Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- If this was the night that the Los Angeles Lakers gave away control of the Pacific Division to the Sacramento Kings, they did so in fine fashion.

The Lakers looked lax in a 108-84 loss to the Kings, who got 25 points and 12 rebounds from Chris Webber and opened a two-game lead atop the division.

In their worst loss of the season, the Lakers shot less than 36 percent (33-of-93) from the field as they looked lost without injured All-Star guard Kobe Bryant. They scored just 31 points in the second half, when they appeared to quit.

"There are going to be games like this, (but) there is no doubt about it, you don't want it to happen on a night like tonight when it is an important ballgame," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said.

Coming off a draining overtime win over New York on Tuesday, the Kings figured to be tired. Instead, they used their depth to toy with the Lakers, avenging Sunday's home loss and beating the defending NBA champions for the first time this season.

"They win in overtime against a New York team that plays very physical so they should have looked like we looked tonight," Lakers guard Brian Shaw said.

"It was kind of payback for Sunday," said Kings swingman Peja Stojakovic. "We looked kind of fresh, didn't we? They looked tired and they were home."

Since the Kings moved from Kansas City in 1985, they never have won a division title. In the same span, the Lakers have won three NBA titles and six Pacific Division crowns.

However, the balance of power may have shifted Wednesday night. The Kings (48-22) moved two games ahead of the Lakers (47-25). Portland (46-25) also must erase three games in the loss column to prevent Sacramento from winning the division and claiming one of the top two seeds in the powerful Western Conference.

"One of our best road wins," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We have control of our destiny right now in the division. We have to just win games. It is going to be a dogfight."

"I'm just happy to be in a position where every game is important," Webber added.

Stojakovic scored 22 points and Turkish rookie Hidayet Turkoglu added 17 off the bench for the Kings, who shot 51 percent (41-of-81), including 7-of-15 from 3-point range.

While Webber got plenty of help, Lakers superstar Shaquille O'Neal was forced to go it alone. He had 33 points and 11 rebounds but without Bryant was smothered on defense and got no help from his teammates.

"It was sad because we had a lot to play for tonight and we really didn't give Shaq any help," Shaw said.

Rick Fox scored 12 points but made just 3-of-11 shots. Derek Fisher scored nine points on 4-of-14 shooting. Reserve forward Devean George scored eight and was 3-of-13.

"They didn't have Kobe the other day and they beat us, so I don't buy into all that," Webber said.

"I don't think Kobe's legs are fresh, but we sure could have used him," Fox said.

Fox was the antagonist in the key moment of the game. He made a 3-pointer earluy in the third quarter that pulled Los Angeles within 61-58 but was given a technical foul for taunting. The Lakers were outscored 24-12 the rest of the period.

"That's a problem I have when someone makes something personal with me," Fox said. "I'm not the type of person that deals well with that. Where I'm from, there's certain things that send me over the edge. ... When it becomes personal to me, it's supposed to be personal to all of us. We didn't respond that way. They did."

Webber scored nine points and Stojakovic eight in the third quarter, which ended with the Kings holding an 85-70 lead. A 3-pointer by Stojakovic pushed the advantage to 92-72 with 9 1/2 minutes to go and it was basically garbage time thereafter.

O'Neal scored 17 points in the first quarter, when the Lakers led by as many as eight before settling for a 30-27 edge. The Kings took the lead for good at 53-51 on a 3-pointer by Turkoglu and opened a 57-53 halftime advantage.
