Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Chris Webber had trouble with his free throws but no problem with his 3-pointers. After missing a pair of foul shots, Webber buried a 3-pointer that gave the Sacramento Kings a 93-92 victory over the Boston Celtics. Just a 60 percent foul shooter, Webber missed a pair from the line with 31 seconds left that would have given Sacramento a 92-91 lead. Celtics rookie J.R. Bremer made 1-of-2 from the line with 14 seconds to go, giving the Kings a chance to tie or take the lead. They did just that with the help of Webber, who made his fifth 3-pointer of the season. "Coach drew up the play and I told Mike (Bibby) I wanted to shoot the three," Webber said. "He's my boy and he came off the pick and threw it back to me and trusted me. Even more than making it, is the fact that he would trust me." "He's a great player," Boston forward Antoine Walker said. "He mad some big shots tonight especially after missing two free throws. To step up and take that three took a lot of guts." Coming out of a timeout, Bibby took the inbounds pass and drew two defenders on a pick-and-roll, leaving Webber open at the top for his first 3-pointer since March 22 at Portland. "I told him I wanted to pass it to him because they jump," Bibby said. "He says, 'No, dribble off because I'm going to be open for a jump shot'. He said, 'I'm gonna step back and shoot a three.'" Asked if they expected Webber to take a 3-pointer, Celtics coach Jim O'Brien said, "Of course not. He's shooting 23 percent from the three." "Of all those guys who hit the floor, Chris Webber was the least likely person to take that kind of shot," Boston guard Paul Pierce said. "It was a good play. They went out there for the win." After Webber's 3-pointer, Pierce, who cored 40 points, was well-defended by Jimmy Jackson and his mid-range jumper at the buzzer was short. Webber scored 27 points as the Kings improved to 4-1 on their six-game road trip, which ends Sunday in Philadelphia. Webber's big basket helped Sacramento avert a bad loss and made up for a pair of missed baskets and a turnover minutes earlier. "We didn't think it was going come down to that," Bibby said. "But everything happens for a reason, and Chris made a big shot." Thanks to 49 percent shooting (21-of-43) in the first half, the Kings bolted to a 56-40 advantage at halftime. They extended it to 64-45 with over five minutes remaining in the third period before Pierce scored 10 points in a 20-6 surge that closed Boston's deficit to 70-65 entering the fourth quarter. Boston trailed, 84-78, with 2:33 remaining when Walter McCarty and Pierce sank consecutive 3-pointers to tie it. But Webber and Jackson outmuscled Boston's frontcourt to back-to-back layups to rebuild the lead to 88-84 with 96 seconds remaining. Pierce sank a pair from the line and converted three-point play after Webber could not hold on to a rebound, giving Boston an 89-88 lead with 46 seconds to play. The lead lasted just seven seconds as Webber hit a jumper. But Pierce made a pair from the line for a 91-90 edge with 31 seconds left, setting the stage for the dramatic finish. Three times on this trip, Sacramento has wasted leads of 20 or more points. The Kings blew a 22-point lead in a loss at Detroit on Sunday and nearly squandered all of a 21-point lead at Washington on Wednesday. "We've talked about that situation and how we've got to try and put that situation away to keep the lead," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "But they made their run and that happens all the time."
