Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Vlade Divac scored seven of his 24 points in a crucial burst to close the contest as the Sacramento Kings survived with a 98-86 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Washington's Juwan Howard scored and was fouled with 4:13 to play and had a chance to pull his team within a point. But he missed the foul shot and the Kings began their 13-3 run.

Divac drained a pair of free throws and after former King Mitch Richmond went 1-of-2 from the line, Divac converted a three-point play to give the Kings their biggest lead at 90-84 with 3:01 left.

The Wizards got a right-wing jumper from Chris Whitney with 2:45 to play but did not score again. Tony Delk added four points during the Kings' run while Divac and Chris Webber added two apiece to account for the final margin.

"We made good execution on plays down the stretch and it was important to get the ball down to our big players," Delk said.

Richmond looked as though his return to Arco Arena since being traded for Webber in May 1998 was going to be a memorable one. He torched Sacramento for 20 points in the opening quarter on 9-of-13 shooting as Washington jumped to a 32-23 lead.

But he went cold thereafter, making only two of his next 16 shots. He finished with 26 points as the Wizards failed in a bid to win their season-high fourth straight game.

"I know the fans really deserve it, they've been here a long time," Richmond said, referring to the ovation he received at the beginning of the contest. "I felt the reaction was great, you never know how it's going to work out until it happens. But the people always treated me well here. The fans always came out every night."

After posting a triple-double against his former team on December 4, Webber followed with a double-double, scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

"It seemed like both teams really struggled," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "I think we played solid defensively and that's what won the game for us. (Richmond) really got things going for them, but other than that stretch he had, it was like both teams played the same. I'm just glad we got the win."

With the victory, Sacramento moved percentage points ahead of Seattle for seventh place in the Western Conference, one game behind sixth-place Minnesota.

The Wizards managed to make only 38 percent of their shots from the field (38-of-99) and were outrebounded by a 54-42 margin.

"(The Kings) turned it up and we had a chance to make some shots," Washington coach Darrell Walker said. "We shot 38 percent and put up 99 shots and we don't win the basketball game. Other than that, I thought it was a fantastic effort by our team. We just didn't pull it out, we didn't make any shots."

Things went downhill for Washington in the second quarter, especially when guard Rod Strickland strained his left quad and did not return.

Trailing by nine points with 10:26 remaining, the Kings chipped away and took their first lead of the quarter at 44-43 on Divac's layup with 4:01 left.

Not to be outdone, the Wizards bounced back in the third quarter and used a 10-0 run to go ahead 68-59 midway through the period, capped by a tip-in from Jahidi White.

Once again, the Kings narrowed the deficit and took the lead for good in the fourth quarter when Webber missed a three-pointer, but Delk was there for the tip-in, giving them a 79-78 lead with 7:25 remaining.

Delk finished with 12 points and Predrag Stojakovic added 11 off the bench for the Kings, who have won six in a row at home.
