Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings quickly turned one of the NBA's marquee matchups into a mismatch. Peja Stojakovic scored 24 points and Mike Bibby added 23 as the Kings built a huge lead and rolled to a 118-82 rout of the Nets, who had a 10-game winning streak stopped. Entering the contest tied for the NBA's second-best record at 26-9, the Kings throughly embarrassed the Nets, who were trying to match the longest winning streak in club history. "I remember winning a lot of statement games last season and than losing in game seven," Kings forward Chris Webber said. "Every game is a statement game for us until we win a championship. That would be the biggest statement. We wanted to show what we could do against the best, and they are definitely one of the best." Sacramento, which came within a win of playing the Nets in the NBA Finals last season, had some extra motivation after suffering a 117-83 loss here in February. "I don't think it was retribution," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We wanted to show people here that we are a better team than we played last year. We just didn't play well here. "We probably caught them at a good time. They've been winning so easily, either at home or on the road. I've seen our team do the same thing when they thought it was going to be easy. Give our guys credit - 48 minutes, we were solid." Stojakovic, Bibby and the rest of the Kings got some revenge, leading by as many 30 points in the first half and by 42 after intermission. Stojakovic led the way with 21 points in the first half, while Bibby - who outplayed Jason Kidd - and Chris Webber each added 15. Sacramento shot a blistering 60 percent (27-of-45) in the opening 24 minutes. Jason Collins, Lucious Harris and Anthony Johnson each had 11 points for New Jersey, which had a team-record 13-game home winning streak snapped and fell to 18-2 at Continental Airlines Arena. The Nets' other home loss came against league-leading Dallas. "Not a good time to play one of our worst games," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "You have to give them a lot of credit. They are a very, very good basketball team. They are the best team we've played this year. We just didn't have it on either end of the court." With a playoff-like atomosphere, the defending Eastern Conference champions were playing before just their third home sellout of the season. The Kings wasted little time turning the crowd against the home team. Both teams came out on fire and the Nets took their last lead at 19-17 on Collins' hook with 5:43 left in the first quarter. But the Kings took over when Kidd went to the bench. Keon Clark answered with a hook, Bibby scored four straight points and Stokjakovic the next seven to cap a 13-0 run and give the Kings a 30-19 lead. Sacramento made 12 of its first 14 shots. Christie had perhaps the signature play of the contest, making a pass between his legs on the fast break to Stojakovic, who finished with a dunk for a 32-21 advantage. The Kings led by 11 after a first quarter in which they made made 14-of-21 shots. Even when Kidd returned, Sacramento continued to pour it on, using a 21-6 spurt to start the second quarter. Former Net Jim Jackson's three-point play made it 55-29 at the 4:18 mark and Stojakovic had a pair of 3-pointers in the burst. "I played aggressively tonight and got a lot of good looks," said Stojakovic, who made 9-of-16 shots. "We really moved the ball well tonight. Mike and Chris played the pick-and-roll to draw attention and that left us open for good shots." The Kings' "Big Three" of Stojakovic, Webber and Bibby dominated the first half, combining to make 20-of-30 shots from the field. While Sacramento had its best players producing, it was a different story for New Jersey. Kenyon Martin failed to get anything going against Webber and Kidd made just 4-of-12 shots before halftime. Kidd attempted just five shots in the second half and finished with 10 points. "Our job is to go out there and play," Kidd said. "All good streaks come to an end. We obviously want to go out there and play hard, but tonight we lost at home. We had a good run and will improve from this loss." Webber's 17-footer with 9.7 seconds left gave the Kings their biggest lead of the first half at 69-39. Webber went 7-of-10 from the field and ended up with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Jackson added 12 points and Christie 10 for the Kings, who shot 52 percent (46-of-89) and held a 49-41 rebounding edge. The Nets shot 39 percent (34-of-88) and committed 15 turnovers. It was never close after intermission as the Kings used a 18-9 run to start the half, opening an 87-50 bulge on Bibby's short jumper. Sacramento took its largest lead at 104-62 on Damon Jones' basket with 7:52 remaining. "In a way, it was kind of funny. We have been on the other end of so many of these games," Nets forward Richard Jefferson said. "I wouldn't say we were due, but you have to give them credit. It was just one of those days."
