Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Kenyon Martin has been the NBA's best rookie this season. Chris Webber showed him how far he has to go to become one of the NBA's best players.

Webber taught Martin a lesson, collecting 33 points and 12 rebounds and leading the Sacramento Kings to a 95-79 victory over the New Jersey Nets.

The power forward matchup was one of top overall draft picks. The Nets tabbed Martin with the first pick in June and he has been solid, averaging 11.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.

But he presented no challenge to Webber, the 1993 top pick who has been one of the most valuable players in the league this season. From the opening tip, Webber displayed his dominance and the difference between a promising rookie and a veteran All-Star.

"To me, he shoots it the best (of the power forwards)," Martin said. "I don't know how many layups he shot, but 95-99 percent of his shots were jumpers and he hit all of them. He can shoot the ball pretty well for a big man."

On the first possession of the game, Webber blocked Martin's shot. He had a dunk less than a minute later and overpowered Martin and Aaron Williams for 12 points in the opening quarter as Sacramento raced to a 31-15 lead.

"I've got a lot of people here, a lot of friends and family, so you want to prove them right and do your thing," Webber said. "So I just wanted to come out and play a good game and I was prepared tonight."

"I knew he was ready to play," Kings coach Rick Adelman added. "There was no doubt in the locker room and the way he started the game off that he was ready to go."

The Kings never trailed and the Nets threatened just once as they got within seven points late in the third period.

Webber responded with a jumper to close the quarter and give the Kings a 76-67 lead. His free throw triggered a 7-0 spurt that opened the final period and extended the advantage to 16 points with 8:27 remaining.

Martin had just five points on 2-of-10 shooting and pulled down three rebounds in 34 minutes. He did make six steals.

Webber made 13-of-23 shots as he led Sacramento in scoring for 10th straight game. Doug Christie scored 18 points for the Kings, who completed a 2-2 road trip.

"`C-Webb' is off the hook," Christie said. "I haven't played with a player that is that dominant. He can put you on his back and carry you. I love him because he means so much. Offensively he scores and defensively he blocks shots. He rebounds at both ends of the court and he passes the ball also. He's not a selfish player. When you put all that together, that's what makes great players and he's definately one of them."

"(Webber's) one of the best players in this league and he makes me a really good coach," Adelman said. "I think he's improved. He's mixing up better going outside and inside, but we still have a long way to go in terms of working off him."

Stephon Marbury had 17 points and eight assists but made just 7-of-21 shots for the Nets, who have lost 11 of their last 14 games.

After the game, Nets coach Byron Scott received warm embraces from several members of the Kings. Scott was an assistant to Adelman for two years before taking the Nets' job.

Following his big first quarter, Webber opened the second period with a reverse layup. New Jersey cut the deficit to 35-24 and Webber responded with a jumper and a reverse dunk.

"He played a great game tonight," Williams said. "He was knocking down all his jump shots."

Sacramento built a 23-point advantage before settling for a 59-42 lead at halftime. Marbury scored 11 points in the third quarter as the Nets rallied.

A tip-in by Christie and baskets by reserves Jon Barry and Bobby Jackson gave Sacramento an 83-67 lead. Any chance New Jersey had of getting back in the game ended when it did not score from the field until Williams put one in with 5:49 to go.

Webber put his signature on the game with a long jumper that made it 90-72 just over a minute later.

"I've seen him score a lot then slow down, but he didn't slow down tonight," Nets swingman Kendall Gill said. "That's why he's one of the best power forwards in the league. He can shoot the jumper. He can do everything."

Vlade Divac contributed 12 points for Sacramento, which shot 49 percent (36-of-73) and held a 47-39 rebounding edge.

Williams had 13 points and eight boards for New Jersey, which shot 35 percent (28-of-80), including 2-of-12 from the arc.
