Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings weren't perfect in the fourth quarter. But they were very close. Sparked by Chris Webber, the Kings played a virtually flawless fourth quarter and pulled away for a 107-99 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in a reprise of the NBA's most heated rivalry. Webber overcame a sluggish start to collect 26 points and 11 rebounds as the Kings finished with a flourish and beat the three-time defending champion Lakers in another emotional, action-packed game. Sacramento squandered an early 15-point lead and trailed, 68-66, entering the final period, when it played practically perfect basketball. The Kings scored 41 points on 13-of-19 shooting, made all 12 of their free throws and did not commit a turnover. Webber scored 10 points in the fourth quarter, including a jumper that made it 97-90 with 2:27 remaining. After settling for jumpers early on, he went to the basket down the stretch. "Sometimes when your shot isn't falling, you don't want to force it," Webber said. "I felt I was rushing my jump hook. I just wanted to make sure other guys were involved and still take my shots." The big man got some help from Peja Stojakovic, who scored nine of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, and Mike Bibby, who had eight of his 19 in the final period. "We really stepped up big in the fourth quarter with Mike and Chris and Peja," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We made plays in the fourth quarter." "Those last six minutes, the Kings were unstoppable for us, especially Webber and Bibby," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. Sacramento needed its excellent fourth-quarter play because Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal kept the Lakers in it until the final minute. But the dynamic duo botched a couple of crucial plays and could not overcome the Kings. "They're tough, those two guys," Adelman said. "They're a real handful. We stayed with it. You have to stay with it in a game like this." Bryant had 34 points and 13 rebounds and O'Neal added 28 and 13 while surpassing 20,000 points for his career. But only one other Laker was in double figures. "They have to play perfect to beat us," O'Neal said. "They played a great game and we played a so-so game." The Lakers went 3-3 on their road trip. They dropped to seventh place in the Western Conference and would play the Kings in the opening round of the playoffs if the teams hold their current positions. That would be another fitting chapter in the ongoing feud between the teams. The Lakers have eliminated the Kings in each of the last three postseasons, with the Kings getting closer each time. "It seemed like it was such an emotional game for them," Jackson said. "I'm surprised they didn't self-destruct." This season began with a huge brawl in a preseason game. On Wednesday, O'Neal called out Bibby, labeling him a "Cub Scout" who does not deserve to be on the Olympic team ahead of Allen Iverson. "No point guard should be on the team before Allen Iverson - period, point blank, no questions asked," O'Neal huffed. And Sacramento's victory did nothing to deter Los Angeles' arrogance. "I have absolutely no fear of this team at all," Jackson said. "Did you look at their bench and their demeanor? They whined the whole game long. They are unhappy with the refereeing every time we play them. They are obviously carrying something inside. "That says something, that they have to have the referees to win the game or something. They have to have calls. I mean, maybe it is just their behavior on their home court, but that's not very good behavior for a team that wants to win a championship or thinks they are in a position to win a championship. " There were four ties and five lead changes in the fourth quarter. A dunk by O'Neal gave the Lakers their last lead at 90-89 with 4:13 remaining, but Webber answered with a pair of free throws that put the Kings ahead for good. Vlade Divac added a jumper and Stojakovic drilled a 20-footer in transition for a 95-90 lead with 2:57 to go. A pick-and-roll play saw Bryant's pass skip through O'Neal's hands for a turnover, and Webber made the Lakers pay with a jumper at the other end. "Our defense was terrible in the fourth quarter," Bryant said. "It was awful. We gave up entirely too many points." After a layup by Bryant, Bibby came off a screen and sank a jumper. Bryant split a pair of free throws with 1:45 to play, and the Lakers had a chance to get closer. But O'Neal couldn't handle a poor entry pass, and the Kings made 8-of-8 free throws in the final 70 seconds. "We made a couple of mental mistakes with about four minutes to go and it is just something that we have to work on and be consistent on," O'Neal said. "Our defense broke down," Lakers forward Robert Horry added. "We didn't get a lot of loose balls, they made a lot of easy shots, they got some run-outs." Divac scored 10 points and reserve Jimmy Jackson added nine for the Kings, who shot 46 percent (38-of-83) and made 25-of-30 free throws. "We took care of it at the end," Divac said. "In the last three to four minutes, we made shots, we made plays, we played defense." Derek Fisher scored 14 points for the Lakers, who shot just 38.5 percent (35-of-91) and held a 56-42 advantage on the boards. LA has outrebounded Sacramento in all three games this season. With O'Neal on the bench at the start of the fourth quarter, Bryant tried to carry the offense. Stojakovic and Jimmy Jackson shot the Kings to a 78-73 lead, but Bryant buried a 3-pointer and drew a foul from Jackson, who argued and was hit with a technical foul. The five-point possession tied it with 8:28 left. Webber had a pair of inside hoops as the teams traded ties over the next two minutes. A 3-pointer by Jimmy Jackson gave Sacramento an 87-84 lead, but rookie Kareem Rush put home an alley-oop pass and O'Neal made two free throws to give LA an 88-87 edge with 4:44 to go. "In the second half, it was going to be either a good half or a bad half (for me)," Webber said. "I just wanted to be able to take over." Fisher opened the game with a 3-pointer before the Kings rattled off 12 straight points. With Bryant missing eight of his first nine shots, Sacramento built a 37-22 lead on Jackson's three-point play with 7:02 left in the second period. The Lakers responded with a 12-0 run that helped them close to 45-42 at halftime. A 3-pointer by Rick Fox caught the Kings at 59-58 with 3:39 left in the third quarter.
