Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Faced with the unfamiliar prospect of recording a third straight win, the Los Angeles Clippers returned to form tonight, looking lifeless and disorganized in a 98-78 loss to the Sacramento Kings.

Chris Webber scored 25 points and Vlade Divac grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds as the Kings basically had a night off, taking advantage of the blundering Clippers to post their fifth straight home victory and improve to 25-6 overall at Arco Arena.

The Kings held a 27-19 lead after one quarter and extended it to a commanding 55-33 cushion at halftime, relegating the remaining 24 minutes to nothing more than extended garbage time. Sacramento pulled within one-half game of seventh-place Minnesota and moved 11 games ahead of Dallas for the final Western Conference playoff spot.

"I thought it was a really solid game for us," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We needed to come out tonight and just get the win, and I thought for the most part, after the first seven or eight minutes, we played pretty well and did what we had to do to get the game."

The Clippers shot 35 percent (31-of-88) and committed 23 turnovers. They were 3-of-17 from 3-point range and showed little effort after Tuesday's rousing come-from-behind 110-106 victory over Denver. Los Angeles recorded a season-high three wins in a row from December 22-26.

"I don't know if we came out a little cocky or what is was," Clippers coach Jim Todd said. "We didn't have the energy like we've had the last couple of games, which was too bad. We talked about it before the game, but it didn't seem like we had it. I didn't feel like we were in the game at all and once halftime came it seemed like it was over."

Rookie Lamar Odom continues to be the lone bright spot for the Clippers, notching his third triple-double of the season with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

"We just didn't play as a team tonight from the very beginning and they kind of set the tone, like they usually do," Odom said. "You gotta come to play with them. It was one of those games where we didn't come to play early, and we paid for it.

"(A triple-double) is a great stat to have, it's a great achievement as a basketball player, but if we had won or played more competitive it definitely would be more satisfying."

Los Angeles is an NBA-worst 4-30 on the road this season.

Predrag Stojakovic scored 17 points, Divac 12 and Tony Delk added 10 off the bench for Sacramento, which shot 45 percent (38-of-84) and yielded only 11 points off turnovers.

Odom's driving layup gave Los Angeles a 6-2 lead less than three minutes into the game before Webber hit a 14-footer, Stojakovic a 3-pointer and Divac two free throws to put the Kings in front, 9-8.

Michael Olowokandi hit a hook shot in the lane and Maurice Taylor made a free throw to give the Clippers their last lead, 11-9, with 5:58 left in the first quarter.

Jason Williams scored six of the Kings' next seven points to spark an 18-8 run to close the period.

"Any win we can get we'll take, so I just think we are glad with a win," Williams said. "We need to go out each night and play like we're capable of playing, win the games we are supposed to win and just play hard every night."

Odom made consecutive baskets early in the second quarter to pull the Clippers within 29-25, but his teammates did not exhibit the same fight, watching idly as Delk scored six points during a 14-4 run that made it 43-29 with 4:04 left in the half.

Webber was good from 18 feet and had a driving dunk before making two free throws to close the half, increasing the lead to 55-33 at intermission.

"The energy wasn't there and that bounce in our step wasn't there," Olowokandi said.
