Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Anyone looking for a sneak preview of the first-round playoff series between the Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz was extremely disappointed. Peja Stojakovic scored nine of his 11 points in the decisive third quarter as the Kings defeated the Jazz, 95-84, in the regular-season finale for these future playoff foes. The Kings and Jazz both knew before the game that they would be playing each other in the first round of the playoffs for the second straight year and third time in five years. "I don't know if that means much, we've played each other too many times," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, whose club went 1-3 against the Kings this season. "I doubt they're losing any sleep over playing us. We know they're a better team this year already." "There's no doubt in my mind they are much better than last year," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "(Karl) Malone and (John) Stockton never get old. You add (Matt) Harpring, he's a really good player. I think they are just much more of an all-around offensive team. They're the best shooting team in the league." Although they know each other's tendencies very well, neither team was in any hurry to overwork its key players or show any new wrinkles. Sacramento's starters all played between 25 and 28 minutes and Utah's starters played between 18 and 24 minutes. "Our objective was just to go out and play and not get rusty," said Harpring, who scored 15 points in 24 minutes. "We knew we weren't going to play the whole game and the Kings were doing the same thing. It was just a game to get warmed up for the playoffs." "This game really didn't mean anything for us," said Kings center Vlade Divac, who had six points in 25 minutes. "The real show is going to be on Saturday. We know each other really well. So we tried to rest players who played a lot of minutes." The Kings (59-23) won the Pacific Division for the second straight season and claimed the second seed in the Western Conference. The Jazz (47-35) finished seventh in the West. The Kings trailed, 45-37, at halftime but took control in the third quarter. They caught the Jazz at 56-56 on a layup by Divac with 4:33 remaining. A 3-pointer by Stojakovic gave Sacramento the lead for good at 61-60 with 3:42 to go and started a 12-2 surge that widened the advantage to 70-62 entering the final period. Two free throws by Tony Massenburg pulled the Jazz within 74-72 with 8:13 left. But Jimmy Jackson made a 3-pointer, Hedo Turkoglu sank a jumper and Utah never threatened thereafter. "Those guys came out and played awfully hard with the guys they had on the court," Kings guard Bobby Jackson said. "We know at the end of a playoff game, it's not gonna be the same guys out there at the end. We just know Karl Malone and John Stockton are gonna be in the game in the fourth quarter." Chris Webber scored 15 points and Mike Bibby added 14 for the Kings, who won their last seven home games to finish 35-6 at Arco Arena. Malone scored just eight points and Stockton was shut out. Andrei Kirilenko scored 15 points and Carlos Arroyo added 12 for the Jazz, who are headed to their 20th straight postseason. "We're gonna watch some tape tomorrow to try and learn what they like to do," Bibby said. "We just wanted to learn what they might try to do against us but also wanted to get the win. I don't worry about other teams really. I just worry about the Kings."
