Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber totaled 30 points and 14 rebounds and Jason Williams scored a season-high 24 points as the Sacramento Kings finished off an impressive homestand with a 108-103 triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Webber went 13-of-30 from the floor and handed out five assists, but it was Williams who had the hot hand, hitting 9-of-17 shots from the floor to go with eight assists in 37 solid minutes.

"I'm just thankful for the win," Williams said. "All the points will take care of themselves. I'm just trying to come out and do whatever it takes to get the win. I had open looks, so I knocked them down."

The Kings improved to 16-3 at Arco Arena and finished the tough homestand with a 5-2 mark. Three games went to overtime and the other four were decided by five points or less.

Peja Stojakovic scored 27 points for Sacramento, which remained one game behind first-place Portland in the Pacific Division.

Chris Gatling poured in a career-high 38 points for the Cavaliers, who have lost nine of 11 since after an impressive 15-7 start.

Gatling buried 17-of-25 shots in 41 minutes for Cleveland, which shot 43.5 percent (40-of-92) and forced 21 turnovers but seemed unable to keep up with the Kings' frantic pace.

"I try to feel like that every night," Gatling said. "We didn't win, so it went for nothing. It's not a personal thing. If I would have scored one point and we would have won, I like that better than scoring 38 and losing."

"I know Gatling, I was a young boy when we were at Golden State," Webber said of his former teammate. "I'm happy for him in a sense, but I'm just happy that we got the win."

Leading 36-34 after one quarter and 59-55 at the half, the Kings had trouble shaking the undermanned Cavs, who were without injured rookie center Chris Mihm (right knee) and forward Matt Harpring (left ankle).

Despite remaining within striking distance, Cleveland never was able to overtake Sacramento. A 3-pointer by Lamond Murray and Gatling's ensuing dunk got the Cavs even at 69-69 with 5:48 remaining in the third quarter.

"It was tough to guard (Gatling) today," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "He is the quickest big guy in the league, but that's a great scenario. He can score 40 or 50, we don't care. If you go for his shot, he goes around you, but if you play off him, he can shoot. That's his game."

Webber made a basket, Doug Christie hit a pair of technical free throws, Williams converted a three-point play and Stojakovic added a layup to give the Kings the lead for good, 78-69, with 2:28 remaining in the third quarter.

Webber added three quick baskets early in the fourth quarter and a basket by Stojakovic made it 94-80 with 8:36 to play.

The Kings shot 48 percent (41-of-86) and held a 47-43 rebounding edge.

Andre Miller scored 29 points -- one shy of a career high -- and handed out seven assists, and Clarence Weatherspoon and Murray added 12 and 10 points, respectively, for the Cavs, who had won five of their previous eight visits to Sacramento.

"(Williams) got into the game early," Miller said of his fellow point guard. "Everybody seemed to be knocking down shots and he was one of them. We tried to fight back and get back in the game, but they pulled away in the end."

Cleveland posted a 102-100 overtime victory over the Kings at Gund Arena on November 1.

The Cavs slipped to 3-3 when scoring 100 or more points while the Kings improved to 15-3 when breaking the century mark.
