Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The best game of Elton Brand's brief career could not have had a worse finish.

The rookie forward collected season highs of 30 points and 18 rebounds but committed a crucial turnover and missed two free throws in the final 90 seconds as the Chicago Bulls absorbed a 102-90 loss to the Sacramento Kings.

Often working against superstar Chris Webber, the 6-8 Brand looked every bit like the top overall draft pick. He made 11-of-20 shots and had nine offensive rebounds, also blocking three shots.

"Elton Brand is not getting his shot blocked now," Bulls coach Tim Floyd said. "That is a credit to him with shot identification. He is leading the league in offensive rebounds. He is so much better than he was two months ago and he was good then."

"Brand caught us by surprise," Kings guard Nick Anderson said. "We didn't expect him to be dominant inside like he was. Elton played with a lot of confidence and has gotten smooth around the basket. He's tough."

However, Brand was quiet in the final period, when the Bulls made a charge. They cut the deficit to 93-90 with 3:21 to go on a 3-pointer by Chris Carr that capped a 9-2 burst.

Playing with five fouls, Webber made a long jumper to push the lead to five points with 2:29 remaining. Bulls rookie Ron Artest was double-teamed and lost the ball and Jason Williams made a jumper for a 97-90 advantage with 1:35 left.

On consecutive possessions, Brand committed a turnover and missed two free throws. Anderson provided the dagger with a 3-pointer with 36 seconds left as Chicago was scoreless for the final 3:21.

"Being down three points with two minutes and our lack of execution really hurt us," Brand said. "We had a great opportunity to win in the last two minutes."

"We had a bad stretch in the last two minutes of the game," Floyd said. "We did not counter with any stops going the other way."

Webber had 24 points and 12 rebounds and Williams and Vlade Divac added 19 apiece as the Kings improved to 2-1 on their eight-game road trip. Sacramento has won nine of its last 11 overall.

"We feel glad that we've won nine of 11 games, but we've won most of them at home," Webber said. "We need to make sure we win our games on the road. That will be the true test of this team."

Working in the low post against the taller Webber, Brand scored 14 points in the first quarter and six more in the second to give Chicago a 48-47 lead at intermission. Webber countered with 11 points.

"Elton is a good, hard worker," Webber said. "I respect his game. He played well, but he won't have that kind of game in Sacramento."

The Kings took the lead for good at 51-50 on Webber's jumper that was part of an 8-0 burst. Dunks by Vlade Divac and Webber built the advantage to 55-50 with 9:42 left in the third period.

"We talked about what happened in the first half during halftime," said Williams, who also handed out nine assists. "We knew this team had been averaging only so many points and that we needed to go out aggressively and put them away in the second half."

Webber and Divac scored nine points apiece in the quarter as the Kings took a 78-69 lead to the final period. Williams drilled consecutive 3-pointers to push the margin to 85-72 with 10:25 to play, but Brand's two free throws capped a 7-0 spurt that got Chicago back in it.

Chicago native Anderson added 13 points for the Kings, who shot 48 percent (41-of-86) and scored 30 points off 23 Chicago turnovers.

Carr scored 16 points and Artest added 15 for the Bulls, who shot 43 percent (35-of-81) and held a 45-41 rebounding edge.
