Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Faced with an ever-diminishing number of teammates, Peja Stojakovic and Mike Bibby did all they could Tuesday to get their team a win. Stojakovic scored 27 points and Bibby added 18 and seven assists as the undermanned Sacramento Kings posted a 109-100 victory over the Denver Nuggets. The triumph was the Kings' 17th straight at home against the Nuggets and made them winners in their first game since shipping Doug Christie to the Orlando Magic on Monday in exchange for Cuttino Mobley and Michael Bradley. "I really thought it was a terrific win," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Kevin (Martin) and Maurice (Evans) were terrific tonight and everybody who played gave us a lift. It was just a great win." While star forward Chris Webber sat out to rest his sore left knee, Mobley and Bradley had yet to arrive in town, leaving the Kings with just nine players in uniform. "I'm proud of our effort because we stuck with it," said Evans, who scored 14 points in his first start since November 2. "Even with (Webber) out and with Doug and all the things that are going on we were able to pull out a victory. In that sense, I think we got everything we wanted done." Stojakovic stepped up, scoring 10 points in the first quarter and nine in the closing minutes. His 3-pointer with 6:24 left snapped an 89-89 tie and gave Sacramento the lead for good. "When you look at our team in warmups, there were only nine guys," said Stojakovic, who has 64 points in his last two games. "But we played as a team. A lot of guys stepped up. All nine guys stepped up tonight. It was a great effort." Bibby left the game with 9:40 remaining after turning his ankle following a driving layup, and Denver quickly took advantage with a 9-0 run that tied the game, 85-85. A hobbled Bibby returned at the 7:54 mark, just before Stojakovic put the Kings ahead to stay. Afterward, Bibby indicated he would be ready for Thursday's home game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Sacramento clinched the game with free throws in the final minutes as Denver missed several point-blank opportunities against a zone defense, which had stalled the Nuggets much of the first half. "We were missing shots we normally make," Denver forward Carmelo Anthony said. "The last couple of games we've been missing. Especially me. I know I was missing shots I normally make. Only thing I can do is keep going at it." The Kings got good production from some of their newer faces. Martin, a rookie, scored a personal-best 17 points in just 18 minutes, including 9-for-11 from the free throw line. Starting in place of Webber, Darius Songaila scored 12 and had eight rebounds. Kenyon Martin scored 17 points and Anthony struggled to post 16 for the Nuggets, who lost their fifth straight since winning interim coach Michael Cooper's debut December 31. "It's been the same story all month," Martin said. "However many games we've lost, guys got to get tired of it. Get fed up. I've been fed up." Since returning from a sprained ankle December 31, Anthony is averaging 20.5 points but shooting just 32 percent (37-of-116). "I'm fine physically," Anthony said. "All I can do is keep shooting. A slump is a slump. I've been in a slump before and got out of it." "We should have beaten them," Cooper said after his team lost its ninth straight game to a Western Conference opponent. "They didn't beat us, we beat ourselves. Turning the ball over, not boxing out, and all the other little things."
