Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber and the Sacramento Kings can play tough, too.

Webber scored 30 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the normally flashy Kings pounded and grinded their way to a rousing 81-75 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Victims of an 0-for-13 shooting performance from 3-point range in Wednesday's tough 82-79 loss at San Antonio, the Kings continued to try and bomb away at the Spurs tonight but went just 2-of-18 from beyond the arc.

Undaunted, Webber took the game into his own hands against Spurs "Twin Towers" Tim Duncan and David Robinson. His teammates followed suit as Sacramento used a stifling interior defense to limit San Antonio to just 13 fourth-quarter points.

"It's one of those games, it's the same game we had with them in San Antonio," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "Both teams just slug it out. Fortunately we made some stops, Webb hit some big shots and we won the game. It was a terrific one."

Webber scored nine points in the final six minutes and hit the shot of the game with 23 seconds to play. After Robinson made two free throws to shave the deficit to 78-75, Webber followed a pair of missed 3-pointers by Peja Stojakovic by ripping down a rebound off a missed hook shot by Duncan and settling matters on the other end.

"I think we both like playing against each other," Webber said of his budding rivalry with Duncan. "We really respect each other's game."

The 6-10 power forward drove the lane from the left side, contorted his body in the paint and threw up a one-hand semi-hook shot that bounded off the glass and through for a five-point lead.

Webber rebounded Derek Anderson's miss on San Antonio's next trip and hit 1-of-2 free throws to close out the scoring and give the first-place Kings their eighth win in nine home games.

"Chris is a great player," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He got to the rim on us a couple of times in the second half when we didn't allow him to in the first half."

Duncan had 23 points and a season-high 23 rebounds and Robinson added 15 and 12 for the Spurs, who have lost four of five on the road. San Antonio was held to a season low in points after doing the same to Sacramento on Wednesday.

"It was a great game," Duncan said. "We played hard all the way through and it came down to who could finish the game. Basically what it came down to was making plays at the end of the game and I think Chris Webber made some incredible plays to give his team a boost and take them over the top."

After playing to a 22-22 deadlock over the first 12 minutes, the Spurs began to pull away in the second quarter. Robinson converted a three-point play and Duncan followed with a layup to give the Spurs a 33-28 lead with 7:19 remaining in the first half.

Sean Elliott's 3-pointer 45 seconds before intermission gave the Spurs a 48-42 lead.

Despite lacking its normal explosiveness on offense, Sacramento put the squeeze on, holding San Antonio to just 27 points in the second half.

"They are a great team with a great player (Duncan) and any time you can hold them to 27 points, it just shows our team right now," Webber said. "(Adelman's) the reason why. He's the one who's always preaching about defense and he has that confidence in us. He's had that for three years and so now we're just finally proving it to him."

Avery Johnson's basket gave San Antonio a 52-44 lead but the Kings began to wear the Spurs down thereafter. Jason Williams hit back-to-back jumpers to forge a 56-56 tie with 3:53 left in the third quarter and the lead changed hands four more times before Williams made it 62-62 with an 18-footer with 23 seconds remaining in the period.

Webber forced the ninth and final tie with a 13-footer to make it 66-66 with 10:32 to play and Stojakovic completed the 13th and final lead change by hitting 1-of-2 free throws with 9:36 remaining.

Webber appeared to give the Kings some breathing room when he hit an 18-footer and two free throws around a free throw by Barry to make it 74-68 with 6:57 left. But Elliott made one free throw and Robinson added four more from the line to cut the deficit to one with 5:37 remaining.

Again the Kings went to Webber and again Webber came through, sinking an 18-footer before Doug Christie's free throws re-established a five-point lead. Neither team scored for better than two minutes before Robinson's free throws got the Spurs within three.

But Webber's acrobatic hook shot in the lane exacted the Kings' revenge for the tough loss six days ago at the Alamodome.

"I hate that word revenge," Kings center Scot Pollard said. "I also hate the word hate but we wanted to get this one. We felt like we had a poor effort in San Antonio, we didn't shoot the ball well and they didn't shoot the ball very well."

Williams and Barry scored 12 points apiece for the Kings, who shot 36 percent (32-of-89). Sacramento yielded just nine points off turnovers while scoring 23 off 25 San Antonio giveaways.

Elliott scored 10 points for the Spurs, who shot 35 percent (29-of-82) and held a 55-45 rebounding advantage.

"You can't win scoring 75 points, that's not good basketball," Robinson said.
