Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz avoided being embarrassed but failed to avoid overtime.

One game after being blown out by the league's worst team, the Jazz dropped their fourth straight overtime contest with a 104-101 loss to the upstart Sacramento Kings, who again played without Chris Webber.

Vernon Maxwell scored a season-high 33 points for the Kings, who also got a huge spark from Scot Pollard. The former University of Kansas standout, who had played just three minutes all year, had career highs of 11 points and 11 rebounds.

"I'm kind of like the old 'Field of Dreams' saying, 'If you play me, I will do good,'" Pollard said.

Pollard played 36 minutes to help fill the void left by Webber, the Kings' top scorer and rebounder who missed his second straight game due to a stomach virus.

Two free throws by Pollard tied the game, 101-101, with 1:10 to go. After a turnover by John Stockton, Vlade Divac sank the go-ahead foul shots with 45 seconds to play.

Once again, the Jazz's fortunes rested on Bryon Russell, who scored nine of his career-high 25 points in overtime of a 120-112 win over Sacramento on February 15. This time, Russell was called for a questionable offensive foul with 4.2 seconds left, nullifying his basket in the lane. In the waning moments, Russell threw away an inbounds pass that was intercepted by Michael Hawkins.

The Jazz suddenly are scrambling after owning the league's best record less than two weeks ago. They dropped a pair of overtime games before seemingly getting back on track with wins over Miami and Vancouver. But they were stunned by the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, 103-77.

"We're going through some tough times now, but we're a team that's always bounced back and worked through them," said Jazz All-Star Karl Malone. "We have them every year and this is tough times now for everybody because it's no fun losing. Some people accept it, and we don't here."

Malone scored 20 points to pace Utah, which appeared in control with an 89-82 lead with less than four minutes left in regulation. Sacramento answered with an 11-2 run and Utah needed two free throws by Adam Keefe to tie the game, 95-95, with 1:05 remaining.

Utah thought it had the victory in regulation. Stockton's jumper bounced off the front of the rim and Keefe gathered the loose ball in the lane. He quickly attempted a short hook that swished through at the buzzer, but replays clearly showed he released it after time expired.

Divac was 0-for-9 from the field, but hit all eight of his free throws and grabbed 13 rebounds. Rookie Predrag Stojakovic scored 17 of his season-high 26 points in the third quarter, helping Sacramento turn an eight-point halftime deficit into a 72-68 lead heading into the fourth period.

All of the Kings' double-figure scorers came from the bench. Without Webber, Sacramento's starting five managed just 21 points on a 5-of-30 shooting.

"We certainly miss Chris, but as long as he is out, we know we have to work that much harder and try to step it up to make this team win some games," Stojakovic said. "Tonight, the bench was able to carry the team."

Maxwell connected on 6-of-9 3-pointers, Stojakovic hit 5-of-8 and the Kings finished 15-of-30 from beyond the arc. Stojakovic had four 3-pointers and Maxwell added a pair in the third, when Sacramento set a team record with seven 3-pointers.

"They had some guys that got hot from the outside and really hurt us out there," Malone added. "Just because they didn't have Chris, they came out to play and you have to give them credit for that."

Malone's two free throws made it 89-82, but Hawkins responded with a 3-pointer and Maxwell had a fast-break dunk. Divac sank two foul shots to tie the game, 89-89, with 3:02 remaining. Keefe came back with a layup, but Maxwell buried a 3-pointer and Pollard sank a free throw to give the Kings a 93-91 advantage.

Jeff Hornacek had a 3-pointer and baseline jumper around a follow shot by Pollard to help Utah to a 101-99 lead midway through the extra session. A steal by Hornacek gave Utah a chance to pad the lead, but Stockton turned it over and Pollard hit two free throws after being fouled by Malone.

"I'm so used to being a cheerleader," Pollard said. "I've been one for 30 games this season and most of last year, so this is definitely different for me."

Another bad pass by Stockton, who committed five turnovers, led to Divac's two free throws. Hornacek blew his chance to put the Jazz in front with a missed 3-pointer, and Pollard pulled down the rebound. Stockton came up with a steal and fed Russell, who saw Pollard step in front to take the charge.

Maxwell sank a foul shot with 3.9 seconds left. Russell tried to hit Malone near mid-court but Hawkins picked off the errant pass.

Hawkins had season highs with 11 points and seven assists, seeing 33 minutes at point guard as rookie standout Jason Williams struggled to just three points on 1-of-8 shooting.

"To come in here with a team that had just lost three out of five and who happens to be one of the best in the league, you know they're going to be ready," said Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We talked about it before the game and I said it doesn't matter who's out there. If you can compete, good things will happen, and the second group competed."

Stockton had 14 points and 11 assists, Howard Eisley chipped in 14 points and Hornacek added 12. Utah shot 51 percent (42-of-82) from the floor but made just three 3-pointers and committed an uncharacteristic 26 turnovers.
