Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Just when you thought you have seen it all from the Los Angeles Clippers, they show you something new.

Despite a 23-point first-half lead, the woeful Clippers reverted to their typical form as the Sacramento Kings rallied for a 104-83 blowout victory.

The Kings could not have opened the game any worse and the Clippers seemed poised to take full advantage. Los Angeles scored the game's first 13 points and led 19-2 with 4:55 left.

The Clippers pushed the lead to 24-8 after 12 minutes, setting a franchise record for the lowest total allowed in the opening quarter. Sacramento shot a horrendous 3-of-20 in the period, including 0-of-7 from behind the arc.

Rookie Lamar Odom's layup gave Los Angeles a 36-13 lead with 8:31 remaiming in the second quarter and the Clippers still led 42-20 at the 5:25 mark. But the good fortune just ran out.

Sacramento awoke from its funk with a 21-3 burst to close the quarter and cut the deficit to 45-41 at halftime.

With the game tied at 68-68 entering the final period, the Kings put the finishing touches on their remarkable comeback with a 13-1 run, opening a commanding 81-69 lead with 7:46 remaining.

The shellshocked Clippers had no answer as Sacramento's lead continued to grow. The final margin represented the Kings' largest lead.

"I'll just talk about the second half -- I have no explanation for what we did in the firts half," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We came out like... I don't know. Obviously, we were so bad, it was embarrassing.

"When we got within four at the end of the first half, I still wasn't happy. "I told them that if we were going to play like that, we are going to be the eighth seed. I hope it teaches us a lesson. I can't repeat much of what I said to them when we were down 23. I couldn't believe the way we approached the game."

Clippers guard Derek Anderson looked to his team for answers while teammate Maurice Taylor had a more casual approach.

"I'm going to keep playing hard but I think some of our players need to do the same thing." Anderson said. "Big leads like this and a young team... You start to play lax. Possession by possession, every one counts. but some people don't realize that. You never take anything for granted or you get real soft and they take advantage of you."

"You just have to look at the basketball part," Los Angeles forward Maurice Taylor said. "I love playing basketball, that's why I'm here. It's my job. I don't look at the fans, etc."

The Clippers, losers of three in a row and eight of their last 10, fell to 14-53 on the season and are locked in a virtual tie with the Chicago Bulls for the NBA's worst record.

Sacramento, in eighth place in the Western Conference, has virtually locked up a playoff spot and trails seventh-place Minnesota by one-half game. The Kings are only one game behind Seattle for sixth place.

"It was embarrassing for us early but we did manage to score over 100 points and comeback to win," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "We approached this game the wrong way -- we didn't play like we're capable. We shouldn't do this coming down towards the playoffs. But those things happen."

Divac and Predrag Stojakovic scored 20 points apiece for the Kings, who won for only the second time in 10 road outings. Anderson scored 25 points and Eric Piatkowski grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds for the Clippers.

Chris Webber and Tony Delk added 12 points apiece for the Kings, who shot 46 percent (39-of-84), hit 21-of-27 free throws and committed 10 turnovers.

Lamar Odom had 18 points and nine rebounds before fouling out. The Clippers shot 44 percent (34-of-77) and held a 48-34 rebounding edge, but committed a whopping 27 turnovers.
