Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The matchup between the league's best team and the league's worst team was much closer than expected.

Peja Stojakovic had 29 points and nine rebounds and Chris Webber added 26 and 11 as the Sacramento Kings survived a scare for their third straight win, a 107-103 triumph over the Chicago Bulls.

The Kings (45-17) needed a victory to maintain their half-game lead over the Dallas Mavericks for the best record in the league while the Bulls (16-48) were just trying to improve upon the NBA's worst record.

Sacramento led by as many as nine late in the third quarter, but Chicago rallied to take a 92-90 lead on rookie Eddie Robinson's breakaway dunk with 6:06 remaining.

"In the fourth quarter it was anybody's game," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "We just made some plays down the stretch that we had to in order to win."

The Bulls had a 100-99 edge after rookie Eddy Curry sank a turnaround jumper with 82 seconds left, but Webber drained an 18-foot jumper just 14 seconds later to give the Kings the lead for good.

Chicago's Travis Best made an errant pass into the hands of Webber before Stojakovic was called for an offensive foul with 32 seconds to go. But Rose missed a short jumper and Vlade Divac made 1-of-2 free throws for an 102-100 advantage with 20 seconds to play.

Rose committed a turnover and Divac, a 62 percent free-throw shooter, sank a pair from the line with 13 seconds left to seal the victory.

Divac finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds as Sacramento extend its winning streak over Chicago to six games.

The Kings shot just 44 percent (38-of-86) but held a 50-36 rebounding advantage. They grabbed 23 offensive rebounds leading to 21 second-chance points.

"We got the ball back a lot tonight," Adelman said. "Those offensive rebounds were the difference. We also had no answer for Jalen the whole game until the last couple of possessions."

Rose collected 35 points and 13 assists but was held scoreless and committed half of his four turnovers in the final 4 1/2 minutes.

Curry scored 17 points and fellow rookie Tyson Chandler had 12 points and 12 rebounds as the host Bulls lost their sixth straight game.

Chicago fell to 12-25 under coach Bill Cartwright, who was given a three-year extension prior to the game.

"I choose to look at the positives that we did in this game, I was just happy that we had the opportunity to win the game," he said.

"Our guys came out prepared and did a good job. (The Kings) have great talents. We were just where we wanted to be. We had an opportunity to win the game and if we get that opportunity every night we'll be fine, absolutely fine."

The Bulls made nine of their first 13 shots to take their largest lead, 22-9, just over six minutes into the game.

"We got off to a good start, which always helps, and we were just trying to ride the momentum as long as we could," Rose said. "The crowd was into the game, they did a good job of keeping us fired up."

Chicago had a 27-14 cushion with 4:07 to go before the Kings closed the period with 11 consecutive points to pull within 27-25.

The Bulls had a 37-36 edge with 9:04 remaining in the first half, but Sacramento scored 23 of the next 34 points and took its largest lead, 59-48, on a layup by Stojakovic with 58 seconds left.
