Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- A win over the New Orleans Hornets was a microcosm of the Sacramento Kings' season so far - a super start and a flat finish. The Kings saw a 26-point first-half lead reduced to four points early in the fourth quarter before holding on for a 105-91 victory over the shorthanded Hornets that kept them on top of the Western Conference. "We made it a lot harder than we had to," said coach Rick Adelman, who collected his 300th win with the Kings. "We were just very casual with the ball." "Sometimes you get a little complacent when you get in the lead, which is not excusable," Kings guard Doug Christie said. "I think we need to focus a little better." Peja Stojakovic scored 26 points and Chris Webber added 24 for the Kings, who won 45 of their first 60 games but are just 9-8 since, battling injuries, attentiveness and a lack of defense. "I think sometimes we try to do too much," said Webber, still playing his way back from knee surgery. "Guys really have just got to keep playing their roles. Every pass doesn't have to be a spectacular pass. So I think we'll settle down and hopefully get those turnovers down. That will help." Sacramento (54-23) shot 54 percent (39-of-72) from the field as it moved one-half game ahead of Minnesota (54-24) atop the West. It also opened a 1 1/2-game lead over the Los Angeles Lakers (53-25) in the Pacific Division. The Kings took advantage of the Hornets, who were missing injured guards Baron Davis and David Wesley and forward Jamal Mashburn. New Orleans (38-40) also found out moments before tip-off that it had clinched a playoff berth in the East with Cleveland's loss to Toronto, although it fell to sixth, one-half game behind Miami. "I don't like to make excuses," said Hornets guard Darrell Armstrong, who scored 21 points. "They're a very good passing team. When you're playing against them, you can't relax." Webber scored 17 points and Stojakovic 16 in the first half, repeatedly knocking down jumpers as the Kings opened a 60-34 lead late in the second quarter. The Hornets committed 17 of their season-high 24 turnovers in the first half. "Our turnovers hurt. I might have had five by halftime," Armstrong said. The Hornets used a 24-8 run to get back in the game. They made their first six shots of the fourth quarter, including a drive by Shammond Williams that cut the deficit to 81-77 with 7 1/2 minutes to go. The Kings awoke as Brad Miller scored on a drive, Christie had a 3-pointer and dunk and Webber made two free throws for a 90-77 bulge with 5:32 to go. Miller returned after missed three games with elbow bursitis. He had 20 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. "We've just got to get that killer punch and beat a team by like 40 before this season's over, like we've done earlier in the season," he said.
