Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- With three starters out for the Phoenix Suns, Jason Kidd covered for them all with a triple-double.

Kidd collected 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists for his second straight triple-double and powered the Phoenix Suns to their third straight victory, a 119-103 triumph over the Sacramento Kings.

"Last night to go up and beat Portland and then to come home and lose wouldn't have left a good taste in our mouths," said Kidd, whose rebounds were a season high. "So this game was just as big as the Portland game."

"I guess Kidd had some more left from last night," Kings forward Corliss Williamson said. "He led his team."

The Suns were without forward Tom Gugliotta, who averages 14.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game but suffered a seizure after Friday's win in Portland; guard Penny Hardaway, who averages 16.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.5 assists but has plantar fasciatis; and 7-2 center Luc Longley, who averages 5.6 points and 4.3 rebounds and has back spasms.

Kidd picked up the slack with a superb all-around game as he notched his 28th career triple-double, tying Michael Jordan on the all-time list. He trails Detroit's Grant Hill by one for the lead among active players.

"Tonight's game says either one of two things," said guard Rex Chapman, who started for Hardaway and scored 16 points. "Either we have a really deep team that can kind of patch things up when four starters are out or you can put anybody out there with Jason Kidd. The guy's unbelievable."

The 6-4 guard missed a triple-double by one assist at Dallas a week ago and another by one rebound Wednesday against Detroit.

"Jason Kidd again was unreal," said Suns coach Scott Skiles, who won for the third time in as many games since replacing Danny Ainge as coach on Monday. "He's doing it all right now and he's really taking care of the ball."

Kidd got some help from Cliff Robinson, who scored a season-high 33 points. The Suns had first-half bursts of 12-0, 14-2 and 14-2 to open a 27-point halftime lead and held on against the pesky Kings, who are 4-7 since a 9-1 start.

"We came out in the first half and played well, then our energy level was a little down," Skiles said. "But we stuck through their run and won the game."

Jason Williams scored 22 points and Vlade Divac added 21 for Sacramento, which cut a 29-point third-quarter deficit to six without Chris Webber. The star forward suffered a strained neck late in the second quarter and did not return.

"It's the same trait that we've had," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We got impatient and kind of fed their break. We competed in the second half but it was just too far to come back."

Two free throws by Williamson gave Sacramento a 26-19 lead with 3:11 left in the first quarter before Phoenix scored the last 12 points of the period. Randy Livingston made two 3-pointers in a 14-2 burst that opened the second quarter and stretched the lead to 45-28 with 8:31 left.

A jumper by Divac made it 49-34 before Chapman scored 10 points in another 14-2 spurt that widened the margin to 63-36 with 1:56 left. Oliver Miller's layup opened the second half and gave the Suns their largest lead at 69-40 before the Kings awoke.

"We didn't come to play and they took it to us and got a big lead," Williamson said.

Williamson scored 12 points and Williams 10 in the third period and Sacramento roared back within 82-76 on a basket by Scot Pollard with 1:43 left. Kidd answered with a jumper, Rodney Rogers had a dunk and Chapman made a free throw to rebuild the lead to 87-76 with 39 seconds remaining in the period.

A basket by Tony Delk again moved Sacramento within six points early in the final quarter before Phoenix rattled off a 9-0 run. A three-point play by Chapman capped it at 96-81 with 8:54 left and the Kings got no closer than seven points thereafter.

"That was as gutsy a win as I've seen in a long time," Skiles said. "You could tell they were very, very tired. They sucked it up and got the big lead. In the third quarter we had a letdown but we knew Sacramento wasn't going to lay down and let us run away with it."

Rogers had 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Suns, who shot 45 percent (42-of-94) from the field and held a 58-52 rebounding advantage. Phoenix made 10-of-27 3-pointers.

Williamson scored 20 points and Nick Anderson added 10 for the Kings, who shot 41 percent (36-of-87) and made 8-of-18 from behind the arc. Webber grabbed 10 boards and Williams handed out eight assists.
