Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Even Chris Webber might have to feel a little sympathy for his former team after this one.

Webber, normally out to get the franchises that let him go, had 19 points and 11 rebounds in just over three quarters before resting comfortably on the bench as the Sacramento Kings blew out the floundering Washington Wizards, 106-72.

Webber spent four seasons with Washington before being dealt to Sacramento for Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe on May 14, 1998. Since his departure, the Wizards have gone 52-105, including tonight's embarrassing defeat which dropped them to 5-20 this season.

Washington has lost 10 of its last 11 games while Webber and the Kings coasted to their 11th win in 12 games at Arco Arena this season and 10th victory in 12 contests overall.

"No, I don't feel any sympathy but (Washington) is a place I miss dearly," Webber admitted. "You know guys that I love. I miss Juwan (Howard), he made me such a better player. With the skills that I've developed now, if I played with him, I could only imagine what type of player I would be. I miss them. I wish I had these skills then, when I played with them. But I don't really feel bad for the organization."

Webber lit up the Golden State Warriors -- his first team -- for 62 points and 25 rebounds over two games in November and seemed just as hungry to hand it to the Wizards tonight, taking 22 shots in 32 minutes.

Lawrence Funderburke benefited from the excess garbage time in the second half, scoring a season-high 16 points. Vlade Divac and Doug Christie added 15 apiece for the Kings, who used a 28-11 second quarter to break open the game.

"Lawrence could do that every night," Webber said. "And for me to eat up all his time and for him to still be cheering me on and getting on me and all those types of things, that means more to me than anything else."

Rod Strickland scored 13 points and Tyrone Nesby added 12 for Washington, which was unable to build on Sunday's 103-94 triumph over the Los Angeles Clippers -- their only win since November 25.

"They got out and ran us in the second quarter," Strickland said. "We didn't do a good job of getting back. They carried the momentum into the second half. They just outplayed us. Bottom line is, we need to go out against Vancouver (on Wednesday) and get a win."

Howard and Richard Hamilton combined for 61 points against the Clippers but managed just 17 between them tonight as the Wizards shot 37 percent (30-of-82) and committed 24 turnovers while forcing just nine.

"Obviously, they are an outstanding team," Washington coach Leonard Hamilton said. "And beating them at their own game was something that we never felt coming in here that we needed to attempt."

Washington did appear to come out with some fire early, taking a 23-21 lead after one period behind seven points by Strickland. But Webber scored consecutive baskets to open the second quarter, including an emphatic slam that put Sacramento in front, 25-23.

"We really struggled early," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We finally got it going. When (the reserves) came in in the second quarter, they really gave us some energy and played really well."

Trailing 27-25 with 10:36 left in the first half, the Kings took control for good. Jon Barry's jumper sparked a 17-2 run that Funderburke highlighted with eight points, giving Sacramento a 42-29 cushion 3:14 before intermission.

"After I made the first bucket, I was ready to go," Funderburke said. "You have games like that every once in a while. So you relish that. But most importantly, I'm just very concerned that we came away with the victory. And whatever I can do to help the team win, that's all that matters."

Webber added a 17-footer, two free throws and a dunk in the third quarter before hitting a 21-footer to make it 76-54 entering the final 12 minutes. His seven-footer opened the fourth quarter scoring and moments later he went to the bench for Funderburke with the Kings holding a commanding 80-55 lead.

Sacramento forward Scot Pollard matched a career high with four blocks but left the game midway through the fourth quarter with a sprained ankle.

The Kings shot 42 percent (41-of-97) and outscored the Wizards, 23-9, on the break.
