Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- There are many similarities between the Sacramento Kings and Milwaukee Bucks. One big difference is the Kings' ability to win on the road. Peja Stojakovic scored 31 points and teamed with Vlade Divac to make big plays down the stretch as the Kings outgunned the Bucks, 124-117, for their sixth win in seven games. The Bucks don't fit the mold of a typical Eastern Conference team. Like the Kings, they play at a heightened pace and shoot plenty of 3-pointers. Part of that comes from their personnel and part of it comes from coach Terry Porter, who last season served as an assistant under Kings coach Rick Adelman. "They're a high-scoring team," Stojakovic said. "Going against an Eastern team and seeing 120 points was amazing." "It was strange. The teams are very similar," Divac said. "They're running our plays and we're running their plays. You'd think you'd be able to stop them, but it was a shootout." Also like Sacramento, Milwaukee has established some dominance at home, winning five straight games at the Bradley Center to run its home mark to 21-5, the best in the East. But the Kings have shown this season that they are pretty tough on the road, too. Sacramento closed the gamne with a 10-2 run in the final minute. Divac, who had 14 points and 11 assists, sank a jumper that gave the Kings the lead for good at 116-115 with 42 seconds left before Stojakovic made four free throws and Brad Miller added four as Sacramento collected its fourth straight road win. "Winning here was about focus and matching their energy," said Stojakovic, who made 9-of-18 shots. "They're an energy team and they made their run in the second quarter. We came back in the third and fourth and were abkle to come up big when we needed to." Mike Bibby had 24 points and 11 assists, Miller scored 21 points and Doug Christie added 13 and nine assists for the Kings, who shot a blistering 58 percent (45-of-78) and had an astounding 39 assists. "It's amazing the way the other team shot and passed the ball," Porter said. "You can see why they have probably the best passing and shooting team in the league." Reserves Toni Kukoc and Desmond Mason scored 21 points each and All-Star Michael Redd added 20 for the Bucks, who shot 53 percent (47-of-88) after a slow start. Bibby scored 10 points in the first quarter as Sacramento built a 37-24 lead. But Kukoc was 7-of-7 for 18 points in the second period as Milwaukee closed to 65-62 at halftime. "They shoot the ball so well, especially when they get in a transition game a little bit, get a little energy and before you know it, everything is falling," Divac said. The Bucks inched ahead in the third quarter before the Kings took a 91-88 lead into the final period, which had five ties and six lead changes. Former King Damon Jones made a layup and shot a look at Sacramento's bench before Joe Smith's two free throws gave Milwaukee a 113-111 lead with 2:07 to go. Bibby responded with a 3-pointer before Redd's drive gave the Bucks their last lead with 1:02 left. After Divac's basket, Redd missed a 3-pointer and Stojakovic rebounded and was fouled, sinking both for a 118-115 lead with 20 seconds to play. After a dunk by Redd and two more free throws by Stojakovic, the Bucks had a chance to tie, but Mason forced a 3-pointer that clanged out of bounds. Miller sealed it with two from the line. "Those guys execute their plays so well, they shoot extremely well," Jones said. "Everyone was making shots tonight. Those guys did a fantastic job. ... "They're definitely the best team in the league."
