Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The early season battle of Western Conference powers turned out to be more of a skirmish.

Chris Webber scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 105-98 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Jason Williams added 16 points and Doug Christie 15 for the Kings, who avoided back-to-back losses for the first time this season. They are tied with the Los Angeles Lakers at the top of the Pacific Division standings, one game ahead of Phoenix.

"We're a good team," Webber said. "I believe we're one of the best teams in the NBA. There's a lot of great teams and if we're one of the best, I don't know. I think we're up there with some of the great teams in the NBA and if we can just keep that in that mind frame that we're one of the best, and if we can work just as hard as the best, we'll stay that way."

Former King Tony Delk collected 21 points and Shawn Marion had 17 and 10 rebounds for the Suns, who completed a 1-2 road trip.

"They're a better team than we are," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "Right now that's a better basketball team than we are. They took it to us and played the way they play. They got out in the open floor and we didn't get back on defense."

Phoenix started the season on a roll by winning seven straight games after dropping its season opener. Since then it has gone just 3-4.

Scot Pollard's two free throws erased a one-point deficit and put Sacramento on top, 14-13, with 4:58 left in the first quarter and the Kings did not trail thereafter.

Delk's jumper with 10:47 left in the seˋquarter pulled Phoenix within 32-30 but the Kings scored the next seven points. They took their first double-digut lead, 51-40, with 2:51 left as Pollard made a layup.

Vlade Divac scored nine of his 14 points in a 16-2 run as the Kings took a 78-67 advantage in the third quarter.

"I think that what we really wanted to do was have a really strong third quarter," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "They've had really strong third quarters this year. With a nine-point lead we wanted to be the ones to take control of the game in the third quarter. Vlade had an advantage in there so we wanted to get him going because he struggled in the first half."

Sacramento held a 91-70 lead with 9:23 lead in the fourth quarter but the Suns closed the deficit to six points as Marion made a 3-pointer.

However, Webber hit a 16-foot jumper from the right sideline and Williams made one of two free throws to push the cushion to nine points with 19 seconds remaining. Delk's basket with 10 seconds to go closed out the scoring.

"You can't get down to a team like that and expect to come back and win," Delk said. "I thought we played a good fourth quarter against them, but we gave up a lot of drives in the middle and a lot of second shots."

Pollard finished with 14 points and Peja Stojakovic contrubuted 10 for Sacramento, which snapped a four-game losing streak to Phoenix.

The Kings shot 54.5 percent (12-for-22) from the field in the first quarter, the ninth time in the last 10 games that they have shot 50 percent or better from the field in the opening quarter. They finished at 52 percent (44-for-84).

Sacramento has scored 100 or more points in its last four home games and six games overall at ARCO Arena. But the Kings also have held their last three opponenets under the century mark and four of their last five. After 15 games, no Sacramento foe has shot 50 percent or better from the field.

"I loved the energy we had tonight and I loved the way we played and executed," Webber said. "The way we played defense, I don't think we can say that's our Achilles heel anymore. That's one thing we can brag about, our defense."

Clifford Robinson scored 17 points for the Suns, who 42 percent (38-for-90) and were outrebounded, 48-45.
