second quarter to keep the Celtics within 41-34, but the Kings opened things up again before the half.

Williams made a free throw, Barry hit a 3-pointer and Stojakovic followed with a 24-footer to make it 48-35 4:22 before intermission.
