Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings have found the secret to a perfect season -- play all their games on Tuesdays.

Nick Anderson scored 10 of his 19 points in the first quarter as the Kings used a barrage of 3-pointers to improved to 10-0 on Tuesdays with a 119-80 rout of the Chicago Bulls.

A Chicago native, Anderson hit 5-of-10 from behind the arc and was the catalyst during a frantic first quarter which saw Sacramento hit 15-of-23 shots and jump out to a 35-25 lead. The Kings connected on 12-of-33 3-pointers in the contest.

Anderson's night was cut short with 3:52 left in the third quarter when he injured his left knee chasing a loose ball into the courtside seats. But it hardly mattered as the Kings never trailed in posting their most lopsided win of the season in their first game since completing a grueling eight-game road trip.

"I'm really pleased with our effort," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "After the trip we had, you come back with one day rest and you always worry about that first game back. We talked about it before the game and our guys came out and played through that with a solid effort all the way through. It was good to be back here with our fans."

Rookie Elton Brand was the lone bright spot for the Bulls, who suffered their worst lost of the season. He had 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting and added 10 rebounds as Chicago once again fell into the NBA's cellar, one-half game behind the Los Angeles Clippers.

"They are very difficult team to play against," Brand said. "They have so many offensive weapons, they're hard to stop. "We didn't play our defensive scheme tonight."

Sacramento which placed seven players in double figures, including all five starters. The Kings shot 51 percent (48-of-94) from the field, made all 11 free throws and had 16 steals as they improved to 18-3 at Arco Arena.

Anderson gave Sacramento its largest lead of the first half at 60-38 with a 3-pointer with 3:40 remaining. Brand scored seven points during a 9-0 run which saw Chicago close the gap to 60-47 in the final minute. Chris Webber scored the final basket of the period to give the Kings a 15-point advantage.

"Definitely we are pleased," Webber said. "Coach mentioned in the shootaround that we can't come out lackadasical in this game. Hopefully, we'll work on winning and getting ready for the playoffs. That is what the season is all about -- the playoffs."

Sacramento put away the game in the third quarter, making 6-of-8 from behind the arc and 14-of-23 overall in a 34-point barrage that extended the lead to 96-65. The Kings took their largest lead at 117-75 on a three-point play by Lawrence Funderburke with 3:01 to go.

Webber finished with 22 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, Vlade Divac had 16 points and 10 boards and Jason Williams added 13 and eight assists for the Kings, who committed only 11 turnovers.

Predrag Stojakovic started for the injured Corliss Williamson and scored 11 points for Sacramento, which moved into fourth place in the Western Conference, one-half game ahead of the Utah Jazz.

Toni Kukoc was the only other Bulls' player to reach double figures with 12 points. Chicago shot 43 percent (31-of-72) and allowed an astounding 32 points off 24 turnovers.

"We just never got it going offensively or defensively," said Bulls rookie Ron Artest, who scored only six points on 3-of-10 shooting. "It's pretty disappointing and shocking. This is probably our wost loss of the season."

"I think it started with the defensive transition, which was horrible, as bad as it's been since I've been here," frustrated Bulls coach Tim Floyd said. "If you get beat as badly as we did tonight, I think there is a competing factor that kicks in and for whatever reason, I'm not sure that was there."
