Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings needed a win in a bad way and Mike Bibby made sure they got it. Bibby scored 25 points, including a 19-footer from the left wing with 1.2 seconds remaining that gave the Kings a 94-92 victory over the Indiana Pacers in a thrilling matchup of the NBA's best teams. The fourth quarter saw seven ties and five lead changes, with neither team leading by more than three points. Bibby and Peja Stojakovic scored six points apiece in that final period to keep the Kings - who had lost two in a row - within striking distance. Pacers All-Star forward Jermaine O'Neal scored seven of his 23 points in the final 4 1/2 minutes. His two free throws with 24 seconds left tied it, 92-92. But this was a game in which whoever had the ball last was going to win, and that was the Kings. "We knew we had the last shot, because they had no timeouts left," said Bibby, who made 9-of-16 shots. "It was designed for me. If I didn't have anything, I was supposed to make something happen. We were happy to come out of here with a win." "He made a great individual play," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "In that situation, he's one of the best shot-makers in the game. If you leave the game to chance against a great team like Sacramento, you're going to be in trouble." Sacramento (50-19) swept the season series from Indiana (50-18) for the second straight season and ended Indiana's nine-game winning streak against Western Conference teams. Carlisle was disappointed in the way his team played in the second half, particularly the third quarter. "That was a disappointing way to lose at home," he said. "Our energy just dropped in the third quarter, and that can't happen. This was a learning experience for us. We're going to have games like this in the playoffs." The Pacers played without All-Star forward Ron Artest, who served a one-game league suspension for a flagrant elbow on Portland's Derek Anderson. The bench rose to the occasion, getting 15 points in 16 minutes from Jonathan Bender and 11 in 11 from Austin Croshere. In the teams' first meeting, Artest was ejected and missed the second half. "We've gotten a break the whole year," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "He got thrown out in Sacramento and he didn't play tonight. ... It makes a huge difference. We haven't been playing well, so it feels good to win." The Kings never trailed after taking a 90-88 lead with 47 seconds left on a 3-pointer by Doug Christie, who had missed six straight shots. O'Neal answered with a lane jumper to tie it nine seconds later. Chris Webber and O'Neal traded a pair of free throws each, setting up Sacramento's last possession. "It's always disappointing when you lose," o'Neal said. "Wwhen you give a team like this an oppourtunity to make a shot at the end of the game, a team with so many weapons, they're going to hit the shot." Webber had 24 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists before fouling out for the Kings, who trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half but snapped a two-game slide. Stojakovic scored 17 points and former pacer Brad Miller had 12 and 13 rebounds. It looked like the Pacers were going to run away early, scoring 35 points in the first quarter and leading by as much as 17 points in the first half. But the Kings used an 18-6 run to take a 73-72 lead early in the final period.
