Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- After allowing Kevin Johnson to enjoy his night for 24 minutes, the Sacramento Kings eclipsed their own record for the biggest comeback win of the season and posted a 100-89 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Chris Webber, playing his second game after missing 10 in a row with a sprained ankle, had 34 points and 11 rebounds in the second half as Sacramento erased a 28-point second-quarter deficit and defeated Phoenix for the third time this season.

"It was amazing," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "All I said at halftime was that they had so much more energy and they were beating us to everything. We were just soft and we were giving into the situation. I just said if we're going to go down, we're going to go down being aggressive and get after them."

Webber made 11-of-14 shots in the second half, when the Kings shot 61 percent (25-of-41). Webber, who is the only player averaging at least 25 points and 10 rebounds, finished with 41 and 14.

"At halftime we didn't want to come out and play timid," Webber said. "I think I played a little timid (Tuesday) because of my ankle. I wanted to come out and be aggressive. If I re-injure it, I re-injure it. I just wanted to come out and play as hard as I can. We gave ourselves a chance in the second half. It feels good to not just (get) back in the game, but to win it."

Vlade Divac had 16 points and eight rebounds and rookie Hidayet Turkoglu added 13 and nine off the bench for Sacramento, which had come back from a 24-point deficit in a 100-97 victory over the Miami Heat on December 10.

"Things happen, you know. They had the energy in the first half and we got the energy in the second half," Divac said. "That's what happens. They were up on us by 30 points and I guess they were talking like it was over, but we had a little talk at halftime to play more aggressive in the third quarter."

Shawn Marion had 23 points and eight rebounds but missed all five of his shots in the second half for Phoenix. The 28-point lead was the largest ever blown by the Suns.

After shooting 56 percent (27-of-48) in the first two quarters, the Suns were just 27.5 percent (11-of-40) after the break.

"The shots just weren't going in," Marion said. "That still should not have affected us on the defensive end. Even though baskets weren't going down, we still should have played defense. That slacked tremendously in the second half, compared to the way our defense was in the first half."

Johnson, Phoenix's long-time point guard, had his No. 7 retired at halftime.

Marion scored 13 points in the first quarter when the Suns shot 54.5 percent (12-of-22) and took a 31-17 lead.

Rodney Rogers scored four of his 19 points during an 11-0 burst that pushed Phoenix's lead to 40-22 on Mario Elie's 3-pointer with 9:25 remaining in the second period. Elie scored all 10 of his points in the first half and played just three minutes thereafter.

Marion scored six points in a 14-4 run that he capped with a dunk to give the Suns their biggest lead, 60-32, with 3:09 left in the first half.

The Kings scored the first 12 points of the third period, cutting the deficit to 64-52 on Webber's 19-footer with 7:58 left. Phoenix responded with six straight points -- its only baskets from the field in the quarter -- to push the lead to 70-52 on a layup by Rogers with 5:59 to play.

Webber scored eight points and Divac added eight as the Kings used an 18-2 run and trimmed the margin to 72-70 when Webber made two free throws with 7.7 seconds left. Kidd made 1-of-2 free throws with 1.7 seconds remaining and the Suns took a 73-70 edge into the fourth.

"The ball movement stopped, and we took jump shots and then they just seized the momentum aand just kept it rolling and our defense, there were no adjustments they made at halftime," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "They ran the exact same stuff. We just allowed them to pass the ball easily around the perimeter."

Webber gave the Kings the lead for good at 78-77 when he hit a 20-footer with 9:29 to play. Scot Pollard, who had eight points and seven boards in 16 minutes off the bench, followed with consecutive baskets to give the Kings a five-point lead with 8:24 left.

Phoenix got within 86-83 on Tom Gugliotta's 18-footer with 5:55 to go. But Webber answered with a layup 11 seconds later, igniting a 14-0 run that Pollard capped with a follow shot with 1:40 left.
