Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers improved to 2-0 with assistant coach Jim Todd at the helm with a 97-91 victory over the slumping Sacramento Kings.

Troy Hudson had 16 points and 10 assists and Maurice Taylor came off the bench to add 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who were without coach Chris Ford for the second straight night due to back spasms.

Ford has been replaced by Todd, who had not coached a game since 1996 at tiny Salem State before Wednesday's 103-99 victory over Golden State.

"We just played with a lot of energy," Todd said. "It's been an unbelievable 48 hours. It was a total team win. Everybody has chipped in and weathered the storm."

Rookie Lamar Odom contributed 13 points for Los Angeles before picking up his second technical foul in the fourth quarter. The Clippers have won four of their last six since a nine-game losing streak and have taken the last three meetings with the Kings.

Chris Webber scored 33 points on 15-of-27 shooting for Sacramento after missing two games with a strained neck.

Corliss Williamson collected 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings, who have dropped four of their last five games and six of eight.

"We just didn't play well enough to win on the road," said Sacramento coach Rick Adelman, whose team has won just once in its last six games away from home.

In a game that featured seven lead changes and 15 ties, the Clippers made the last big run. They held a 51-45 advantage going into the third before Sacramento began the quarter with a 17-4 burst as Webber scored six points and Jason Williams had seven.

"We never quit, and that's good. But when we have a lead, we play not to lose, and that's bad," Williams said.

Los Angeles forged a 63-63 tie with 4:49 left with an 8-1 spurt. The Clippers went ahead by three points twice before Webber tied the game on both occassions, the last on a driving layup with 2:16 that made it 70-70.

However, the Clippers outscored the Kings, 8-4, to close out the quarter with a four-point lead.

In the fourth, Sacramento closed within 84-82 on Webber's jumper with 6:22 remaining but Los Angeles responded with consecutive baskets by Taylor and Tyrone Nesby to push its advantage to six points. The Kings would not get closer than four points thereafter.

Nesby collected 13 points while Eric Piatkowski and Charles Jones chipped in 12 apiece for the Clippers, who have won three in a row at home.

Williams finished with 15 points, seven assists, and six rebounds and Vlade Divac had 11 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Kings. Sacramento made just 16-of-33 from the free-throw line and their reserves were outscored 37-12.

"I didn't realize we missed that many," Adelman said. "This is the first time that I can remember. That's what was so frustrating."
