Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- They say that nothing worth having comes easy. Whoever came up with that saying must have had the 1999 Sacramento Kings in mind.

Vernon Maxwell came off the bench to score 13 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter as the Kings posted their fifth straight victory and climbed into sole possession of the final Western Conference playoff spot by holding off the Dallas Mavericks, 105-102.

The Kings (22-22), who climbed back to the .500 mark for the first time since being 9-9 in early March, had not won five in a row since December 19-28, 1996.

"Vernon was huge down the stretch, just huge," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "We've been looking to get to .500 for a long time and it's especially nice to be .500 in April."

Sacramento has been one of the most entertaining teams in the league this season, playing seven overtime games and several others that have come down to the wire.

Tonight was no different. Maxwell's jumper with 4:18 to play put the Kings ahead for good at 95-94 and his 3-pointer with 2:32 remaining made it 102-98.

"This is where I think my playoff experience helps out in a lot of these situations," said Maxwell, who was part of Houston's back-to-back championships in 1993-94. "This is the way the games are going to be. Everybody's fighting for respect and there are a lot of teams fighting for the playoffs."

Gary Trent, who had 32 points and 14 rebounds, pulled the Mavericks within two on a jumper with 2:03 left. Trent had a chance to tie the contest at the line with 1:27 to go, but misfired on both free throw attempts and was forced to foul Vlade Divac with 31 seconds remaining.

Divac made 1-of-2 at the stripe to push the lead to 103-100 but Michael Finley buried a 20-footer from the right sideline to cut the deficit to one with 16.7 seconds left.

Jon Barry hit two free throws with 14.3 seconds remaining before the Kings held on for dear life.

Hubert Davis missed an open 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds to go but Chris Anstey was able to gather the rebound and kick it out to Finley for another potential game-tying shot.

Finley, who scored 26 points, was unable to connect from 27 feet, giving the Kings a one-half game lead over idle Seattle in the hunt for the last postseason spot in the West.

"The last play was designed for me to come up, get the ball, hand it off to Michael for (a 3-pointer) and after that I was supposed to screen for Hubie (Davis) which I didn't do," said Trent. "It was another mental breakdown which cost us the game."

"We can't worry about what other teams are doing," added Maxwell. "But if we go out and take care of our games, everything should take care of itself. I'm just happy to contribute to help this team win."

Divac scored a season-high 28 points and Chris Webber added 17 despite missing most of the fourth quarter with back spasms.

"To be honest, I really don't know what happened," Webber said. "I've never had chronic back pains before. I just could not bend over and I didn't have any lateral movement. I felt very confident that we were going to win. I just felt very helpless not being able to help our team."

"This was really a gutty performance, especially when Chris went out," Adelman added. "Vlade was big and Jon Barry gave us some energy again. It was really a team win all the way through and I can't give enough credit to those guys. They stayed with it, kept battling and we made the plays we had to."

Davis scored 18 points and rookie Dirk Nowitzki added 12 for Dallas, which has dropped four straight at Arco Arena.

The Mavericks shot 48 percent (43-of-89) and held a 50-40 advantage on the boards.

Corliss Williamson collected 11 points for the Kings, who shot 49 percent (41-of-84) and forced 15 turnovers.

Divac, who was a sparkling 10-of-15 from the field, hit 6-of-7 shots in the first half to lead Sacramento to a 57-53 lead at the break.

The game, which featured 17 lead changes and five ties, seemed to swing in Dallas' direction early in the fourth quarter.

A.C. Green made a layup, Trent hit a free throw and Finley converted a three-point play that gave the Mavericks an 89-84 lead with 8:44 remaining.

But Trent, a 63 percent free throw shooter, was 6-of-14 from the line, including seven misses down the stretch that kept Sacramento in the game.

"People in here won't say it, coaches won't say it, but I'm going to say it, I cost us the game," Trent added. "I didn't run the (last) play right and then in the fourth quarter, I went to the line and missed seven free throws and that's why we lost."

Maxwell drained a 3-pointer with 6:20 left that capped an 8-2 run, giving the Kings a 92-91 lead and setting the stage for another exciting finish in Sacramento.
