Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- With a big game against the San Antonio Spurs in their sights, the Sacramento Kings almost overlooked the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Kings, who are battling for the Western Conference crown, blew a 11-point lead and faltered down the stretch before controlling overtime to defeat the Los Angeles Clippers, 116-109.

Lamar Odom's two free throws gave Los Angeles a 106-106 with 5.5 seconds remaining in regulation. Chris Webber had a chance to win the game with less than two seconds left but missed a 13-foot jumper from the right sideline.

The Kings outscored Los Angeles, 10-3, in overtime. They scored five straight points before rookie Darius Miles made 1-of-2 free throws with 1:56 to go in the extra session.

Webber answered with a hook and Miles missed a jumper. Peja Stojakovic nailed a 3-pointer with 40 seconds left, giving Sacramento a 116-107 lead.

"I finally made some shots," said Stojakovic, who had 27 points and 10 rebounds. "I struggled the last couple of games. I'm glad I made a couple of 3-pointers tonight."

The Clippers' only basket of overtime came with seven seconds left as Eric Piatkowski made a layup.

"You just have to make plays in the overtime and they did," Los Angeles coach Alvin Gentry said. "When they needed a basket, they threw it to Webber, and he came up with a big jump hook that gave them a six-point lead. That's why they have over 50 wins and are right there for the playoffs."

The front line of Webber, Stojakovic and Vlade Divac combined for 78 points and 31 rebounds for the Kings, who have won four in a row but are 2 1/2 games behind San Antonio for top spot in the West.

Sacramento, which visits San Antonio on Thursday, remained one game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers for the Pacific Division lead.

"The West is strong, 1 through 8, anybody can beat anybody on any given night," Kings guard Bobby Jackson said. "Our expectations are really high for ourselves. We didn't take care of business tonight, we kind of let them hang around and do what they wanted to do. They got confidence. If we play like that in the playoffs, we're going to be out in the first round."

Odom scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who fell to 3-10 in overtime. The Kings improved to 8-4.

Los Angeles tied the 1950-51 New York Knicks for the second-most overtime contests in one season with 13 -- one less than the 1990-91 Philadelphia 76ers. It tied the mark for most losses set by the 1952-53 Baltimore Bullets.

"They made the plays at the end and we didn't, which is kind of what we've suffered from all year," Gentry said. "That was like the 97th overtime game we've played, I think. We have to learn to execute, we did a very poor job of executing in the overtime, and that has been a problem throughout the year. We get to a certain point and we do all the things we are supposed to do over the course of the game, and we get into overtime and decide to go out on our own or not do the things that we're asked to do."

The Kings tied the record for most wins, set by the 1977-78 Milwaukee Bucks and tied by the 1990-91 Philadelphia squad.

A basket by Webber put Sacramento ahead, 80-69, with 4:15 left in the third quarter but the Clippers finished the period with a 15-3 run to cut the Kings' advantage to one point.

"We didn't defend them real well, especially in the third quarter but we stayed with them and got a win," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said.

Los Angeles took an 87-83 lead at the outset of the fourth as Corey Maggette drained a 3-pointer.

Maggette hit a jumper as Los Angeles matched its largest lead of the game, 93-89, with 9:34 left before Sacramento reeled off nine consecutive points, forging a 98-93 edge on a jumper by Jackson with 7:07 to go.

Michael Olowokandi's three-point play knotted the game at 102-102 with 3:30 left. Divac answered with his own three-point play.

Odom cut the deficit to a basket. Sacramento's Doug Christie, third in the league in free-throw shooting, made only 1-of-2 from the line with 18 seconds left, allowing Odom to tie the game a final time three seconds later.

Sacramento has won six of the last seven meetings with Los Angeles.

Webber finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds, Divac added 20 and 10 and Jason Williams contributed 15 points for the Kings, who shot 49 percent (44-of-90) and converted 23-of-27 from the line.

"Those guys can shoot," said Clippers guard Jeff McInnis, who had 16 points and 10 assists. "It doesn't matter which one it is, the rim is like a magnet. Even Vlade was out there shooting long balls. The guys is so smooth and crafty. They did what they had to do to win the game. Webber made some big baskets, and when they were in trouble Vlade did what he needed to do to get on the free-throw line. You just can't speak enough about Stojakovic and those guys."

Maggette scored 16 points, Miles had 14 and Olowokandi chipped in with 13 and eight rebounds for Los Angeles, which shot 47.5 percent (47-of-99).
