Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- It was the same story with a different and much more disappointing ending for the New York Knicks.

The Knicks suffered a 124-117 loss to the Sacramento Kings, who rallied behind Chris Webber and pulled away in overtime behind Peja Stojakovic.

For the second straight night, the Knicks squandered a huge lead and rallied to force overtime with a late 3-pointer, this one an unlikely bomb from Kurt Thomas. However, they did not have enough in the extra session and fell to 1-1 on their five-game road trip.

"It's hard to win that way," Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "You can't beat yourself in this league. Hopefully we're going to get it corrected before the end of this trip."

On Monday in Golden State, New York led by 20 points in the third quarter but gave it away and needed a 3-pointer from Glen Rice to force overtime, where it held on for an 89-87 win.

In this one, the Knicks led by 18 late in the second period but found themselves trailing 110-105 with 23 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Latrell Sprewell raced in for a layup and New York forced a turnover by Jason Williams on the ensuing inbounds pass.

The ball wound up in the left corner in the hands of Thomas, a power forward who was 0-of-2 from the arc this season and 1-of-9 in his career. As Van Gundy screamed, "No!," Thomas launched the tying shot with 6.4 seconds to play.

"I don't get the opportunity to shoot a lot of them," Thomas said. "Normally when I do shoot one it's at the end of the game and I have to force one up. This was one of the best looks I've had of my nine or 10 attempts."

But Stojakovic took over in overtime, scoring 12 points. He hit Sacramento's first three baskets, including a jumper from the right corner that gave the Kings the lead for good at 116-115 with 2:53 left.

"My shot wasn't dropping so I just needed to focus a little more and try to make some shots," said Stojakovic, who was 10-of-18 from the field. "I was trying to be a more aggressive shooter. The whole game I was trying to find my rhythm, like every minute I was hoping for it."

Webber, who had 39 points and 15 rebounds, added a tough inside shot on the next possession and Stojakovic drilled a 3-pointer to make it 121-115 with 1:39 to go. Stojakovic added three free throws in the final 30 seconds and finished with 29 points.

"I need Peja every night," Webber said. "I think he is still the best shooter in the league and there were a lot of great shooters on the floor tonight with (New York's) Allan Houston and Glen Rice but I'm just glad that he kept going."

It was a wild game that featured the ejection of Knicks forward Larry Johnson, Webber's 10,000th career point and seven ties and seven lead changes in the fourth quarter and overtime. The Knicks dropped to 6-2 in overtime and the Kings improved to 7-4.

Doug Christie scored 17 points and Williams added 16 and eight assists for the Kings (47-22), who moved one game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers atop the Pacific Division heading into Wednesday night's showdown in LA.

Sacramento also welcomed back coach Rick Adelman, who missed Sunday's home loss to the Lakers with the flu. It was the first time in 11 years as an NBA coach that Adelman had missed a game.

"It was a great win," assistant John Wetzel said. "I think the fact that we let them make the steal and tie the game was really a bit of a downer but we presevered in the overtime and came out and made some really good decisions."

Thomas scored a season-high 23 points, Rice added 22 and Houston and Sprewell 21 apiece for the Knicks (42-28), who remained tied with Miami for third place in the Eastern Conference.

Stojakovic scored 11 points as the Kings stormed from an 83-78 deficit to a 99-94 lead with 5:07 left in the fourth quarter. Rice made two 3-pointers in a 9-0 surge that gave the Knicks a 103-99 lead with 3:14 remaining.

Rookie Hidayet Turkoglu made 1-of-2 from the line and Webber turned the miss into a follow shot and a three-point play for a 103-103 tie with 2:36 to go. New York center Marcus Camby, who had 16 points and 14 boards, picked up his sixth foul on the play.

"The offensive rebound on the missed free throw, missed free throws and bad execution down the stretch lost us the game," Sprewell said.

Rice made two free throws but teammate Mark Jackson missed a pair. Webber tied it with two from the line and passed out of a double-team to Williams, who drilled a 3-pointer for a 108-105 lead with 34 seconds left.

When Jackson was called for an offensive foul and Turkoglu hit two free throws, it was 110-105 and it looked to be over. But the Knicks scrambled to force overtime.

Vlade Divac scored 13 points for the Kings, who shot 52 percent (42-of-81), including 9-of-20 from 3-point range.

The Knicks shot 45.5 percent (40-of-88), including 8-of-15 from the arc.
