Sacramento Kings Team Report – January 30

=== Sacramento Kings Team Report – January 30 ===

(Sports Network) – Peja Stojakovic scored 22 points and Bobby Jackson added
18 off the bench, as the Sacramento Kings held off the San Antonio Spurs,
96-91, on Thursday at the SBC Center.

Mike Bibby posted 17 points to go with six assists for the Kings, who have won
two in a row. Vlade Divac just missed a triple-double with 11 points, nine
rebounds and nine assists.

After Tim Duncan’s layup with just under a minute left got the Spurs within
six at 91-85, Manu Ginobili intercepted a Bibby pass and threw the ball ahead
for a breakaway layin by Malik Rose that narrowed the gap to four with 46
ticks left.

On the ensuing possession, Jackson hit a clutch three-pointer and was fouled
by Bruce Bowen, resulting in a four-point play that all but ended the Spurs’
hopes of a comeback as they trailed 95-87 with 29 seconds to go.

Bibby is averaging 22.7 points and 4.7 assists in his last three games.

The Kings are off until Saturday when they play the final contest of a six-
game road trip at Seattle against Ray Allen and the SuperSonics. Sacramento is
3-2 on the swing.
