Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Nick Anderson collected 28 points and 11 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings set a team record for wins since moving out west with a 113-103 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Acquired in an offseason trade with Orlando, Anderson has come under criticism of late for his play. The Kings shooting guard had been averaging 10.9 points per game, well below his career average of 15.4. But he came through tonight.

The win was Kings' 40th of the season, surpassing the previous high of 39, set in the 1994-95 season and matched in 1995-96. The Kings moved from Kansas City for the start of the 1985-86 campaign.

With Sacramento clinging to a 101-97 lead with 2:20 to play, Anderson drained a 22-footer and followed a miss by Grant Hill with a 3-pointer from the right corner, giving the Kings a commanding 106-97 lead with 1:36 remaining.

"We needed this victory and everybody responded," Anderson said. "It was a team effort, a team win. I've been in these situations before and the only thing you have to do is go out and play. I let the game come to me and I responded to the things that coach asked me to do."

The Kings began the game shorthanded and things got worse throughout the contest. Jon Barry and Predrag Stojakovic were unavailable due to injury and Vlade Divac joined them on the sidelines when he strained his right knee at the 5:12 mark of the first quarter.

The Kings lost another player in the second quarter, when forward Corliis Williamson received two technicals and was ejected for arguing with officials while on the bench.

"It was an unbelievable win," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "Under the circumstances, with everything going on, it might have been our best win we've had all year. We had guys go down and kicked out, and with only eight players everybody responded."

Chris Webber had 29 points and 14 rebounds for Sacramento, which moved ahead of Seattle into seventh place in the Western Conference.

Hill finished with 35 points and nine rebounds for Detroit, which had a three-game road winning streak snapped. The Pistons are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, two games behind the Charlotte Hornets.

"Nick hit some big shots," Hill said. "We'd get a little closer and then... that's how it was the whole game, catch-up, they'd get the lead, then catch-up. Webber and Anderson got going. I thought we could have played better."

Anderson began to heat up in the scond quarter, scoring 11 points to help the Kings take a 54-52 lead at the half. Webber had 12 points and Anderson added 10 more in the third quarter as Sacramento stretched the lead to 84-79 entering the final period.

Jason Williams collected 15 points and 10 assists and Lawrence Funderburke had 11 and six off the bench for Sacramento, which shot 48 percent (36-of-75) from the field and hit 31-of-44 free throws.

"I try to play hard when I come in," Funderburke said. "Coach says, `Lawrence, you need to go in there and get something going'. But Vlade going down is going to add a lot of pressure to everyone now."

Jerry Stackhouse scored 24 points and Lindsay Hunter added 11 for the Pistons, who shot 43 percent (39-of-91) and converted 20-of-27 free throws.

"I felt that at any time, if we could put together any kind of spurt, we could pull away from them," Stackhouse said. "But we never got any spurt. We basically played at their pace all night. It's disappointing because we feel we should have won. They were injured, playing without guys that are major parts of what they are trying to do. When things like that happen, you've got to take advantage and we didn't."
