=== Sacramento Kings Team Report – January 27 ===

(Sports Network) – The Sacramento Kings were defeated by the Dallas
Mavericks, 108-99, on Sunday at American Airlines Center.

Peja Stojakovic led all players with 24 points and added 10 boards for
Sacramento, which has dropped three of four since a five-game winning streak.
Mike Bibby chipped in 23 points and Brad Miller scored 11 with a game-high 17
rebounds.

Dallas held a slim 76-75 lead entering the fourth quarter, and later led by as
many as eight in the stanza, but allowed the Kings to pull even at 97-97 late
in the game.

However, the Mavericks outscored Sacramento 11-2 over the final two minutes of
play for the win. Steve Nash scored the final six points for Dallas, all from
the free throw line, and Dirk Nowitzki added a key three-point play.

Sacramento fell to 9-2 in Sunday games this season.

The Kings are off until Wednesday when they visit Yao Ming and the Houston
Rockets.
