Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- The Houston Rockets gained some confidence after winning their last six games at the Compaq Center. The Sacramento Kings shook that feeling in a hurry.

Peja Stojakovic scored nine of his 15 points during the decisive first quarter as the Kings used a 3-point shooting barrage to snap the Rockets' home winning streak with an 88-81 victory.

Before the Rockets had a chance to break a sweat, Sacramento jumped to a commanding 20-3 lead midway through the period. The Kings knocked down five consecutive 3-pointers during one stretch to extend the advantage to 25-5 with 4:19 left.

Stojakovic started the long-range blitz, which included two 3-pointers apiece by guards Jason Williams and Doug Christie.

"We shot the threes well and moved the ball around," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "They came out and missed a lot of shots but we were hot. It's a really good road win for us."

The Kings led 28-13 after 12 minutes and after Houston pulled within seven points in the second quarter, Sacramento closed the session with a 19-7 surge that extended the lead to 52-35.

Sacramento led by as many as 21 points in the second half and maintained a double-digit lead until the game's final minute.

"It's kind of funny because the same thing happened last year when Houston got off to a (huge lead) but we came back and won the game by almost 20," Stojakovic said. "We approached the second half with the same intensity and knowledge of what could happen and we continued to play our game."

"We had a sloppy offense, committed way too many turnovers and we were just not reading situations," Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "We missed some good shots in the beginning and then it turned into a free-wheeling game for them. In the fourth quarter, we made it respectable but that doesn't tell the story."

The Kings have won eight of nine following a 2-2 start.

Cuttino Mobley scored 21 points for Houston, which lost for just the second time in seven games.

"In the first quarter, we came out and missed too many shots and it translated into too many easy baskets for them," said Rockets forward Maurice Taylor, who scored only four points on 2-of-9 shooting. "When we got down by 21, +ѝs when a little panic set in. When you've got five guys panicking, that's not good."

Matt Bullard nailed a 17-footer and Mobley followed with two buckets as the Rockets cut the deficit to 33-26 at 7:20 of the second quarter.

But Bobby Jackson and Lawrence Funderburke provided a spark off the bench with seven and six points, respectively, through the remainder of the period to help Sacramento to a 17-point cushion at the half.

The Kings pushed the lead to 21 points twice in the third quarter as Williams scored 10 points and Doug Christie added six in the session, and took a 74-56 cushion into the final period.

Chris Webber had 21 points and 11 rebounds and Williams contributed 18 for Sacramento, which shot 44 percent (37-of-84), nailed 7-of-15 from behind the arc and scored 26 points off 22 Houston turnovers.

"We just wanted to go out there and make a statement," Williams said. "I'm the type of player that will do anything it takes to win. When I'm up by 21 (points), I want to be up by 31 and when I'm up by 31, I want to be up by 41."

Steve Francis collected 13 points and Hakeem Olajuwon added 10 for Houston, which shot 39 percent (29-of-75) and held a 47-39 edge on the glass.
