Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- The FleetCenter certainly does not have the mystique of the Boston Garden. The Sacramento Kings became the latest team to illustrate that.

The Kings won for just the second time in 15 games in Boston and as Chris Webber had 30 points and 13 rebounds and Doug Christie scored 19 points in a 104-81 rout.

Webber posted a double-double for the fourth time in five games as Sacramento improved to 1-2 on its four-game road trip and evened its record away from home to 5-5. The Kings had lost 19 of their last 20 games in Boston, which includes five defeats when the franchise was located in Kansas City.

"What I like about tonight is we had a team down and didn't let up," Webber said. "We've been letting some teams back into games, but not tonight. I had some good looks under the basket and knocked down some open shots. Those two together make for a pretty good evening."

Vlade Divac had 15 points and nine rebounds and rookie Hidayet Turkoglu tallied 10 and six as the Kings avoided losing three straight games for the first time since the end of last season. Point guard Jason Williams was the only Sacramento starter not in double figures. He had eight points and seven assists.

Sacramento had 21 assists against just eight turnovers. The Kings scored 21 points off 17 turnovers by the Celtics.

"I thought we got out of the break a couple of times tonight converting some of their turnoves into easy baskets," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "Anytime you do that it's going to help you win, especially when you do it on the road. This brings us back to .500 on the road. That's a good point to be, but it's something we want to improve upon."

Antoine Walker had 15 points and 11 rebounds and reserve Vitaly Potapenko added 12 and 12 for Boston, which completed a 1-3 homestand and fell to 8-7 in the FleetCenter.

The Celtics, who were coming off a humiliating 104-86 loss to the lowly Chicago Bulls, shot just 38.5 percent (35-of-91).

Paul Pierce collected 14 points and nine rebounds but made just 5-of-18 shots. Pierce, who is averaging a team-high 22.7 points per game, shot just 20 percent (5-of-25) in Boston's last two losses.

"Sometimes you go through things like this where the shots (are) not falling," Pierce said. "I'm not worried about my confidence, we're out of sync right now. These last two games haven't been pretty."

"We're obviously not playing very well right now," Boston coach Rick Pitino said. "What really hurt us tonight I think were our 11 first-half turnovers, they only had two. Usually when we perform well we have 11 or 12 turnovers in a game. That really worked against us tonight."

Despite hitting just 9-of-24 shots, Boston trailed just 23-21 after the first quarter.

Sacramento missed eight straight shots in the second quarter, including seven from inside the paint, before Webber had a layup for a 37-34 lead with 4:52 left.

Christie, who made just 6-of-17 shots, hit a 21-footer put the Kings ahead, 43-41, just under three minutes before halftime. Webber and Divac each followed with a pair of free throws and Divac had a layup to stretch the lead to 49-41 with 52 seconds to go.

Every Kings starter scored in an 11-3 burst that ended the third quarter and opened a 79-61 lead.
