Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Chris Webber led seven players in double figures with 19 points as the Sacramento Kings rebounded from a rare home loss to post a 99-79 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Webber had 17 of his points through three quarters when the Kings held a 69-66 lead. But in the first three minutes of the fourth period, the Kings pulled away.

Sacramento opened the quarter on a 10-0 run that made it 79-66 with 9:48 left. Reserve guard Bobby Jackson hit two 3-pointers during the burst and the Kings capitalized on three turnovers to turn the game into a rout.

"We turned the ball over three straight possessions down the court and that didn't allow us to get back," Hawks guard Jason Terry said. "While we were turning the ball over, they were getting baskets and that put us away."

"Their run made the game kind of scary at the end," said Jackson, who had 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter. "The job of Hedo (Turkoglu), Scot (Pollard) and I is to put energy into the team and energy onto the floor. That is what we did the second half and we just played really well in the fourth quarter. We had to put the last game behind us and just come out and play hard."

Mike Bibby, Peja Stojakovic and Doug Christie had 12 points apiece, while Turkoglu chipped in 11.

"It was nice getting a win," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "In the fourth quarter we got our hands on a lot of balls. It took us awhile to get it going."

"They're an awfully good team," Atlanta coach Lon Kruger said. "They've got a lot of weapons. They move the ball well. They're tough to match up with and they're certainly tough to beat. We're playing better. We've got a long way to go."

The Hawks got within single digits on layups by Shareef Abdur-Rahim and DerMarr Johnson. But Toni Kukoc missed a 20-foot jumper from the left side and the Kings started running.

Jackson hit a 14-footer that started another spurt. Stojakovic hit a 3-pointer and Webber took a pass from Vlade Divac for a thunderous dunk that made it 86-70 with 4:30 to go.

The Kings, who had their 20-game home winning streak snapped on Sunday against Seattle, asserted their dominance throughout the final quarter. They outscored the Hawks 30-13 and shot 69 percent (11-of-16) in the period.

Terry led the Hawks with 17 points, but Abdur-Rahim was held to just 12 as Atlanta had its three-game winning streak snapped.

Entering the game, Abdur-Rahim had been shooting 51 percent (71-of-138) while averaging 29.6 points per game over the last seven games. But each time the Hawks tried to get him the ball, the Kings converged on him with multiple defenders.

Abdur-Rahim, a first-time All-Star, shot just 6-of-18 and did get to the free throw line.

"In the fourth quarter, we just wanted tried to keep the ball out of Shareef's hands," Webber said. "We didn't want them to pull close enough or for us too get too comfortable. They have been playing well after the All-Star break, so they didn't surprise me at all."

"We just have to be better prepared, as far as making plays," Abdur-Rahim said. "We had some lapses where I think really hurt ourselves."

Sacramento could have put away the Hawks in the first half as it shot 51 percent (19-of-37) and led 50-41 at halftime.

The Kings maintained that cushion for most of the third quarter. But a 21-footer by Kukoc and a 3-pointer by Terry sparked a 13-6 run over the final 3:48 of the period.

A 3-pointer by Johnson cut the deficit to 67-66 with 31.8 seconds remaining in the quarter. But Christie hit a jumper and Webber stole the ball from Kukoc to finish the period.

Sacramento improved to a league-best 28-2 at home and moved four games ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers in the Pacific Division.
