Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Rookie Jason Williams atoned for an awful effort during regulation with an impressive display in overtime as the Sacramento Kings overcame the absence of Chris Webber and knocked off the San Antonio Spurs, 104-100.

Without their best player, the Kings cooled off the league's hottest team. San Antonio, which suffered only its fifth loss in 31 games, had a seven-game winning streak snapped and missed a chance to move within a half-game of Utah for the NBA's best record.

Williams scored the first points in overtime, nailing a 3-pointer that put the Kings in front, 95-92, with 3:14 to go. David Robinson answered with a 13-footer off a feed by Avery Johnson, but Williams came right back with a runner in the lane that made it 97-94 with 2:39 left.

Another nice feed by Johnson, who had 12 assists, led to a layup by Sean Elliott that again cut it to one. Williams provided another crushing blow to the Spurs' comeback hopes, spinning away from Johnson and draining a fallaway baseline jumper for a 99-96 advantage.

"Our big men were great tonight, but Jason took us home in the end," Webber said. "I love his game; I love that kid."

Williams scored half of his 14 points in the extra session after connecting on just 2-of-14 from the field and committing five turnovers during regulation. The former University of Florida standout also contributed seven assists.

"I just keep playing my game throughout the game, whether my shots are falling or not," Williams said. "Even late in the game, I still want to shoot `em."

Jon Barry helped seal the win after Williams' jumper, stripping Elliott and feeding former Spur Vernon Maxwell for a layup. Barry added two free throws with 10 seconds left and Maxwell's foul shot sealed the victory with 5.5 seconds to go.

Vlade Divac collected 27 points and 15 rebounds for the Kings, who remained a half-game ahead of Seattle for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Seattle defeated Utah earlier.

Divac made up for the void left by Webber, who missed his second straight contest with a lower back sprain. Sacramento's top scorer and rebounder, Webber also is questionable for Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I had to do extra work and find a way to help the team without Chris being here," Divac said. "We need to, as a team, understand that with Webber missing, someone has to step up. Jon (Barry) and Max (Maxwell) have, and now me."

Tim Duncan had 32 points and 19 rebounds and Robinson added 17 and 15 for the Spurs, who had won the last six meetings in the series.

"This is the NBA, you can't come into anybody's arena and expect them to give (away) a game," Robinson said. "For us, when we lose now, it's pretty much a self-inflicted wound. We've just got to regroup and bounce back."

With the Spurs trailing 92-88 and less than a minute left in regulation, Duncan followed a miss by Elliott to make it a two-point game. Robinson stripped Divac before sprinting to the other end for a layup that tied it with 14.1 seconds to go.

After Elliott double-teamed Divac and forced a turnover with 1.9 seconds left, Duncan had a chance to win it in regulation. The MVP candidate ended up with an open look from six feet on the right baseline, but his shot bounced in and out as time expired.

"We came out kind of flat in the beginning and got back into it," Duncan said. "We kept fighting throughout and that gave us an opportunity to get back into it and we had opportunity after opportunity, but we just didn't make it happen."

Despite pushing the game to overtime, San Antonio never led after Scot Pollard hit a tip-in with 10:08 left in the second quarter that gave Sacramento a 26-25 edge. Pollard started in place of Webber, contributing nine points and eight rebounds.

Later in the period, Divac buried a 19-footer that gave the Kings their largest lead, 48-38. Sacramento went on to a 50-45 halftime lead behind 18 points from Divac.

A 14-footer by Johnson, who scored 15 points, pulled the Spurs even, 55-55, early in the third. But the Kings quickly bounced back and took a 79-73 lead into the fourth quarter.

Duncan scored eight points in the fourth to help San Antonio tie it, but missed a pair of free throws early in overtime and did not score in the extra session. The Spurs hit a mediocre 17-of-33 from the foul line, while the Kings were 24-of-33.

"Obviously, free throws killed us. That tells the tale, if you're going to be in a tight game," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "As frustrating as it was, Sacramento played harder than we did. They wanted this game badly and I thought they deserved to win tonight."

Maxwell scored 16 points and Barry added 10 for Sacramento, which won for the sixth time in seven games despite hitting just 6-of-25 3-pointers. San Antonio was even worse from beyond the arc, making only 1-of-13.

"I thought this was really a gutty win by our team," said Kings coach Rick Adelman. "Now we have a chance, if we just chip away, to control our own destiny. That's all we can do is just keep on winning."
