Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber came back and Doug Christie made sure the Toronto Raptors didn't.

Webber returned from a badly sprained ankle to collect his 34th double-double and the cold-shooting Christie turned back a rally with a clutch 3-pointer with 1:41 left, lifting the Sacramento Kings to a 98-91 victory over the Raptors.

Webber had missed the last 10 games with a sprained left ankle suffered on February 13 at Utah. The Kings went 6-4 during his absence but gave up valuable ground in the race for the Western Conference's best record and clearly missed their All-Star power forward.

"They're still the same team," Raptors superstar Vince Carter said. "They still have the same intensity. C-Webb is C-Webb and he's going to bring his. By him being out, everybody else had to step up a notch, so it all evened out."

After a very slow start, Webber finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds, shooting just 7-of-22 from the field. He scored eight points in the third quarter, when the Kings took the lead for good.

"I think he needed to get this game under his belt," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Finally in the second half he got that one ball and dunked it and I think he was a little reluctant. He shot the ball really well in practice, so that surprised me. I think he was hesitating on everything. He'll get better now that he got this game under his belt. He'll get better as the week goes on."

Webber had his ankle iced after the game and did not speak with reporters.

Sacramento held a 13-point lead with 6 1/2 minutes to go before Toronto rallied within 90-87 on a jumper by Alvin Williams with 2:28 left. The teams traded empty possessions before Christie -- who had missed 10 of his first 11 shots -- sank a 3-pointer to double the lead.

"The shot felt good all night," Christie said. "That wasn't the big deal. The coach says you practice these shots all the time, trust yourself is what he emphasizes. I just made that one at a key time."

Christie and Jason Williams also scored 19 points apiece. After two free throws by Charles Oakley made it a four-point game with 1:13 to play, Williams responded with an 18-footer for a 95-89 lead with 53 seconds remaining.

Carter and Antonio Davis each scored 25 points for the Raptors, who had a five-game winning streak snapped in the opener of a four-game road trip.

Vlade Divac had 17 points and 17 rebounds for the Kings, who are in fifth place in the West but just 1 1/2 games out of the top spot, which they held before Webber went down.

"With Chris in the lineup, we have to help him," Divac said. "We have to move around and just can't stand around, especially now (that) he says he needs more time to get back fully. He's our main guy and without him we wouldn't be in this position, so it's great to have (him)."

Webber scored just six points in the first half, which ended with Toronto holding a 44-38 lead. Sacramento chipped away and took a 58-57 lead with 4:52 left in the third quarter on the last of Webber's three straight baskets.

A 3-pointer by Williams, a jumper by Peja Stojakovic and three free throws by Christie extended the lead to 71-64 and the Kings took a 73-68 advantage to the final period.

Sacramento widened the margin to 88-75 on a hoop by Scot Pollard with 6:27 to go before Toronto got back in it with a 12-2 spurt, highlighted by two 3-pointers by Chris Childs.

Stojakovic scored 10 points on just 5-of-18 shooting for the Kings, who shot under 36 percent (31-of-87) but made 31-of-46 free throws.

Williams scored 17 points for the Raptors, who shot 37 percent (33-of-90) and made 21-of-24 from the line. Carter was 9-of-25 from the field and attempted just six free throws, making them all. The discrepancy at the line was noticed by Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens.

"(Carter's) getting hit a lot and he's not getting the calls," Wilkens said. "I don't know why. He got banged going to the basket a lot tonight. He's too good of a player to not get the calls. Maybe they think he's so acrobatic that he's not getting hit, but he is."

The Kings swept the season series from the Raptors, winning a 119-118 triple-overtime contest in Toronto without Webber on February 23.
