Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- The Sacramento Kings needed to stop their slide. The best way to do that was to get their best shooter, Peja Stojakovic, some open looks at the basket. Stojakovic scored 11 points in a 13-0 third-quarter run to help push the Kings to a 99-94 victory over the Houston Rockets that snapped a two-game slide. "We ran some different things for him," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We tried to run him off more people. It's not easy getting him open when a guy like Jimmy (Jackson) is staying right with him. We pushed the ball more where Jimmy wasn't quite set defensively." The victory moved Sacramento (53-23) back into a tie with the Los Angeles Lakers for first place in the Western Conference. Sacramento avoided its first three-game losing streak since January 24-28, 2003. The Kings trailed, 58-50, early in the third quarter when Stojakovic hit a jumper from the left baseline. Following two free throws by Mike Bibby, Stojakovic scored nine straight points to put Sacramento up, 63-58, with 5:24 left. "We just made a commitment to do it," Kings forward Chris Webber said. "We did a pretty good job of moving the ball and people movement," said Stojakovic, who made 9-of-15 shots and pulled down 11 rebounds. "Jimmy's a good defender. I know he's going to try to play physical." Houston used a 16-2 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters to surge back into the game. The Rockets eventually regained the lead at 92-91 on Steve Francis' free throw with 1:29 left. But Sacramento countered with a layup by Stojakovic and an 18-foot turnaround by Webber that decided the game. Adelman played the 6-10 Webber at center against Houston's 7-5 Yao Ming for much of the fourth quarter. "As long as we were ahead we were going to run things through Chris, occupy Yao Ming and maybe get some things at the basket," Adelman said. "Peja ended getting that layup because Yao wasn't there." Webber, playing in just his 17th game of the season since returning from a knee injury, looked more like the former All-Star. He totaled 19 points, eight rebounds and six assists. "That's my game right there," Webber said. "That's my shot. I'll take that all day." Adelman was happy to see Sacramento end its slump after losing four of its previous five games. "It's huge," he said. "We've been struggling so much, with our injuries (Brad Miller and Bobby Jackson), being on the road. We needed to get a win to jump start the rest of our season." The Rockets, who peaked at 13 games over .500 on March 13, dropped to 42-34 with their fourth straight loss. "You can't start getting scared," Houston guard Cuttino Mobley said. "We can't focus on the guys in back of us."
