=== Sacramento Kings Team Report – April 5 ===
(Sports Network) – Peja Stojakovic scored 28 points and grabbed 11 rebounds
to lead Sacramento over Houston, 99-94, on Sunday at the Toyota Center.
Chris Webber added 19 points, eight boards and six assists for the Kings, who
won for just the second time in six games. Sacramento is now tied with
Minnesota for the top seed in the Western Conference and is also one-half game
ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers for first place in the Pacific Division.
On the injury front, the Kings were again without center Brad Miller, who has
missed the team’s last three games with bursitis in his right elbow. Miller,
though, has been practicing with the team and could return on Tuesday against
the New Orleans Hornets.
Sacramento, which won just its second game in eight road tilts, will start a
two-game homestand on Tuesday. The Kings have won seven of eight and 10 of
their last 12 games at home and are 32-6 in their arena.
Sacramento defeated the Hornets earlier in the season and has won five of six
and nine of the last 11 meetings. The Kings have also won six straight and
nine of their last 10 at home in this series.
