GAME RECAP

Mitch Richmond scored 14 of his 23 points in the first half as the Sacramento Kings outscored the Charlotte Hornets by 27 points in the first half and avenged one of their worst losses of the season with a 106-90 victory.

The Kings, who suffered their third-worst defeat and gave up their highest point total of the season in a 121-102 loss to the Hornets on December 2nd, won their third straight home game.

Charlotte's Dell Curry provided some blackboard material for the Kings after the first game when he made comments to the effect of the Kings being a bad team.

Curry, who was held to four points in the rematch, refused to comment after Charlotte's flat effort.

"I'm not going to say anything because I may (tick) some people off," he said. "Everything you (the media) write is right, right?"

"Him saying that, that kind of tests your pride," said Sacramento's Anthony Johnson. "Heck, we played bad that night. So he kind of had a right to say that."

Anthony Mason was more outspoken about the loss.

"We weren't working hard, not just in the game, but in practice," said Mason. "It carries over onto the court. We made a whole lot of jokes and took the team lightly. I didn't take them lightly, but evidently as a team we did. All teams are going to be hunting for us this year. It's not like last year when we snuck up on some people."

Richmond scored 11 points in the opening quarter as the Kings held a 33-18 edge after one period, and Olden Polynice scored 12 of his 18 points in the second period, when the bench took over.

Substitutes scored 24 of the 29 points in the second for the Kings, who led 62-35 at halftime. Terry Dehere added 10 points while Mark Henderson chipped in the remaining two.

The Hornets hit just 8-of-21 shots in the first quarter and made just five buckets in the second. Charlotte shot 39 percent (13-of-33) from the field over the first 24 minutes.

Hornets All-Star forward Glen Rice shot just 5-of-16 from the field and was held to 15 points. He was coming off a 42-point performance against the Heat on Friday.

"We don't take any team as a joke," said Rice. "They aren't a joke and we didn't overlook them. We tried to play both offensively and defensively, tonight it wasn't there."

Billy Owens had 16 points and rookie Tariq Abdul-Wahad 10 as the Kings had six players score in double figures.

Sacramento opened up with a 12-4 lead and never looked back. The Hornets cut the deficit to four points twice, the last time on Rice's 20-footer with 5:01 left. But Richmond scored seven points as the Kings closed out the first with a 17-6 burst.

"We really tried to deny them the basketball and tried to make them make some tough shots," Richmond said. "It was great not to see Dell Curry out there. When Dell is in there it makes it tougher to defend the team like that. And with Dell sitting down we just had to be more aware of Glen Rice."

The Hornets' 17 second-quarter points was an opponent's season low for the Kings, as was the 35 at halftime. Sacramento's advantage reached 30 points with 2:18 left in the quarter on Polynice's lay-in.

Rookie Michael Stewart had 10 rebounds, eight points and three blocks and Owens added nine boards as the Kings outrebounded Charlotte, 43-33. Polynice also had nine rebounds and hit on 9-of-14 shots for Sacramento, which shot a season-high 54 percent (44-of-81) from the field.

David Wesley had 17 points and Mason added 14 and 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who hit 47 percent of their shots in losing for the fourth time in their last five road games.

The Kings maintained their lead in the third quarter, going up by as many as 33 points when Bobby Hurley sank a basket to give them a 88-55 cushion with 41 seconds remaining.

Charlotte never did get untracked, get only as close as 15 points in the final quarter while falling 2 1/2 games behind the first-place Bulls in the Central Division.
