Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Different season, different sidelined superstar, same superb start for the Sacramento Kings. Bobby Jackson continued his stellar play with 24 points as the Kings matched last season's 20-game start and remained unbeaten at home with a 98-86 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Chris Webber overcame a slow start to collect 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings, who raced to a 15-5 start for the second straight season. Sacramento improved to 10-0 at Arco Arena. Last season, the Kings began the season without Webber, their superstar forward who was sidelined with a sprained ankle. They overcame his absence by winning 15 of their first 20 games. This season, the Kings have posted the same record without point guard Mike Bibby as they have climbed to the top of the Pacific Division. They also have made due for stretches without All-Star forward Peja Stojakovic, swingman Hedo Turkoglu and guard Doug Christie. "If you look at everything and see what has happened, the way we have played, we are happy with that record," Christie said. "This team wants to win and we know we still have work to do." "When we have one of our key guys out like we did last year, it's very important for us to maintain a good record," Jackson added. Jackson has had a lot to do with that, moving into the starting lineup to replace Bibby and posting the best season of his career. He burned his former team with 8-of-16 shooting, including 5-of-7 from 3-point range. "I just want to beat the dirt off their backs every time we play them," Jackson said. Despite his success, Jackson is looking forward to Bibby's return. Recuperating from a broken foot, Bibby was shooting jumpers before the game and is expected to be back December 15. "He can hurry up and come back," Jackson said. "I'm ready to go back to the bench and have my 20-25 minutes a night. That's only going to make us better." "It was good to see Bibby shooting again," Christie said. "He's a big part of the team." Troy Hudson had 19 points and eight assists and Kevin Garnett added 18, nine and 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who handed the Kings their worst loss of the season on Wednesday, a 90-74 setback in Minnesota. "This is the same team we had down by 20 points," Garnett said. "I don't think we anticipated ourselves coming out like we did. There were times in the game where we showed sparks, but we just couldn't get it done." Jackson and Gerald Wallace scored eight points each in the first quarter, when the Kings led by 11 points before settling for a 28-20 advantage. A driving layup by Damon Jones pushed the margin to 43-29 before the Wolves closed the second quarter with a 17-5 run, pulling within 48-46 at halftime. A 3-pointer by Rod Strickland made it 67-66 with 1:54 left in the third quarter, but a 3-pointer by Jackson made it 74-68 entering the final period. Minnesota still was within 80-78 after a basket by Strickland with 8:54 to go but sputtered down the stretch as six different Sacramento players scored in a 14-4 run. Jackson set up Keon Clark for a thunderous dunk, then completed a three-point play for a 94-82 lead with 2:47 left. "You've got to have a run in the fourth quarter, and that was a crucial run," Jackson said. "You can't trade baskets in the fourth." Newcomer Jim Jackson scored 13 points off the bench and starters Wallace, Christie and Vlade Divac added 10 apiece for the Kings, who shot 47 percent (39-of-83). Clark had five points, eight rebounds and six blocks. Kendall Gill scored 11 points and Strickland and Rasho Nesterovic added 10 apiece for the Wolves, who shot 43.5 percent (37-of-85).
