Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings did not need Chris Webber at the start, but they needed all the help they could get from him at the finish.

The league-leading Kings nearly blew a 20-point lead before barely holding on for a 118-116 victory over the lowly Golden State Warriors for their 10th straight win.

Webber scored 31 points against his former team to lead six players in double figures for the Kings (59-19), who reduced their magic number for clinching the best record in the NBA and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs to one. But it was not as easy as it seemed it would be.

Sacramento raced to a 30-10 lead without a single point from Webber, who scored 22 after halftime. The Kings maintained control throughout and took a 97-82 lead into the fourth quarter, where their offense sputtered.

Webber scored 16 points in the final period as the Kings staved off a furious rally by the Warriors. Trailing 116-107 with just over two minutes to play, Golden State scored seven straight points, closing to 116-114 on a layup by rookie Gilbert Arenas with 45 seconds left.

"I was more mad than nervous during the fourth quarter because we let them back into the game," said Webber, who also had 12 rebounds.

Webber missed a jumper, giving the Warriors a chance to tie. Arenas missed a drive, but the Kings knocked the ball out of bounds with 16 seconds left.

Following a wild scramble, rookie Jason Richardson missed an open 3-pointer and Larry Hughes missed a one-handed follow dunk. Richardson was 3-of-15 from the field.

Peja Stojakovic rebounded and was fouled with 0.5 seconds to go. His two free throws sealed Sacramento's franchise-record eighth straight road win.

"You have to give credit to the Warriors. They kept coming at us hard," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "It was almost like it was too easy in the first quarter because we were shooting so well, and everything was going great."

Stojakovic scored 24 points and Mike Bibby added 17 for the Kings, who shot 53.5 percent (46-of-86) from the field and beat the Warriors for the ninth straight time.

For the 10th time this season, Sacramento never trailed.

"We allowed them to score 63 points in the first half, but we played pretty good," Divac said. "I like the way we played tonight. It was kind of a wake-up call for us."

Antawn Jamison scored 20 points and Hughes -- who has been benched of late -- added 18 for Golden State, which has lost three in a row and 16 of 19. The Warriors (20-58) have to win three of their last four games to avoid 60 losses for a third straight season, which would tie an NBA record.

"Early on, we could have gotten blown out, but we didn't," Warriors coach Brian Winters said. "Late in the game, we got down 17, 18 points and we could have given up then, too, but we just kept coming back. We had a chance at the end."

It took the Kings less than eight minutes to open a 20-point lead as they made 13 of their first 14 shots. The Warriors closed to 38-27 after one quarter and 73-64 at halftime as the teams raced up and down the court in breakneck fashion.

Webber carried the Kings for most of the fourth quarter. A drive by Vlade Divac gave the Kings their late lead, but Jamison made a free throw and Arenas scored twice around a layup by Hughes.

Doug Christie had 15 points and five steals and Divac added 12 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.

Arenas and Danny Fortson scored 17 points apiece for Golden State, which shot 45 percent (46-of-103) and also had six players in double figures.
