Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Not only did the Sacramento Kings win on the road, they did it with defense.

The Kings limited the Milwaukee Bucks to their second-lowest total of the season and 42 percent shooting as they rolled to a 98-73 victory.

Peja Stojakovic scored 21 points and Chris Webber added 20 and 15 rebounds for the Kings, who have the best record in the NBA but have struggled at times both on the road and on the defensive end.

Sacramento is 30-3 at home but improved to just 14-14 on the road as it began a five-game trip. The Kings won in Milwaukee for the first time since the 1996-97 season.

"We need to wins games on the road if we want to win the West," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "This was a big test for us, as this entire trip will be."

"This is the first road game all season that we played really well," Stojakovic said. "We bounced back really good today and got a good win."

The Kings came in tied for 20th in defense with Milwaukee, giving up 97 points per game. But they forced 18 turnovers as they put together their second-best defensive effort of the season against one of the NBA's better offensive teams.

"We were very good today," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We were really good. We were really ready to play and we knew it was a big game for us. I really like the way our team played, controlled the tempo and approached the game."

Milwaukee was held to its second-lowest total of the season and was caught by Boston (35-27) for third place in the Eastern Conference. It made just 33-of-78 shots.

The "Big Three" of Ray Allen, Glenn Robinson and Sam Cassell were held to 14 points apiece for the Bucks, who have lost three of their last four games. Allen started slowly and made just 6-of-18 shots.

"When we didn't make our shots early, we lost our confidence out there," Bucks coach George Karl said. "That's kind of been our Achilles' heel this year."

"I missed some easy open shots in the beginning of the game," Allen added. "I think that kind of got us discouraged a little bit. We have a tendency to get down when we miss shots early."

Milwaukee's slow start allowed Sacramento to bolt to an 11-2 lead behind seven points from Stojakovic. The Kings held a 25-20 advantage after one quarter and held the Bucks to 14 points in the second period, opening a 46-34 lead.

"We were very active and controlled the boards," Adelman said. "It was a combination of good defense on our part and their missing shots they normally make."

A layup by Allen pulled Milwaukee within 56-49 with 5:29 to play in the third quarter before it collapsed. Sacramento scored 22 of the last 26 points of the period, opening a 78-53 lead.

"We were just in a funk out there," Cassell said. "We've been in a funk for a few weeks now."

Mike Bibby had seven of his 13 points and two of his three steals during the surge. He also handed out nine assists.

A basket by Bobby Jackson gave Sacramento its largest lead at 82-53 in the opening minute of the final period.

Jackson scored 15 points for the Kings, who shot 49 percent (42-of-85) and committed just 10 turnovers. Darvin Ham scored 10 points for the Bucks.
