Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- In the first quarter, the Sacramento Kings looked like all they needed was five players. After that, it was clear they missed their deep bench.

The Miami Heat waited until Sacramento's starters wore down and exploded with a 26-2 run in the second quarter to take control, rolling to a 114-104 victory over the shorthanded Kings.

Sacramento dressed the minimum eight players after All-Star center Vlade Divac, backup power forward Scot Pollard, backup point guard Bobby Jackson and reserve Art Long all were suspended one game for their role in a fight during Tuesday's victory over Orlando.

"I would have loved to have played (the Heat) with a full squad," Sacramento's Chris Webber said. "You only get to play this team two times a year and that's how it goes so you have got to live with it."

The Kings' starters came out with something to prove and raced to a 35-23 lead after one quarter, led by 19 points from their starting backcourt of Jason Williams and Doug Christie.

"They came out and stung us quick," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "Then we caught fire ourselves."

Sacramento went up by 17 points early in the second quarter before the roof caved in.

Anthony Mason and Cedric Ceballos each scored 10 points and Tim Hardaway added six as Miami scored 26 of the next 28 points and stormed back for a 49-42 lead.

The Kings led, 40-23, with 10:17 left in the second quarter when Mason sank a short hook shot in the lane. Ceballos followed with two free throws and Hardaway drained a 3-pointer to bring Miami within 10 and give it the momentum.

Mason scored four staight points, Hardaway made a pair from the line and the Heat tied the game when Ceballos made back-to-back fast-break layups on assists from Anthony Carter, who dished out 10 overall.

Webber snapped Sacramento's 5:24 scoreless stretch with a 12-foot hook shot that gave the Kings the lead once again. Mason retaliated with a hook shot of his own to tie the game once again and Ceballos gave Miami the lead for good with another wide-open layup.

At that point, the Kings were out of gas and a 3-pointer by Hardaway almost ensured Miami would win the game long before it was over.

Webber was Sacramento's only player to score during that stretch and the rest of the team was 0-of-8 from the floor as Miami mounted its assault.

"We were our own worst enemies, especially the way we started the game," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "We were quick shooting the ball early. We were making a lot of shots, but when we started missing they got into the open court so easily because we were never balanced."

The Kings never really recovered and the Heat went on to snap a two-game losing streak and pulled into a tie with New York for second place in the Atlantic Division.

Mason had 25 points and 13 rebounds and Ceballos finished with a season-high 21 and 11.

"(Ceballos) is a shot-maker and he is very efficient and productive," Riley said. "I like what he has done for us the last couple of games. He has gotten the call and he has produced."

Hardaway scored 20 points and drained 4-of-6 from the arc for Miami which made 8-of-20 from 3-point range and posted a season-high point total.

"I haven't been on a team that has scored 114 in a long time," Hardaway said. "Normally we get 114 points in two games so it was fun."

"I told (Hardaway) to take every open shot he gets," Riley said. "We have to have him taking shots. Whether or not they go in is a different subject."

Brian Grant scored 23 points on 10-of-15 shooting and was able to flourish inside without Divac and Pollard defending the paint.

Webber had 26 points and 17 rebounds but made just 9-of-25 shots and played 43 straight minutes in the game.

"It was hard to get him out of there because they had Mason or Grant and we were overmatched," Adelman said. "He played hard, our whole team played hard. Just not very good."

Christie scored 24 points and Peja Stojakovic added 17 for Sacramento, which fell to 1-1 on its four-game road trip.
