Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings officially are playoff contenders while the Seattle SuperSonics continue to look like a shell of their former selves.

Vlade Divac finished with a triple-double and the Kings blew a 10-point fourth-quarter lead before recovering for an important 112-106 overtime victory over the SuperSonics.

Sacramento won for the second time in Seattle this season and remained within one game of Phoenix for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference. The Kings also pulled within 1 1/2 games of Seattle for the seventh spot.

The Kings have not made the playoffs since an opening-round loss to Seattle in 1996.

The Kings built a 96-86 advantage with 4 1/2 minutes remaining in regulation after rookie Predrag Stojakovic drained a 3-pointer. But the Sonics reeled off eight straight points, capped by Dale Ellis' shot from beyond the arc, to close to 96-94 with 2:23 left. Ellis scored 17 points and hit 5-of-9 shots from 3-point range.

Divac, who finished with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, made a layup to put the Sacramento up by four, but former King Olden Polynice answered with a lay-in of his own with 1:46 to go. Polynice had strong game with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

It was the fifth career triple-double for Divac and first since April 5, 1996 against Vancouver.

The Kings came up with a pair of empty possessions before Gary Payton, who finished with 21 points and 15 assists, converted a layup to tie the score with 43 seconds to play.

Each team had chances to win the game in the final seconds of regulation. Vernon Maxwell missed a 3-pointer for Kings with 24 seconds left and Payton and Ellis each missed shots for the Sonics in the waning seconds.

In the extra session, rookie Jelani McCoy made a layup to give the Sonics their last lead at 100-99 with 3:35 left. Stojakovic drilled a jumper with 2:47 to go, giving the Kings the lead for good at 101-100. Stojakovic led the Sacramento reserves with 16 points.

Tariq Abdul-Wahad, who scored 18 points, sank a pair of free throws to push the lead to three with 2:09 to play. McCoy had a dunk before Divac made a layup and Abdul-Wahid hit 1-of-2 free throws to push the lead to 106-102 with 40 seconds to go.

Abdul-Wahad made 8-of-12 shots from the floor as the Kings shot 54 percent (45-of-83).

The Sonics lost for the fourth time in their last five games and dropped under .500. It is the latest in a season they have been below break-even since they were 23-24 on February 3, 1992.

Seattle has won at least 50 games each of the last six seasons.

Abdul-Wahad scored 12 points and rookie Jason Williams tallied 11 of 21 in the opening half helping the Kings to a 55-50 advantage.

The Sonics started the second half by scoring the first nine points, capped by Hersey Hawkins' 15-foot jumper for a 59-55 lead.

A free throw by Payton gave the Sonics a 71-70 lead with 4:03 left in the third period. But fueled by eight points from Williams, the Kings used a 15-5 surge to close the period and open a nine-point lead. The dynamic rookie hit a pair of long 3-pointers in the burst and finished 5-of-9 from beyond the arc.

Chris Webber had another strong game for the Kings, scoring 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

Seattle's Detlef Schrempf recorded a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

The Sonics shot 44 percent (44-of-99).
