Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- With Boston Celtics forward Antoine Walker hitting a franchise-record nine 3-pointers, the Sacramento Kings used their best shooting performance of the season for a 111-106 victory.

Chris Webber had 30 points and nine rebounds and Peja Stojakovic scored nine of his 26 points in the fourth quarter as the Kings shot a season-high 56 percent (44-of-79) and won for the fifth time in six games.

Vlade Divac, who had 12 points and 11 rebounds, gave the Kings a 103-101 lead when he took a pass from Jason Williams and hit a layup. Williams then stole a pass from Bryant Stith and dribbled to the left corner, where he hit a 15-footer for a 105-101 lead with 1:55 to go.

Walker hit a layup with 1:45 remaining, but Stojakovic answered with a jumper from left wing 12 seconds later for a 107-103 lead. Walker followed by hittting his ninth 3-pointer of the game, breaking Dee Brown's team record and pulling Boston within 107-106.

Stojakovic, who made just 3-of-10 shots in the first half, again answered by hitting an 18-footer from the left wing with 64 seconds left.

"I thought I wasn't particularly aggressive in the first half," Stojakovic said. "I just decided to be more aggressive offensively and that's what I did."

After the teams exchanged misses, Boston had a chance to tie the game. But Walker's 3-pointer hit off the back iron with five seconds left. Stojakovic grabbed the rebound and after getting fouled, hit two free throws for the final margin.

"We got exactly the shot we were looking for," said Boston coach Jim O'Brien. "I thought our guys executed well. Antoine had the hot hand. It's a tough play to guard, we've been working hard on it in practice and in that situation, we didn't want to call timeout."

"I got a great look," Walker said about his last shot. "Coach O'Brien drew up a great play coming out of the timeout and we knew they wouldn't be prepared for it."

Walker, coming off his third triple-double of the season in Monday's win at Minnesota, finished with a season-high 47 points. He made 16-of-29 shots, including 9-of-14 from behind the arc. The 6-9 Walker fell two points short of his career best, set in a 110-108 loss at Washington on January 7, 1998. He also handed out 13 assists to match his career best from a 119-113 win at Philadelphia on April 18, 1997.

Paul Pierce, who scored a career-high 42 points vs. Minnesota, had 18 and Stith added 17 for Boston. The Celtics shot 51 percent (41-of-81), becoming the first team to make more than half their shots against the Kings this season.

Webber scored 22 points in the first half and Williams added 12 of his 17 as the Kings took a 58-53 lead into the intermission.

"In no way should we think we can turn it on and off," Webber said. "This game really shouldn't have been as close as it was. We should be happy that we got the win, but not happy about the way we played."

Walker hit a 3-pointer to cap a 13-4 burst and give the Celtics a 76-72 advantage with 4:14 left in the third quarter. Sacremento answered with 9-2 surge for an 83-78 edge on Stojakovic's free throw with 1:49 to play.

Boston's biggest lead came with 5:15 left when Pierce hit a basket to make it 99-93. The Kings came right back as Stojakovic sank a 3-pointer 20 seconds later and Divac made a finger roll in the lane to trim the lead to 99-98.
