Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- In Chris Webber's return, the Sacramento Kings showed they can still win without him. Webber had 26 points and 12 rebounds in his season debut and Peja Stojakovic scored six points in the final two minutes as the Kings held off the Los Angeles Clippers, 113-106. One of the best players in the game, Webber missed the first 58 games recovering from knee surgery and serving an eight-game suspension. The Kings hardly missed the five-time All-Star, posting a league-best 43-15 mark. Webber was in the starting lineup and came out firing, scoring nine points in the first quarter on short hooks and mid-range jumpers, even missing a dunk. "I really didn't even feel like I was playing until I missed that first dunk and guys were telling me, 'Your lungs are burning, aren't they?'" Webber said. "It felt good to score the first bucket in retrospect, but when I did it, I didn't even realize it." "Everybody just kind of played like he's been out there the whole time," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "I never expected him to play like he did tonight. ... He's an amazing athlete." Overall, Webber played 30 minutes and made 12-of-18 shots, looking very sharp for someone who had not played in almost 10 months. "I saw him do good things in practice, but after 10 months to be almost perfect on his game - whew," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "Obviously, he's back and he's gonna help us a lot." "I guess Webber was really rusty," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I'd hate to see him when he warms up." Webber took a seat with 4:20 to play as two free throws by Stojakovic gave the Kings a 101-95 lead. "I wanted to be in there so bad," Webber said. "But at the same time, coach has a plan for how I'm going to do. He has a belief and we all have a belief in the players we have on the team." "We had been playing with Brad (Miller) and Vlade down the stretch and I told him that," Adelman said. "I'm not going to extend him. We should be able to go out and win games with those two guys at the end, too." However, the Clippers battled back for a 102-101 edge with 2:21 to go on two free throws by Elton Brand, who scored 25 points. Stojakovic made a running bank shot with two minutes to go. Marko Jaric gave Los Angeles its last lead at 104-103 with a weaving layup at the 1:22 mark, but Stojakovic sank two free throws, then made a key steal and layup for a 107-104 advantage with 51 seconds remaining. Sacramento held on, making 6-of-6 free throws in the final 23 seconds for its 12th straight home win in the series. "That shows about this team," said Divac, who had 12 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. 'We're a very good team and we have a lot of different players who can score, and coach decided to go with the team that played the first 60 games." Stojakovic and Miller - an All-Star relegated to a reserve role by Webber's return - each scored 23 points for the Kings, who swept the season series for the first time since the 1976-77 campaign, when the Kings were in Kansas City and the Clippers were the Buffalo Braves. Corey Maggette scored 32 points and Quentin Richardson added 17 for the Clippers, who have lost four of five and nine of 12. The Kings led by as many as 12 points in the first half before settling for a 60-54 halftime advantage. Webber scored nine points in the third quarter, but LA closed the gap to 82-78 entering the final period. Webber's performance even impressed the Clippers. "That's C-Webb, man," Maggette said. "He came out and did his thing. He hasn't played for 10 months. But he's an All-Star."
