Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Peja Stojakovic scored 31 points and Chris Webber added 23 as the Sacramento Kings stayed in the hunt for the Pacific Division crown with a 110-100 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Vlade Divac had 21 points and 16 rebounds for the Kings, who tied a franchise record with their 33rd home win and the Los Angeles Lakers for the top spot in the Pacific and the second seed in the Western Conference.

Sacramento must win its final game at Denver and have the Lakers lose to the Nuggets on Tuesday to claim its first division title since 1979. Los Angeles owns the tiebreaker if the teams finish with the same record.

"We're a little tired, but we did enough to win the game," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "Before this game we had two disappointing losses. I think we have to look at the season. We wanted to with two wins, and 56 wins would give us the third-best record in the NBA. These guys have worked their tails off all year and those last two losses were tough, but we had a heck of a year. We wanted to finish on a good note in Denver and get ready for playoffs."

With their 55th win, the Kings matched the single-season franchise record, set by the 1963-64 Cincinnati Royals. They also tied the 1949-50 Rochester Royals for most home wins.

"Fifty-five wins means that we've made great progress in the three years that this team's been together," Stojakovic said. "We had the division in our hands, but we had tough games on the road. We can't look at the past, at what we couldn't done and what we didn't do. We can't get down on ourselves, we just have to look to the future and get ready for the playoffs."

Damon Jones scored a career-high 25 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim contributed 18 for Vancouver, which suffered its sixth straight loss as it began its final two-game road trip as a Canadian franchise.

Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley has applied for relocation to Memphis, Tennessee and the franchise's fate will be decided over the summer.

"I thought our guys played hard," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "We came out and were aggressive and pushed the ball down the floor and got some easy baskets against them. But they wore us down."

Jones started in place of the team's second-leading scorer, guard Michael Dickerson, who has missed three games with an abdominal strain.

"I just wanted to come out and be aggressive, as if I was in Michael Dickerson's shoes," Jones said. "That's the way he plays. I wanted to come in and try to fill his shoes as best as I could, and fortunately for me I had some shots go down."

Despite owning just one victory in Arco Arena, Vancouver trailed by only one point at halftime and tied it at 61-61 on a jumper by Abdur-Rahim with 9:19 left in the third quarter.

The Kings answered with a 7-0 run, taking a 68-61 advantage with 7:47 remaining on a pair of free throws by Stojakovic, and never trailed thereafter.

Vancouver closed to 68-66, but Sacramento scored 14 of the next 21 points and opened an 82-73 lead on Stojakovic's layup with 2:14 left in the quarter. The Kings cruised to their fifth straight victory over the Grizzlies and sixth in a row at home.

They are 19-5 all-time against Vancouver, going 12-1 at home.

"I think the Kings have just as good a shot as San Antonio, Los Angeles or Utah," Abdur-Rahim said, referring to Sacramento's playoff chances. "You've got to put them right there, and teams are going to worry about them just as much. From the lockout year to now, they've made improvements and have gotten better and better."

Doug Christie had 18 points and seven rebounds for Sacramento, which shot 46 percent (42-for-91) from the field and outscored the Grizzlies, 52-36, in the paint.

Bibby scored 15 points, Bryant Reeves chipped in 12 and six rebounds and Tony Massenburg had 11 points as the Grizzlies shot 44 percent (37-for-84) and were outrebounded, 49-40.
