Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Corliss Williamson converted a three-point play with 7.5 seconds remaining as the Sacramento Kings posted a thrilling 101-98 victory over the Boston Celtics.

With the score knotted, 98-98, the Celtics had a chance to take the lead. But Ron Mercer missed a jumper that Vlade Divac rebounded. Divac unleashed a pass to Jon Barry, who hit Williamson with a pass just below the foul line. Williamson went into the lane and put in a floater as he was fouled by Antoine Walker to give the Kings the lead.

"Jon (Barry) did a good job of bringing the defense to him and I was trailing him," Williamson said. "I was able to get the shot off and get fouled and I made the free throw, so that was good."

Boston had one last chance to tie it, but Walker's 3-pointer as time expired bounced off the front rim.

"I had a good look at the basket with three seconds," commented Walker. "I'll take that shot everytime I could get it. I tried looking for Paul (Pierce) on the last shot but couldn't find him."

Williamson scored 22 points and Chris Webber recorded his sixth straight double-double with 22 and 15 rebounds for the Kings, who were coming off Monday's overtime loss at Utah.

"We realized that they were weak in the middle," Webber said. "That's why they press so much, to take that away from opponents. It was important for us to attack the middle and exploit their weakness."

Mercer netted 24 points and rookie Paul Pierce added 19 for Boston, which was playing its first game in a week. Walker finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds. The Celtics lost for just the second time in the last seven games between the teams.

Boston took its first lead of the fourth quarter at 92-91 with 3:52 left after Mercer hit a jumper. Divac, who finished two assists shy of a triple double, answered with a layup to give the Kings a one-point lead with 3:37 left. Divac had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

"It was a big game for us, especially after the disappointing loss to Utah," Divac said. "I figured I had to step in and make some baskets to take the pressure off my teammates. I tried to focus on defense tonight because of the Celtics up tempo offense."

Walker sank a jumper to give the Celtics the lead back and they went up 96-93 with 2:59 to go on Kenny Anderson's layup. But Williamson hit 1-of-2 free throws before making a layup to tie the score 56 seconds later.

Barry hit a bank shot to give the Kings a 98-96 lead with 70 seconds to play before Anderson nailed a jumper to draw the Celtics even 22 seconds later. Anderson finished with 12 points and eight assists.

The Kings led 39-38 with 3:55 left in the second quarter and closed the half strong. Webber, who hit 10-of-12 shots, sank a short jumper to fuel a 14-2 burst to close the half that put Sacramento ahead 53-40.

Sacramento still held a 64-52 advantage with 6 1/2 minutes left in the third following Webber's layup. But the Celtics used a 18-7 surge, capped by Bruce Bowen's 3-pointer to pull within 71-70 with 2:56 left in period. Walker scored nine points in the spurt.

The Kings shot 49 percent (41-of-84) while Boston finished at 42 percent (40-of-96). Sacramento also held a 50-43 rebounding edge.

"I think they're (the Kings) terrific," Boston coach Rick Pitino said. "I enjoy watching the Kings. They're a fun team to watch. They enjoy passing and cutting and are fundamentally sound. I love watching them on tape but hated watching them tonight."
