=== Sacramento Kings Team Report – November 6 ===
(Sports Network) – Peja Stojakovic poured in 34 points to lead the Sacramento
Kings to a 125-121 overtime win over Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target
Stojakovic scored 26 points in the second half and finished 11-of-19 from the
field, including 5-of-6 from three-point range.
Mike Bibby added 22 points, while Vlade Divac chipped in 19 points and grabbed
10 rebounds for the Kings, who rebounded from their only loss of the year on
Saturday against Denver.
Bobby Jackson also had 19 points and Brad Miller scored 17 in the win.
Two free throws by Kevin Garnett with 21 seconds left in the fourth gave the
Timberwolves a 110-108 edge, but Bibby’s jumper with 9.7 seconds to go in the
period tied the score and sent the contest into OT.
Bibby’s layup with 2:44 remaining in overtime gave Sacramento a 116-112
cushion and Stojakovic’s three-pointer just under one minute later made it a
five-point contest. The Kings held on from there.
Sacramento is off until Friday when it travels to New York to tangle with the
Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
