GAME RECAP

Damon Stoudamire had one of his best games of the season in what could have been his last with the Toronto Raptors, hitting the winning jumper with 3.8 seconds to play in a 99-98 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Stoudamire came within one rebound of a triple-double, tying a career high with 36 points and handing out 11 assists. Numerous reports have the third-year guard, Toronto's leading scorer, going to the Houston Rockets as part of a six-player trade.

But Raptors general manager Glen Grunwald said at halftime that no deal involving Stoudamire will take place tonight. Stoudamire, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, is rumored to be headed to any of five unnamed teams.

"All I can do is play ball. I don't control nothing that goes on off the court," Stoudamire said. "I had a good day, no different than what it always is. Until you see me in another uniform running up the court with other players, I'll be right here. I refuse to talk about anything else because it is all speculation."

Stoudamire hit two free throws to tie the game, 97-97, with 31 seconds to go before Sacramento's Mitch Richmond, who scored 27 points, hit one of two from the line 18 seconds later off a controversial foul call on Doug Christie.

After Toronto called timeout, Stoudamire drove the lane, pulled up from eight feet and drilled the go-ahead jumper. Richmond had a final chance to win it but his 14-footer bounced off the rim as time expired.

"I had a good look and I thought it was in," Richmond said. "I knew he (Christie) was on me but I thought it was a bucket."

Stoudamire, who notched his fourth straight double-double, connected on 5-of-7 from three-point range and made all seven of his free throws while committing just one turnover.

"I don't got to prove my worth to nobody in this league," Stoudamire said. "If I do have to leave it is going to be hard because these guys are like my brothers.

"I've been miserable this year, I take losing very hard," he continued. "I'm a competitor, I've been a competitor all my life. Losing can become a habit if you let it. I didn't want this to be an excuse for me not playing my game."

Toronto is actually 3-3 since winning just four times in its first 34 games.

The Raptors' Marcus Camby grabbed a career-high 18 boards, matching the franchise record for a non-overtime game. He also contributed 15 points, five blocks and three steals as Toronto outrebounded the Kings, 53-43.

"I knew a big game was coming out of him (Stoudamire) tonight, just to prove all the critics wrong," Camby said. "He played a heck of a ballgame. I wish he could have gotten that one rebound for the triple-double."

Billy Owens broke out of his recent slump by registering 22 points and 12 rebounds but Sacramento still fell to 0-3 on its five-game eastern road trip. Owens had been averaging just 7.8 points and 5.8 boards over the previous four games.

Terry Dehere scored 15 points off the bench and sank two free throws with 2:55 to play, giving the Kings a 95-89 lead.

Toronto reeled off the next six points to tie the game with just over a minute to go. John Wallace and Christie drained back-to-back jumpers before Camby's dunk knotted the game at 95-95.

Dehere finally answered with a jumper from the top of the key with 47 seconds left, but Stoudamire responded by hitting the tying free throws just 16 seconds later.

Christie was whistled for a questionable reach-in call on a rebound, resulting in Richmond's go-ahead free throw, but Stoudamire made the play irrelevant when he hit the game-winner.

"We tried to take the ball out of his (Stoudamire) hands in the fourth quarter," Kings coach Eddie Jordan said. "When you double-team him, he finds other guys in the gaps."

Richmond, who has also been the subject of trade rumors throughout the season, grabbed seven rebounds and made 10-of-18 from the field.

"Do I want Damon Stoudamire to go, of course I don't," Raptors coach Darrell Walker said. "Does Eddie Jordan in that next locker room want Mitch Richmond to leave. Heck, you know he don't, but he has no control over that."

Christie contributed 15 points and Wallace added 14 for Toronto, which has won the last two meetings of this series after dropping the first three.
