Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber sat out a meaningless game against the the Golden State Warriors, and little-used Lawrence Funderburke took advantage of the additional minutes to shine for the Sacramento Kings.

Funderburke scored a career-high 29 points to lead the Kings to a 120-106 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Webber did not play against his former team due to a sprained right thumb, but Funderburke, who averages just 12.2 minutes a game, came off the bench to hit 13-of-16 shots and grab a season-high 11 rebounds for his first career double-double.

"It's been a really tough year for me; probably the toughest of my career, but I persevered," said Funderburke, who missed 23 games due to coach's decision, injury and personal reasons.

"Anytime the best player goes down, everybody's wondering who's going to step up. No one on this team can replace Chris Webber. He is one of the greatest players to play in a long time."

Starting for Webber, Scot Pollard added a career-high 23 points and 14 rebounds and Peja Stojakovic contributed 20 points for the Kings (61-20), who already have wrapped up the best record in the league and extended their franchise record for wins.

"I am glad to get the win and finish off with a positive note here at home," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "I had a lot of guys step up and play; Lawrence was terrific."

Sacramento finished the season with an NBA-best 36-5 mark at home and conclude the 2001-2002 campaign Wednesday against its rival, the Los Angeles Lakers.

"It was a great feeling playing in front of such great fans," said Kings center Vlade Divac, who had 10 points and eight rebounds. "Part of our success can be attributed to our fans. We have to finish strong tomorrow, and go in strong for the playoffs. the guys who haven't played much during the regular season really stepped it up tonight. They played a good game."

In addition to Webber, guard Bobby Jackson sprained his left thumb and left with 6:41 left in the second quarter and Hedo Turkoglu departed at halftime with a sprained left wrist.

"I would think none of them are going to play tomorrow," Adelman said. "We could play Saturday (in the playoffs). I would expect none of them to play (Wednesday)."

"I would have to say, if this was a more important game, the injured players would have played tonight," Pollard said. "I don't remember a game where three players have gone down with injuries. It's nice that these games don't matter and these guys have time to rest."

Rookie Jason Richardson scored a career-high 40 points, Dean Oliver had 15 and Gilbert Arenas -- also a rookie -- chipped in 14, a career-high nine rebounds and nine assists as Golden State dropped its 10th straight game to Sacramento and sixth in a row overall.

"To be honest, I didn't see a lot of positives," Warriors coach Brian Winters said. "Jason played very well, and I guess that's a positive. Defensively, we were not very good at all. The bench guys came in and did a nice job for them. They get very limited minutes, and they came in a little hungrier thatn our guys tonight. We broke down in the pick-and-roll, and we let their guys catch the ball too easily."

Richardson was 18-of-28 and became first NBA rookie to score 40 or more points since Elton Brand, who had 44 on April 13, 2000. The last time a first-year Warrior did so was on March 4, 1989 when Mitch Richmond scored 47 against Sacramento.

"Yeah, I was feeling it out there," Richardson said. "We've (had) two games left in the season, and I just want to finish strong. I was just pumped to play this game. I wanted everyone to play hard, and that's what we were trying to do. I think our team played OK today. When you start off hitting a lot of jump shots, they start playing you tight, and it's easier to get to the hoop."

Golden State opened an 18-11 lead with 6:12 left in the first quarter and owned a 33-29 advantage at the end of the period as Richardson scored 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting.

In the second, Sacramento turned a two-point deficit into a 55-45 lead with a 16-4 run capped by Funderburke's jumper with 3:15 remaining. Funderburke made nine straight shots in the quarter en route to 13 points.

The Kings' lead reached 20 points in the fourth when they started the quarter with a 12-4 spurt, taking a 107-87 lead on a layup by Mateen Cleaves with 7:23 to go.

"It was just one of those games where everyone was hitting shots," Arenas said. "Funderburke was pretty much on fire. Pollard had a pretty good game. They were just up and down at the defensive end. It was just a free ballgame. It started off as a basketball game, but they started pulling away a little bit, and then it was like they were resting for the playoffs."

Mike Bibby scored 15 points and Gerald Wallace added eight for Sacramento, which shot 54 percent (49-of-91) and held a 52-35 edge in rebounding.

The Warriors shot 48 percent (44-of-92) and scored 21 points off 21 turnovers by the Kings.
