Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Don't hand the Pacific Division title to the Portland Trail Blazers just yet.

Chris Webber scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings posted their second straight triumph over Trail Blazers, 111-101.

"(It does) more than build confidence, it stablizes the confidence that we have," Webber said. "We've been confident all year. It's just good to get a win like this."

"Our guys played like they belonged here," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "This was a win on the road against a very good team. I was especially pleased with our attitude. Give our guys a lot of credit. They believed they could win and they did."

Peja Stojakovic added 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting and Jason Williams had 12 as the Kings won in Portland for only the second time in the last 34 visits.

"It's a great challenge playing Portland," Stojakovic said. "They have a great team and a great bench. We've been losing to them for the last few years. This year we have a different team."

Rasheed Wallace scored 25 points and Damon Stoudamire chipped in 21 for the Trail Blazers, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Arvydas Sabonis contributed 18 points and eight rebounds.

"They played extremely well," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "They are the league's best offensive team. They can take you off the dribble and they are a great passing team, too. They got the whistles going to the rim and we didn't, but they were very aggressive."

Stojakovic nailed a 3-pointer to cap an 8-0 run that gave Sacramento a 96-87 lead with 5:11 to play. The Blazers missed seven shots during that span.

After a timeout, Portland re-inserted starters Wallace and Stoudamire and scored seven straight points to pull within 96-94.

Doug Christie and Webber had baskets for the Kings but Sabonis made a jumper that trimmed the Blazers' deficit to 100-99. Stojakovic converted a three-point play for the Kings, but Wallace knocked down two free throws to make it 103-101 with 68 seconds left.

Kings rookie Hidayet Turkoglu was fouled, made the first free throw but missed the second. Webber gobbled up the rebound and converted the putback to make it 106-101 with 51 seconds remaining.

The Blazers' lead in the Pacific Division was cut to a half-game over the Kings. Portland made just 7-of-11 free throws in comparison to the Kings' 18-of-26.

"We didn't get to the line," Portland guard Steve Smith said. "If we got to the line a little more and drew some more fouls, it would have made it a little closer."

Portland took an 80-74 lead with 4:25 to play in the third quarter on a layup by Bonzi Wells. But the Kings closed the period with a 10-2 run, including seven points by Webber, and never trailed again.

Webber was dominant as he made 15-of-28 shots in addition to six assists and four steals.

"He has been terrific," Adelman said. "Every game he is like this. I think he is the league's (top) Most Valuable Player candidate. He's such a great player that can do so many things."

Stoudamire made 10-of-17 shots and Sabonis 9-of-15 as Portland shot 56 percent (44-of-79). However, the Blazers committed 19 turnovers that resulted in 20 points by Sacramento.

Turkoglu and Christie had 11 points apiece as the Kings matched Portland's hot shooting by making 43-of-77 shots (56 percent).

"It was incredible tonight," Christie said. "In the first half we were both shooting well. It's been quite awhile since I've been in a game like that. I think both teams were confident in what they were doing and what we were running."

Sacramento ended an 11-game losing streak against Portland on November 6 with a 79-75 victory in the only previous meeting between the teams this season.

"We didn't play solid defense and we gave them too many open looks," Stoudamire said. "We have to give them credit, too. We have to bounce back because we have a four-game road trip ahead of us and we have to get ready for that."

Adelman summed up the mood of his team after waht he called the Kings' biggest victory of the season.

"I'm going to enjoy this one tonight," he said.
