Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Tony Delk had the game of his life but Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic made sure their former teammate left Arco Arena with a loss.

Divac scored a career-high 34 points and Stojakovic matched a career-best with 33 as the Sacramento Kings overcame the early loss of Chris Webber and an NBA season-high 53 points by Delk in a thrilling 121-117 overtime victory over the Phoenix Suns.

The night began inauspiciously for the Kings, who were coming off Saturday's 107-104 overtime loss to Philadelphia. Webber, the team's leading scorer and rebounder, was ejected in the first quarter after jawing with officials.

"It was something that we really talked about after he left the floor," Divac said of Webber's impromptu exit. "That everybody needed to step up, definitely Peja did and myself."

"It was a big game for us," Stojakovic said. "It was a tough situation for us when Webber was ejected. We lost our leader and our best player. At that moment, we just had to step it up as a team. Me, Jason (Williams) and Vlade had to carry the team, take more shots and be more aggressive on offense and that's what we did."

Stojakovic, who also had 33 points against the 76ers, carried the Kings for the better part of three quarters before going scoreless in the fourth period and overtime. That was when Divac took control, scoring 14 points and grabbing several key rebounds in the final 15 minutes.

Delk, who spent last season with the Kings, had never scored more than 26 points during his five-year career but simply was unstoppable. He buried 20-of-27 shots and 13-of-15 free throws, establishing the all-time record for most points by a Sacramento opponent. Atlanta's Dominique Wilkins scored 51 points against the Kings on February 16, 1988.

"I was just feeling good," Delk said. "Early on I made a few shots and I kind of felt like I was in a zone and it just carried over every quarter. Just being aggressive, something I haven't been in every game. It was just one of those nights. I was in a groove and guys were getting me the ball."

Williams scored nine of his 15 points in overtime for the Kings, who improved to 14-2 at home, with both losses coming in overtime.

Jason Kidd had 12 points and a season-high 17 assists for the Suns, who have lost both meetings with the Kings this season.

Shawn Marion and Rodney Rogers scored 16 points apiece for the Suns, who trailed 66-51 at the half but pulled within 87-86 after Delk scored 16 points in the third quarter.

"It was tough on us when they came back in the third quarter," Divac said. "Everybody thought we were going to drop one. But we came back and really played tough defense even though Tony scored 50 on us. He was very difficult to guard."

Hitting seemingly every shot he wanted to, Delk continued his offensive arsenal in the fourth quarter. He hit consecutive 20-footers and connected again from 15 feet to give the Suns a 94-92 lead with 7:50 left in the regulation.

"He got it going," Kidd said of Delk. "And I think everybody in the stands knew that we were going to ride Tony until he got tired or stopped making them."

Delk added a pair of free throws to make it a four-point lead but Divac had the answer, burying a six-foot hook shot in the lane and answering two more free throws by Delk with two of his own. Williams followed with an 18-footer, forging a 98-98 tie with 4:38 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Delk made a basket and added two free throws around one by Chris Dudley as Phoenix opened a 103-98 advantage with 2:15 left in regulation. But Divac hit a nine-footer and added a basket before hitting two more free throws to knot the contest at 104-104 with 54 seconds remaining.

Marion buried a 19-footer to put the pressure back on the Kings with 19 seconds left but Divac responded, grabbing a rebound of Stojakovic's miss and putting it back with 6.2 seconds left, forcing overtime.

Williams hit a 3-pointer and hit another jumper off a feed from Divac to give Sacramento the lead for good, 115-112, with 1:11 left in the extra session. Delk made 1-of-2 free throws on Phoenix's ensuing trip but Divac made two from the line on the other end and Williams answered Kidd's 17-footer with two more free throws.

"Peja was terrific the first three quarters, Vlade was terrific, Jason came in and made those big plays at the end," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "It's a great team win without Chris out there."

Marion hit an eight-foot hook with 7.1 seconds to play but Williams again went 2-of-2 from the line to cap the scoring.

The Suns shot 46.5 percent (47-of-101) and committed just 12 turnovers while slipping to 1-2 in overtime this season.

Jon Barry scored 10 points for the Kings, who shot 52 percent (43-of-83) and improved to 2-3 in overtime games.

"It was a hard-fought game," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "You don't win many games when the other team shoots 52 percent. We struggled all night to keep them from scoring and when they needed a basket, they got it. We did too to a certain extent but in the very end, we didn't."
