=== Sacramento Kings Team Report – April 1 ===

(Sports Network) – The struggling Sacramento Kings play the middle contest
of a three-game road trip tonight, as they visit the Dallas Mavericks at
American Airlines Center.

Sacramento holds a slim one-game lead over the Los Angeles Lakers for the top
spot on the Pacific Division. The Kings are also just one game ahead of the
Midwest Division-leading Minnesota Timberwolves for the No. 1 seed in the
Western Conference.

This will be the fourth and final meeting of the season between the two
squads. The teams split a pair of games at ARCO Arena, while the Mavs beat
the Kings, 108-99, on January 25th at Dallas.

On Wednesday, Sacramento fell to the San Antonio Spurs, 107-89, at the SBC
Center. Peja Stojakovic scored 19 points for the Kings, who have dropped three
of their last four contests. Doug Christie netted 17 points and Chris Webber,
Vlade Divac and Mike Bibby all contributed 14 in the setback.

The Kings are 20-16 on the road this season.
