Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber and Peja Stojakovic scored 29 of their combined 70 points in the fourth quarter as the Sacramento Kings erased a 13-point second-half deficit and defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 109-102.

Webber had 34 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists and Stojakovic tied a season high with 36 points for Sacramento, which won its ninth straight game and improved its NBA-best home mark to 21-1 with its 14th consecutive victory at Arco Arena.

"We felt that this is our home, we have to protect it," Webber said. "I have played on bad teams before, so I know the mentality -- if you can't win all the games, win the big ones, and that is what Cleveland tried to do tonight. I don't want to play a close game like this again, but I think it was needed for us."

The nine-game winning streak is the longest of the Kansas City-Sacramento Kings era of the franchise, which was known as the Royals prior to moving from Cincinnati before the 1972-73 season. The franchise record for consecutive wins is 15, set during the 1949-50 season when it was based in Rochester, New York.

Cleveland, which suffered its seventh straight loss, led by as many as 13 points after Wesley Person's 3-pointer made it 62-49 with 9:36 left in the third quarter. But Stojakovic had seven points over the final 75 seconds as Sacramento whittled the deficit to 75-74 entering the final period.

Webber began the fourth quarter with a jumper to put the Kings ahead for good. Sacramento scored the next four points and opened a 102-89 lead when Stojakovic made a pair of free throws with 3:34 remaining.

"We played good defense in the third quarter," Stojakovic said. "We just have to be more aggressive, especially in the third and fourth quarters. The third quarter was definitely the turning point in this game. We really stepped up defensively and we made some big shots."

Lamond Murray led five Cavs in double figures with 22 points. Andre Miller chipped in 17 and 13 assists and Jumaine Jones added 16 points and seven rebounds for Cleveland, which fell to 4-16 on the road.

"We were in the game all the way to the fourth quarter, and they hit some big shots," Jones said. "We couldn't execute on the defensive end, and they hit shots. It's all about runs and they made their run."

Sacramento point guard Mike Bibby (strained right knee) and center Vlade Divac (sprained right shoulder) returned from their injuries and scored eight and six points, respectively.

"My shoulder is getting better, but it is still a little sore," Divac said. "I will be OK in a couple of days. I didn't practice for a while, so that gave my shoulder some time to heal."

The Kings led 30-23 after one quarter and had a 43-35 edge after Scot Pollard hit two free throws with 5:22 left in the second period. But Cleveland scored the next nine points and closed the half on a 17-4 run, taking a 52-47 lead at the break.

"I thought we came at the start of the game pretty good, we just didn't sustain it in the second quarter," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We really got soft and didn't move the ball at all. You're going to have games like that, you just hope you learn a lesson from them."

Sacramento shot a torrid 68 percent (13-of-19) in the fourth quarter, while Cleveland made just 36 percent (8-of-22).

"It's all about executing down the stretch," Jones said. "We just had that lapse at the end. Once we can keep it going through the fourth quarter, we'll be fine."

"We did some good things tonight, and that's what's disheartening," Cleveland coach John Lucas said. "We played very strong in the game tonight and still came out on the short end of the stick."
