Game Story

INGLEWOOD, California (Ticker) -- After losing nine straight to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Sacramento Kings have now beaten them twice in a span of 13 days.

Chris Webber capped a brilliant night with a one-handed follow shot with four-tenths of a second left to lift the Kings to a 111-109 victory over the Lakers.

After former Laker Vlade Divac missed a shot from the right of the foul line, Webber leaped for the rebound, clutched the ball with his right hand and, while still in the air, put in a hook shot from eight feet.

"That was the first game-winning shot I've made," Webber said. "I just wanted to get my hand on it and force it towards the basket. I didn't see it go in though."

After the basket, Webber jumped up and down on the floor at the Great Western Forum and into the arms of teammate Vernon Maxwell near the Sacramento bench.

"That was a heck of a shot, I don't know how he got that in," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Ask him what kind of spin he used to get that thing in."

Derek Harper was unable to get off a shot before the buzzer sounded after the Lakers inbounded from mid-court.

J.R. Reid hit 1-of-2 free throws to give the Lakers a 109-106 lead with 35 seconds left, but Maxwell drilled a 3-pointer to tie the game with 29 seconds remaining.

"Vernon's big three, I think that was the catalyst for winning the game," Webber said. "He doesn't make that shot, we don't win. That was the play of the game."

The Lakers worked the ball around the perimeter effectively on their next possession, but Harper missed an open corner jumper with six seconds left and the Kings quickly called timeout to set up a last shot.

Webber soundly outplayed Dennis Rodman, finishing with 29 points on 14-of-22 shooting and 10 rebounds. In his first start of the year, Rodman played 24 minutes and had two points and nine boards.

"I am put into the starting rotation and I only played 24 minutes tonight," Rodman said. "But I can't say nothing about that. That is a coach's decision, so don't ask me about that."

Divac had 23 points and 10 rebounds and Corliss Williamson added 22 points for the Kings, who posted a 105-101 victory over the Lakers in Sacramento on March 12. That loss was the first for Lakers coach Kurt Rambis and snapped Los Angeles' 10-game winning streak.

This marks the first time the Lakers have lost consecutive games to Sacramento in over five years. They fell to the Kings at the Great Western Forum, 103-84, on February 10, 1994 and again at the Arco Arena, 102-90, two weeks later.

"Our rotation wasn't there, our help wasn't there," Rambis said.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 26 points and Shaquille O'Neal had 24 points on 11-of-15 shooting.

The Lakers built a 16-point halftime lead, but the Kings outscored Los Angeles, 40-23, in the third quarter. A layup by Williamson with four seconds left gave Sacramento an 86-85 lead.

O'Neal hit 1-of-2 free throws to tie the game at 96-96 with 4:55 left. Divac then converted four free throws to give Sacramento a 100-96 advantage.

After Glen Rice completed a three-point play to pull the Lakers within 100-99, Divac scored on a driving layup and Maxwell connected on a 3-pointer to open a 105-99 lead for the Kings with 2:43 left.

O'Neal hit a hook shot and Rice converted a 3-pointer with 1:52 left to pull the Lakers within 105-104. After Williamson made 1-of-2 free throws, Rice hit a 21-foot jumper to tie the game at 106-106 with 1:24 left.

Rice, who finished with 17 points, then converted a 16-foot jumper to give the Lakers a 108-106 lead with 58 seconds left.

"I was scared in the last couple of minutes, especially when Glen started hitting those shots," Divac said. "It was like uh-oh, what's this guy gonna do."

The Lakers shot 56 percent from the field in the first half and built a 62-46 lead.

A 20-4 run to close the first quarter opened a 30-20 lead for the Lakers. Rick Fox hit a pair of 3-pointers and Bryant converted two layups in the run.

Los Angeles then scored nine of the first 11 points in the second quarter to increase the lead to 39-22. The Lakers held their biggest lead of the half at 47-28 after a free throw by Harper with 6:26 left.

Jason Williams drove at will in the third quarter, dishing out eight of his 12 assists as the Kings hit 18-of-24 shots (75 percent). Williamson had 13 points in the third for the Kings.

"Coach got on us a little bit (at halftime) talking about how we need to be more aggressive," Williams said. "We let up too much on them in the beginning of the game and they got easy baskets. We just needed to come out and play aggressive."
