Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Isaiah Rider has been giving the Atlanta Hawks headaches all season. Tonight, he gave the Sacramento Kings one.

In what may have been in his final game in an Atlanta uniform, Rider scored 33 points as the Hawks earned their ninth straight win over the struggling Kings, a 100-94 victory.

With the trading deadline looming on Thursday and Rider among the biggest names rumored to be available, the 6-5 guard had one of his better games of the season. He was exceptional in the first three quarters, scoring 29 points to help the Hawks to an 86-74 lead.

Asked if he expected to be traded, Rider said, "I hadn't really thought about it or looked at it like that. I just have to play each game. I hope not be traded but I'm an employee and I can't control it, so I don't don't think about it."

Since being acquired from Portland in August, Rider has lived up to his reputation as a talented troublemaker. He leads the club in scoring but has been late for practices and team flights and was suspended earlier this season.

"Things happen and I think we've moved past it," added Rider. "It was early in the season and now we're more than halfway through. It's all about winning and getting into the playoffs."

Jimmy Jackson added 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Hawks, who had their lead to sliced to as few as four points in the final period before holding on to improve to 1-2 on a season-high six-game road trip.

The Hawks swept two games from the Kings this season and have not lost to them since November 12, 1994.

Chris Webber had 28 points and 20 rebounds for floundering Sacramento, which has dropped five of six and nine of its last 13 games.

"I don't know what it is, I'm worried because we are slipping," Webber said.

Trailing 90-76 with under 10 minutes remaining, the Kings battled back. They used an 11-2 surge, capped by a hook from Vlade Divac, who scored 18 points, to slice the deficit to five with 6:33 left.

Sacramento made its charge to get back in the game with Atlanta 7-2 center Dikembe Mutombo on the bench due to foul trouble. He finished with 10 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocks.

"Our defense has been very well and that's what happened tonight," Mutombo said. "I tell you, when you have a great shot-blocker like myself, it's hard to penetrate all the time."

A 3-pointer by Predrag Stojakovic pulled the Kings within four but Alan Henderson had Rider had baskets to provide a 98-90 lead with 3:13 to play.

Stojakovic, who scored 16 points, answered with consecutive baskets to slice it to 98-94 with 75 seconds left. Sacramento had three chances in the final minute to cut the lead to two but came up empty on each possession.

Rider made 14-of-28 shots but was not a factor over the final 12 minutes, when he scored four points on 2-of-8 shooting.

Rider was at his best in the the opening quarter. He made his first six shots, scoring 14 points in the period as the Hawks raced to a 39-31 lead. He had 20 by halftime to help Atlanta open a 65-54 advantage.

The Hawks shot 64 percent (18-of-28) in the first quarter and 55 percent (29-of-53) in the half. They cooled considerably in the second half to finish at 43 percent (45-of-104).

Webber made a 15-footer early in the third to bring the Kings within 67-62. But the Hawks answered with a 17-5 burst and took their biggest lead, 84-67, with 3:11 left in the period on a driving layup by Henderson.

"We talked before the game that we didn't want to see Jackson and Rider get going early, because they are so explosive offensively," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Both had it going and we had our hands full. We made a nice run in the second half, but we have to come out with a better effort at the start."

Webber finished 11-of-23 from the field for Sacramento, which shot 41 percent (38-of-92) and held a 52-50 rebounding advantage.
