Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- With Dennis Rodman missing in action, the Los Angeles Lakers looked lost in Sacramento.

Rookie Jason Williams scored 21 points and sank three big free throws down the stretch as the Sacramento Kings held on for a 105-101 victory that snapped a 10-game winning streak for the Lakers, who lost for the first time in the Kurt Rambis-Dennis Rodman era.

"(Rodman's) not being here had nothing to do with whether we won or lost tonight," Rambis said. "I don't feel he let us down, absolutely not. We allowed the Kings to get way too many opportunites. We lost because of my inexperience as a head coach. It's my fault. I wasn't able to get the team to do what I needed them to do."

With his team clinging to a 99-94 lead, Williams made a perfect no-look feed into the paint to Vlade Divac, who scored and was fouled. His three-point play with 1:56 remaining gave the Kings a six-point lead.

Williams made 1-of-2 at the line with 11 seconds left to make it 103-99. Shaquille O'Neal, who scored 33 points, responded with a layup with eight ticks remaining. But Williams drained a pair from the line with 4.2 seconds left to seal Sacramento's first win over Los Angeles in 10 tries.

"I love taking those shots," Wiliams said. "That's what makes the game so (much) fun. I just took my time. I wasn't nervous. I mean, if I miss it, I miss it but if I make it, it's all good."

Rodman, who helped the Lakers to a 9-0 mark since signing as a free agent, did not accompany the team for tonight's game and has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the club for undisclosed reasons.

"I didn't even realize he wasn't here and I could really care less," said Sacramento coach Rick Adelman. "This was the best game of the year for us. I was really proud of how the guys responded for a full 48 minutes. We got big contributions from a number of people. That's the type of effort we're going to have to get to beat the better teams at home and tonight was a good start."

Despite the loss, Rambis matched the best start by a rookie coach, equaling the nine straight wins Buddy Jeanette posted in 1947 when he began his tenure with the Baltimore Bullets. The first win after the firing of Del Harris came under assistant Bill Bertka.

Chris Webber posted his 20th double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Included in Sacramento's recent skid was an embarrassing loss to the then-winless Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.

"We hadn't played well recently and so I was glad that we came out tonight with an attitude that if it goes in, it goes in," said Webber. "But if not, then we're still gonna play hard. This was a big confidence builder but if we go to Golden State (tomorrow) and lose, then this is for nothing."

Kobe Bryant had 29 points and 10 rebounds for Los Angeles, which suffered its first defeat since a 93-83 setback at Vancouver on February 23. The Lakers fell one game shy of their 11-game winning streak at the start of last season.

Los Angeles was missing another significant member of its lineup, as point guard Derek Harper was scratched due to a sprained left ankle.

"Hopefully Derek will hurry up and get back," said Bryant, who took over the point when Derek Fisher went to the bench. "But in the meantime, I'm just going to do whatever needs to be done considering we're a little short at that position."

Travis Knight collected 15 points for the Lakers, who shot 46 percent (42-of-92) and forced 22 turnovers while committing 16.

Predrag Stojakovic matched his career high with 17 points off the bench for Sacramento as Kings reserves outscored the Lakers' backups, 34-17. Lawrence Funderburke added 10 points for the Kings, who shot 48 percent (36-of-75).

The Lakers' newest additions didn't do much to help the cause. Glen Rice, who made a sparkling Laker debut on Friday with 21 points, was 4-of-12 from the field for nine points in 29 minutes off the bench. J.R. Reid was held to four points in 18 minutes.

Tariq Abdul Wahad scored a season-high 15 points for Sacramento, including six during a 16-7 spurt that resulted in the Kings pulling ahead for good, 82-72, with 1:59 left in the third quarter.

Williams drained a 20-footer from the right sideline to give the Kings their biggest lead at 99-86 with 5:56 to go.

"We had to come out and play and simply do what the coach asks us to do," added Williams. "The sky is still the limit for us. We just need to keep our heads on straight and we'll be OK."

Bryant hit a technical free throw after an illegal defense call and O'Neal added a pair from the line before Bryant pulled the Lakers back in it with a 3-pointer and a 20-footer to close the gap to 99-94 with 3:43 left.

Both teams grabbed 43 rebounds.
