Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- This one has to be tough to take.

Nick Van Exel and Bryant Stith sparked a comeback in the final minutes of regulation as the Denver Nuggets handed the Sacramento Kings their second overtime loss in as many days, 123-117.

Coming off Sunday's overtime loss at home to Portland, the Kings looked to be control after Predrag Stojakovic made a 19-footer that provided Sacramento a 101-92 lead with 4:06 left.

However, Van Exel and Stith each hit a pair of 3-pointers over the final 3:32 of regulation to force overtime. Stith's second shot from beyond the arc, with 38 seconds left, tied it 108-108 and sent the game to overtime.

Stith, who scored 21 points, also converted a driving layup with 1:51 left in the extra period that put Denver ahead for good, 116-114.

"During the fourth quarter, Nick has proven he's a clutch player game after game," Stith said. "We're developing a camaraderie out on the floor. He was labeled a bad apple in L.A., but he's proven he's a competitor and a winner."

Antonio McDyess had 29 points and 13 rebounds and Van Exel 27 points and 15 assists for the Nuggets, who have won three of their last four games. Van Exel scored 15 of his points in the fourth quarter and overtime.

"I don't care, I'm going to shoot it up," Van Exel said. "They fell when they needed to tonight. Tomorrow it will all be forgotten."

Stojakovic netted a career-high 30 points and Chris Webber finished with 25 points and 15 rebounds for Sacramento, which has dropped eight of its last 12 games. The Kings were playing their fourth game in the last five days.

"We didn't pay attention, and didn't play like we should," said Stojakovic, who made 11-of-18 shots from the field. "It was our fourth in five days and we probably got tired at the end. Bryant Stith and Nick Van Exel hit some big baskets."

Raef LaFrentz made a pair of free throws with 2:17 left in overtime to put the Nuggets ahead 114-111 but Jason Williams answered with a long 3-pointer that pulled Sacramento even.

Following Stith's layup that gave Denver its first lead, Webber hit a free throw. But LaFrentz drilled a 3-pointer with 89 seconds remaining that provided the Nuggets a 119-115 advantage. Sacramento came no closer than four points thereafter.

Van Exel converted a technical free throw with 6:02 left that brought the Nuggets within 93-92. But Stojakovic, who scored a season-high 25 points in Sunday's loss, netted eight straight points to push the advantage to nine with 4:06 remaining.

Sacramento was still in front, 104-97, with 2:56 left on two free throws by Stojakovic. Rookie James Posey made two foul shots and Van Exel drilled a pair of 3-pointers around two free throws by Webber that cut the deficit to 106-105 with 1:43 remaining.

Webber, who made 9-of-25 shots, sank a tough turnaround jumper in the lane for a three-point lead with under a minute to play. But Stith answered with a 3-pointer from just to the left of key with 38 seconds to go that forced overtime.

"At that point you kind of say not again," said Webber referring to playing overtime for the second straight day. "I don't really think it impacts the way you play but you do think about it. And when you play back-to-back overtime games, you don't necessarily want the second one to be Denver."

Stith had a chance to win it at the end of regulation but his 3-pointer from the top of the key as time expired bounced off the front rim.

"I wanted to be able to put myself in a passing lane," said Stith, who made 8-of-10 shots, including 4-of-5 3-pointers. "Van Exel just chose me and I was able to come through for the team."

"Our guys gave a great effort," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Give Denver credit. They made every shot they had to. I knew they would come back, especially playing at home. They made the big shots."

In addition to Stith's effort of the bench, Chris Gatling also netted 21 points for the Nuggets, who shot 47.5 percent (47-of-99). Denver's bench outscored the Kings' reserves, 48-35.

The Kings led by as many as 19 points in the first half and were ahead, 62-49 at the break. Jon Barry scored 14 of his 17 points in the opening half for Sacramento.

Sacramento shot 44 percent (44-of-100) and held a 55-51 rebounding advantage.
