Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Chris Webber scored 10 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, when the Sacramento Kings pulled away for a 110-99 victory over the Charlotte Hornets in the opener of their eight-game road trip.

Nick Anderson scored 10 of his season-high 29 points in the final period for the Kings, who improved to 9-10 on the road this season and ended Charlotte's five-game home winning streak. The Hornets fell to 16-3 at home this season.

"Starting a road trip with a win against a team that has lost only two games at home is huge," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "I told the guys to step up and they responded well tonight."

The season-high trip includes stops in Milwaukee, Chicago, New York, Minnesota, Detroit, Indiana and Philadelphia as Sacramento does not play at home again until February 8.

"We knew this was going to be a tough road trip," said Anderson, who made 11-of-16 shots, including 3-of-3 3-pointers. "They needed me to step up. The last couple of weeks I have been establishing myself, working hard in the post and now my game has expanded. I just decided to take it upon myself."

Webber had a layup to trigger an 8-0 surge that gave the Kings a 100-89 lead with 5:36 to play. After a 3-pointer by Charlotte's Eddie Jones, Webber added a pair of baskets to make it 104-92 with 3:25 remaining. The Hornets got no closer than nine points thereafter.

"Webb came up with a big fourth quarter and knocked down a lot of shots for us," Adelman said.

Derrick Coleman scored 24 points for the Hornets, who had their four-game winning streak snapped. Charlotte has lost four straight meetings with Sacramento.

"It was a rough night," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "We played excellent the last four games, but tonight we just did not have it. It became a game where both teams had to run and they did it with more success than we did."

A jumper by Eddie Jones, who scored 11 points on just 5-of-18 shooting, cut the deficit to 92-89 with 7:17 to go. Webber made a layup and Jon Barry and Anderson sank 3-pointers to rebuild the lead to 11 points.

"I knew if Nick hit his first few shots, he would get rolling and his confidence would soar," said Jones, who had his hands full with Anderson despite being one of the best defensive guards in the league.

Jones made a 3-pointer, but Webber hit a jumper, Scot Pollard made a steal and Webber scored inside to basically seal it.

"Their star player, Webber, came up real big in the second half," said Hornets center Elden Campbell, who had 12 points and 11 rebounds. "He heated it up and basically put it away."

Jason Williams had 15 points and nine assists for the Kings, who shot 53 percent (44-of-83), including 9-of-17 from behind the arc.

Webber grabbed 11 rebounds and former Hornet Vlade Divac pulled down 12 in his return to Charlotte. Divac played two seasons with the Hornets before signing as a free agent with the Kings prior to last season.

"There were some familiar faces around the court," said Divac, who scored seven points. "I was trying to say `Hi' to everyone and I did not get my focus."

David Wesley and Anthony Mason scored 16 points apiece for the Hornets, who had six players in double figures but shot just 43 percent (37-of-86) and surrendered 30 points off 20 turnovers.

"Sacramento did a great job playing defense on us tonight," Jones said. "They were successful in making us take perimeter shots and stopped us from playing our style of getting to the foul line."

Anderson scored 12 points and Webber 11 in the first quarter, offsetting Coleman's 13 and giving Sacramento a 36-32 lead.

The Kings took the lead for good at 58-57 on a basket by Anderson with 1:56 left in the second quarter. They led 62-59 at halftime and extended the lead to 83-77 entering the fourth quarter as Anderson scored seven points in the third period.
