Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- While Sacramento Kings center Vlade Divac was in the middle of a comeback, New York Knicks center Dikembe Mutombo put himself in the middle of a controversy. Divac sparked a fourth-quarter surge with his passing and shooting as the Kings continued their homecourt dominance with a 107-99 victory over the Knicks, their seventh win in eight games. Divac had 14 points, seven rebounds and nine assists. In the final period, he was the focal point of the offense, setting up teammates Mike Bibby and Peja Stojakovic for open jumpers. "That is all I can do," the 36-year-old Divac said. "I can't run, I can't jump, that is all I can do is get the ball and pass it. It is fun, lots of credit for the guys, they know how to play without the ball, great cuts and they make the shots, it is easy to pass to those type of players." "What Vlade has done since the All-Star Game has been incredible," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "People don't really understand what he's meant to us." Mutombo was not on the floor down the stretch. The plodding 7-2 shot-blocker was not on the floor at the opening tip, either, as Knicks coach Lenny Wilkens started Nazr Mohammed, who is quicker and more agile. A four-time Defensive Player of the Year, Mutombo is not happy about his changing role with the team. He was scoreless in 13 minutes, while Mohammed had 15 points and eight rebounds in his first start since being acquired nine days ago. Mutombo did not want to talk about the lineup change after the game, but Marbury offered an opinion. "It's just a little bit different with Nazr in," he said. "He is a little bit more athletic, as far as getting up the court. He sets picks, he can get out. Deke is more of a shot-blocker. When you have a guy like Vlade, who is playing out more on the perimeter, you need a switch-up. I think the switch-up was good." Bibby scored 28 points and Stojakovic added 27. They combined for 21 points in the fourth quarter, when the Kings pulled away for their seventh straight home win against the Knicks. "Vlade is a key for us," said Stojakovic, who made 4-of-8 3-pointers. "Every time it goes through him, we get the good shots, either a layup or we line up a three. It's better spacing on the offensive end when we go through him." "Stojakovic and Bibby, they were making some tough shots," Knicks guard Stephon Marbury said. Rookie Darius Songaila had 17 points and a season-high 13 rebounds for Sacramento, which has won 29 straight home games against Eastern Conference foes and improved to 25-4 at Arco Arena, the best mark in the NBA. Tim Thomas scored a season-high 33 points and Marbury added 15 and nine assists for the Knicks, who began a four-game road trip with their third straight loss. "We played very well for three quarters," Wilkens said. "We had some opportunities (toward the end). We missed some shots, and that always hurts you." Thomas scored 14 points in the third quarter, when New York used a 16-4 run to open a 74-66 lead. But Doug Christie and Stojakovic made 3-pointers in a 12-4 surge that closed the quarter and pulled Sacramento into a 78-78 tie. "It was just a matter of me getting comfortable, learning the system, being around the guys," said Thomas, acquired in the same deal that landed Mohammed. "The last couple of practices have really helped." The run continued in the fourth quarter. Divac made two free throws for an 85-80 advantage. Marbury had a three-point play, but the Kings rattled off 11 straight points - five by Stojakovic and four by Bibby. After the Knicks closed to 96-87 with 4:12 to play, Divac found Bibby for a 3-pointer and Christie for a jumper before scoring himself for a 103-89 lead with 2:40 left. "He's a great point man because he knows how to pass the ball and he can shoot the ball extremely well," Marbury said.
