Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Peja Stojakovic scored a career-high 39 points and drilled the go-ahead 3-pointer with 45 seconds to play in triple-overtime as the exhausted Sacramento Kings pulled out a 119-118 triumph over the Toronto Raptors.

Stojakovic hit 14-of-29 shots, including 6-of-10 3-pointers -- none more important than the 23-footer from the right corner that put Sacramento ahead to stay.

"It was a set play," he said. "I saw Jerome Wiliams on me, but I was too tired to think about it. I just let it go. I was so happy to see it go down, so we could finally win the game."

The Raptors had a chance to answer after the Kings were called for a shot-clock violation with 4.4 seconds left.

But Charles Oakley's potential winning 22-footer bounded off the rim as time expired, leaving the Raptors deflated and sending the Kings, who were coming off Thursday's 115-110 win at Washington, into a raucous celebration.

"It was a terrific game," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Both teams had chances to win. We are fortunate they missed the last shot."

Perhaps missing recently traded point guard Mark Jackson's floor leadership down the stretch, the Raptors missed their final five shots in regulation while the Kings rallied.

Stojakovic buried a 21-footer with less than three seconds to go, putting Sacramento in front, 97-95.

"Peja's been our best player lately," Kings center Vlade Divac said.

The Raptors called timeout and Stojakovic immediately put his index finger to his lips to silence the crowd at Air Canada Centre with no idea it would take another 15 minutes to shut them up for good.

Vince Carter, who established a Toronto team record by playing all 63 minutes, caught the ensuing inbounds pass with 2.7 seconds left and went to the basket hard, drawing a foul from Divac while his layup attempt rimmed out.

Carter drained the first free throw and, after the Kings froze the All-Star forward with a 20-second timeout, stepped to the line again and calmly made the second, knotting the contest at 97-97 with four-tenths of a second remaining.

"You don't think about it when you're out there," Carter said. "I didn't feel tired and it didn't seem like I was out there that long. We fought hard, played hard but just didn't get the win. We have nothing to hang our heads about when you take a team like Sacramento to triple-overtime."

"It was an excellent game, if you were watching," Divac said. "But a tough game to play. As a team we played well and played good defense in crunch time."

The Raptors appeared to have the game in hand in the first overtime, but Jackson's replacement at the point, Alvin Williams, twice let it slip through his fingers.

After hitting a pair of jumpers to give the Raptors a 105-101 lead with 1:46 remaining in the first extra session, Williams committed a pair of costly turnovers, the first of which led to Scot Pollard's tying dunk with 23 seconds remaining.

Williams again had the ball poked out of his hands before getting off a potential winning shot on the ensuing trip as the teams went to a second overtime.

Williams redeemed himself with 10 seconds remaining in the second overtime, making a layup to forge a 112-112 tie. Carter nearly beat the buzzer with a wild shot that appeared to slip out of his hands before swishing through.

Carter finished with 38 points and 10 rebounds and Williams had his first double-double with 18 points and a career-high 13 assists for the Raptors, who have lost four of five and fell to 1-2 all-time in triple-overtime.

Toronto had not played since Wednesday's 113-111 loss at New Jersey but was unable to prevent the Kings from winning their third straight game without injured superstar Chris Webber, who did not accompany the team on its three-game road trip.

Divac scored 25 points, former Raptor Doug Christie had 20 in his first visit to Toronto as an opposing player and Pollard added 19 points and a season-high 17 rebounds for the Kings, who improved to 4-2 without Webber.

"Scot Pollard was terrific," Adelman said. "He was so good all night long. Our guys executed the last shot to perfection. It was a great win for us. I'm very proud of the guys."

"It was good for us to play this well in the second game of a back-to-back," Christie said. "Once the crowd started booing (me), the game began to mean more to me than it did at the beginning."

Tracy Murray scored a season-high 18 points, rookie Morris Peterson added 13 and Oakley 11 for Toronto, which shot 42 percent (46-of-109) and committed just 11 turnovers.

The Kings shot 42 percent (43-of-102) and held a 55-48 rebounding advantage.

The game featured a whopping 33 lead changes and 26 ties.
