Kings rock Memphis

Posted: Friday, January 24, 2003

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Chris Webber had 26 points and Peja Stojakovic added 22 as the Sacramento Kings rallied in the fourth quarter to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies 104-98 Thursday night and complete a sweep of the four-game season series.

Memphis took a 97-96 lead on Jason Williams's 3-pointer with 1:14 left, but the Kings scored eight straight points and the Grizzlies never recovered.

Mavericks 107, 76ers 94

PHILADELPHIA -- Dirk Nowitzki had 30 points and 14 rebounds and Steve Nash added 21 points and 13 assists.

Michael Finley scored 19 and Nick Van Exel added 16 for the Mavericks, who improved the NBA's best record to 33-8 with their second straight win after a dismal West Coast trip on which they lost three in a row.

Warriors 105, Nets 97

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Antawn Jamison had 29 points and 10 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors spoiled a special night for Jason Kidd. The Warriors became the first team in nearly 30 years to defeat the previous season's NBA finalists on successive nights. They won on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday.

Kidd, who had a season-high 41 points and seven assists, had his high school jersey from St. Joseph's in nearby Alameda retired after the game.

Kidd was two points shy of his career high, but it wasn't enough to keep the Nets from their first three-game losing streak of the season.

Earl Boykins came off the bench to score 23 points and pass for six assists for the Warriors, who won for the fourth time in five games.
