Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- David Robinson doesn't have any of the flash of Jason Williams. But he does have an NBA championship ring.

Robinson scored six of his 26 points in overtime and the San Antonio Spurs took advantage of some sloppiness by Williams in a 98-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

The Spurs completed a sweep of their three-game road trip as they continued their push for home-court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. They also avoided a series sweep at the hands of the brash Kings, who had won the first three meetings of the season.

Robinson, who missed a free throw with 15 seconds remaining in regulation, scored on three straight possessions of overtime, extending a two-point lead to 94-88 with 35 seconds to go.

After Robinson went 1-of-2 from the line with 15 seconds left in the fourth quarter to forge an 84-84 tie, Williams drove beneath the basket and threw away a pass with 5.8 seconds left. He had a turnover after Robinson's first basket of overtime and threw a senseless lob pass that was broken up in the waning seconds.

"It's great for us in a lot of ways," Robinson said. "For one, this team had our number all year, so we had to come back and get this game. And two, to be able to come back from a big deficit on the road in a tough situation, that's some of the characteristics we're showing, we're starting to believe in ourselves again and playing better basketball."

Tim Duncan shook off a knee injury to collect 18 points and 13 rebounds for the Spurs (50-28), who reached 50 wins for the seventh time in 11 years and are virtually tied with Phoenix (49-27) for fourth place in the West.

"It still hurts a little bit," Duncan said. "I'm having a little problem with my knee but I just went back in there, pushed on it and it started feeling better."

"We explained to him that he has 12-14 years left on his career and it's no time to be a hero," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "But he said, `No, I can go, it's getting loose,' so we'll find out tomorrow if he was fibbing to us or not."

Williams and Vlade Divac scored 17 points each and Chris Webber and Nick Anderson added 16 apiece for the Kings (43-34), who blew a 17-point first-quarter lead in their third straight loss and lead Seattle by one game in the race for seventh place in the West.

"The last three games have all been against teams that are ahead of us," Divac said. "We played good games but we just couldn't finish."

Williams had nine assists but also committed eight turnovers. Webber and Divac fouled out late in regulation, leaving the Kings without their top two offensive options in overtime.

"Without Vlade and Chris down there it is tough but we still had our chances," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "They did more things than we did down the stretch."

The teams went nearly the first two minutes of overtime without scoring until Williams hit a jumper with 3:10 to go. Terry Porter answered for San Antonio and Duncan scored to give the Spurs the lead for good before Robinson took over.

Williams hit a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 95-92 with 13 seconds left. Porter made a free throw and Williams raced downcourt and threw a sloppy lob that Avery Johnson turned into a breakaway layup that sealed it.

Sean Elliott scored a season-high 13 points and Porter, Johnson and Samaki Walker had 10 apiece for the Spurs, who shot 39 percent (36-of-93) fom the field and held a 23-12 edge at the foul line.

Predrag Stojakovic had 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench and Webber pulled down 12 boards for the Kings, who shot 45 percent (37-of-83) and committed 21 turnovers.

A jumper by Elliott that beat the shot clock gave the Spurs a 77-74 lead with 8:05 left in the fourth quarter but that was their last basket for more than 10 minutes. Webber fouled out as Elliott's free throw made it 83-80 with 1:17 left, but Divac made a hook and Stojakovic hit a runner in the lane to give the Kings an 84-83 lead with 28 seconds to go.

Robinson fouled out Divac on a questionable call but split a pair from the line, setting up Williams' turnover. Johnson had an open corner jumper at the buzzer, but missed it.

"We just turned it over," Adelman said. "Jason got caught in the air. We tried to run a pick-and-roll and space them out a bit but we got caught in the air."
