Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber's foul trouble was no trouble for the "Bench Mob."

Scot Pollard, rookie Hidayet Turkoglu and Bobby Jackson covered for Webber in the fourth quarter and helped lift the Sacramento Kings to a 98-89 victory over the plummeting Portland Trail Blazers.

Webber, one of the top candidates for NBA Most Valuable Player, took a seat with his fifth foul with 10:17 remaining and the game tied, 74-74.

The superstar power forward returned with about 4 1/2 minutes to go and did not score in the final period. But it did not matter as Pollard, Turkoglu and Jackson -- Sacramento's reserves who call themselves the "Bench Mob" -- combined for 12 points.

"I thought we played great," Jackson said. "We've got to do that on some nights. Some nights, he's gonna get in foul trouble. We came out and played extremely well with Webb on the bench with five fouls."

"Hedo, Scot, Jon (Barry) and Bobby all did a great job today, which will be key as we head into the playoffs," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "All of the guys stepped up when Webb was in foul trouble."

Pollard scored five points in the first four-plus minutes of the period, allowing Sacramento to keep pace with Portland. Turkoglu drilled a 3-pointer and added a free throw 29 seconds later to give the Kings the lead for good at 87-83 midway through the quarter.

Jackson made just one basket in the fourth quarter, but it may have been the biggest of the game. After Portland closed to 89-87 with 3:21 to play, Jackson made a 3-pointer from the left wing that gave the Kings a five-point bulge.

"Coach Carril (assistant Pete Carril) is always getting on me to keep on working on my 3-point shot," Jackson said. "It was a tough shot I hit but I had to take it because I was open. I've been working on it during and after practice."

Scottie Pippen made a drive with 2:27 left, but Portland did not score again. Starters Peja Stojakovic and Vlade Divac combined for the last six points as the Kings pulled away.

Webber and Stojakovic each scored 20 points and Divac added 13 and 17 rebounds for Sacramento, which remained one game ahead of the second-place Los Angeles Lakers in the Pacific Division.

Turkoglu scored 12 points, Pollard 10 and Jackson seven to help the "Bench Mob" enjoy a 33-21 edge over Portland's ballyhooed bench.

"Everybody knows what we have to do when C-Webb, Vlade or Peja is on the bench," Jackson said. "Everybody has to step up and play well."

Pippen scored 21 points for the Trail Blazers, who have lost 11 of their last 17 games. The free-fall has dropped Portland from first to sixth in the West, just one-half game ahead of Phoenix.

"We're starting to play harder and that's the most important thing," Pippen said. "We realize the sense of urgency and what we have to do as a team."

If Sacramento holds its position in the West and Portland falls behind Phoenix, the teams would meet in the first round of the playoffs. The Kings were 3-1 against the Blazers this season after being swept last last season.

"This wins the tiebreaker and it keeps pushing us a little further ahead and the teams behind us a little further back," Kings guard Doug Christie said.

In the fourth quarter, there were three lead changes and six ties, that last coming at 83-83 with 6:16 left on two foul shots by Detlef Schrempf. Turkoglu answered with his 3-pointer.

Webber returned with 4:24 to go and Rasheed Wallace had a pair of free throws and a lefthanded scoop layup around two from the line by Divac, pulling Portland within two. Jackson responded with his 3-pointer.

After Pippen's drive, the Blazers had a chance to get closer but Arvydas Sabonis missed two free throws with 1:56 to play. Divac made a layup off a great baseline bounce pass by Stojakovic and added two free throws around a jumper by Stojakovic in the final minute.

Doug Christie scored 10 points for the Kings, who overcame 37 percent (34-of-91) shooting by committing just six turnovers and winning the battle of the boards, 56-49.

Dale Davis had 13 points and nine rebounds and Wallace added 12 and 11 for the Blazers, who shot 42 percent (35-of-83) and had 13 turnovers.

Both teams blew double-digit leads. Portland led 29-17 after one quarter but Sacramento rallied for a 43-42 halftime lead and opened an 11-point bulge in the third period.
