Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Peja Stojakovic made the top of the Western Conference standings as tight as teammate Chris Webber's new hairdo.

Stojakovic scored 31 points and was outstanding on both ends of the court as the Sacramento Kings moved within one-half game of the top spot in the West with a 105-90 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Sporting a new look of cornrows, Webber added 26 points for the Kings (42-19), who lead the Pacific Division and are right behind Utah (43-19) and San Antonio (43-19) for the best record in the powerful West.

"It's gonna change with the weather," Webber said of his new look. "I don't even know what I'll do for tomorrow. Maybe I'll shave it again."

The Kings improved to 4-0 since the return of Webber, their All-Star power forward who missed 10 games after spraining his ankle in a 97-94 overtime victory at Utah on February 13.

But the star was Stojakovic, who fueled the decisive run in the third quarter and displayed uncommon defense as he helped shut out Donyell Marshall, who scored 31 points in the last meeting between the teams.

"Last time we played them, I allowed him to get to the basket," Stojakovic said. "He's so long that he's tough to guard. We did a good job of helping out and rebounding. We really played great team defense."

"They were more aggressive. I couldn't find an open shot today," said Marshall, who was 0-of-4 in 20 minutes. "The shots weren't falling and Peja came out and played well."

Sacramento forced 23 turnovers and limited Karl Malone to just eight shots. Malone made seven shots but had six turnovers.

"We really defended them well," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We were active and got our hands on a lot of balls."

"I think it was a team effort," Webber said. "I was on Malone a lot but because of the lineup they put in, Scot (Pollard) was on Malone a lot and also Vlade (Divac). It was a group effort. We couldn't stop him from getting to the line but he only got eight shots from the field."

John Starks scored 21 points and Malone and Danny Manning added 20 apiece for the Jazz, who had a four-game winning streak snapped.

"They manhandled us all day long and did a great job of getting their hands on basketballs," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We couldn't pass the ball and had a tough time with 23 turnovers. When you come on the road and try to play a team and compete with that many turnovers, you don't deserve a chance to win."

Malone's jumper with 8:58 left in the third quarter gave Utah a 50-49 lead before Sacramento rattled off nine straight points. Stojakovic, who made 11-of-17 shots, had a 3-pointer before he hit a jumper that gave the Kings a 58-50 lead with 7:19 to go.

The Jazz still were within 73-64 when Jason Williams threw in a 25-footer at the third-quarter buzzer.

Utah closed to 79-73 with 7:40 remaining on a layup by Manning, who scored 10 points in the fourth quarter. But Utah's Bryon Russell flagrantly fouled Sacramento rookie Hidayet Turkoglu, who made both free throws.

Webber made a 20-footer and Pollard scored inside for an 85-73 lead with 6:15 to go and the Jazz got no closer than nine points thereafter.

"We want to play as well as we can," Webber said. "Each game is important and if we take it that way, that we want to win every game, then you don't get lost in the big picture. Every game is played at a high level now."

Doug Christie scored 14 points and Williams added 12 for the Kings, who shot 47 percent (36-of-76) and made 26-of-31 free throws. Sacramento begins a four-game East Coast road trip on Tuesday.

"It was a big game for us, a big challenge, playing this team at home before we go out on the road trip," Adelman said. "This is going to be a defining part of our season in the next two weeks."

John Stockton handed out nine assists for the Jazz, who fell to 1-2 against the Kings in what has become one of the NBA's better rivalries over the last three seasons.

"This is my first season within the rivalry but it's obvious you have two teams with different styles of play and it's always going to be a test to see which is going to be better," Marshall said.
