Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Brad Miller and the Sacramento Kings proved too much for the Houston Rockets' vaunted defense to handle. Miller scored a season-high 29 points to lead the Kings to their seventh straight win, a 103-74 rout of the Rockets. Houston had been allowing just 82.2 points per game, the lowest total in the Western Conference. But its defense was no match for Sacramento's ball movement and shooting. The Kings had 33 assists on 41 baskets and shot 52 percent from the field. "Offensively, we took advantage of what we could get," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "The guys were really tuned in to what they like to do defensively and we really had answers for it." "They came out a little lazy with the ball and everyone was just talking and clicking together tonight," Miller added. Mike Bibby and Bobby Jackson each added 18 points as Sacramento extended its home winning streak to 16 games. It is 9-0 at Arco Arena this season and has not lost at home since February 16 against Dallas. Cuttino Mobley led Houston with 17 points, Steve Francis had 15 and Yao Ming 14 as the Rockets fell to 1-3 on a road trip that concludes Saturday in Seattle. "We went wrong on both ends of the floor," Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "We had some shots that we missed early. And we didn't compete when it didn't go well for us offensively." Yao's jumper at 8:50 of the first quarter gave Houston a 9-8 lead. But Sacramento responded with a 14-0 run and never trailed thereafter. "We set the tone in the first quarter by playing hard on defense," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "Everybody came out and played well on the defensive end," Jackson added. "We played as a unit. If we can do that every night, it's gonna be hard to beat us." Houston shot just 36 percent (28-of-77). Francis' struggles continued as he hit 6-of-16 shots and committed three of the Rockets' 18 turnovers. Houston's point guard has 17 turnovers in the past three games. With Francis struggling, the Rockets' offense did not run smoothly, tying a season low with 11 assists. Houston missed 11 consecutive shots in the first quarter and trailed, 25-14, at the end of the period. "We're not a high-assist team," Van Gundy said. "And we're especially not a high-assist team when we don't make shots. So you can't get any assists when the ball's not going in." Sacramento played solid defense throughout and had a season-high 15 steals. The Kings built a 54-28 halftime advantage and led by as many as 34 points in the second half.
