Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The All-Star break did a world of good for the Sacramento Kings. Peja Stojakovic collected 20 points and 10 rebounds and Doug Christie added 16 and a season-high 12 as the Kings blitzed the Washington Wizards, 99-80. Vlade Divac contributed 13 points and Keon Clark had 12 and nine rebounds for the Kings, who had lost six of eight entering the break, due largely to injuries to All-Star Chris Webber and energetic sixth man Bobby Jackson. "We lost a couple of games we were supposed to win (before the break), so we have to make up for that," said Divac, whose team opened a season-high seven-game homestand. "Tonight was a great way to start these next seven games." "With three or four days off, you never know how they're going to respond," added Kings coach Rick Adelman, who coached the Western Conference All-Stars on Sunday. "I was happy to get the win and we have six more games this homestand, and we need to try to build on it." Neither Webber nor Jackson was available for this contest, but it did not matter. Sacramento scored the final six points of the first quarter to take a 25-19 lead, extended its advantage to 50-39 at halftime and opened a 75-50 gap entering the fourth quarter. "Coach wanted to emphasize that we come out and play good defense, hard basketball, and let everything happen how it's going to happen," Christie said. "I don't think he was happy with the fourth quarter, but the first three were very good for us." The Kings, who grabbed a season-best 57 rebounds, shot 44 percent (42-of-95) and kept the Wizards under 30 percent (29-of-97). "We have to play defense and rebound the ball," Divac said. "We just have to keep calling the right plays. Our offense has never really been a problem. The next couple of weeks, we're going to use for practice." Sacramento has won eight of nine over Washington, including five in a row at home. Michael Jordan scored 12 points on 5-of-19 shooting for Washington before sitting out nearly the entire fourth quarter with the game out of hand. He managed only four points after the opening period. "I was just missing some open shots," Jordan said. "Sometimes when you take seven days off, the first thing you lose is your rhythm. Tonight, I had no rhythm. A lot of us looked like we didn't have any rhythm, missing layups and shots in and out." Larry Hughes paced the Wizards with 19 points but made just 5-of-15 shots. Leading scorer Jerry Stackhouse sat out his third straight game with a pulled left groin. With the victory, the Pacific Division leaders improved to 8-0 at home against Eastern Conference opponents. Sacramento is 15-4 overall at Arco Arena. "The way they played tonight, they definitely have a chance (to win the NBA title)," Jordan said. "It's a matter of how well they play together, keeping everybody healthy. When you talk about winning big games, the continuity has to be right, the focus has to be 100 percent as one."
