NBA Game Summary - Sacramento at Orlando



(Wednesday, February 23rd)

Final Score: Sacramento 111, Orlando 105

Orlando, FL (Sports Network) - Jermaine Taylor dropped in a career-high 21 points to lead Sacramento to an unlikely 111-105 victory over Orlando at Amway Center.

Beno Udrih provided 18 points and 10 assists, while Jason Thompson and Samuel Dalembert added 17 points apiece for the Kings, who dropped a 20-point decision at Miami on Tuesday.

Dwight Howard put up 31 points and 17 rebounds for Orlando, which had won four of five entering the All-Star break but shot just 8-of-28 from three-point range on Wednesday.

"I'm not happy with anything other than Dwight right now," said Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy. "I'm just not happy with anything. Everything I look at on here, on the stat sheet, is just not good."

With under 3 1/2 minutes remaining, Dalembert broke a 98-98 tie on a hook shot, then followed a Ryan Anderson missed three-pointer with a layup.

Jameer Nelson put in two free throws and a jumper around an Udrih basket to keep Orlando within one possession, but the Kings closed the game out at the free throw line.

Thompson made two from the stripe with 48.9 seconds left for a 106-102 lead, Luther Head added a jumper and Udrih sealed it with two freebies with 15.1 ticks showing.

"In the fourth quarter our execution was excellent. We made some big shots, got some big stops. We're going away happy," said Kings head coach Paul Westphal.

The Kings led 31-25 after 12 minutes, but Orlando came back strong in the second frame to take a 61-58 edge into halftime.

The Magic went up by as many as 12, 78-66, following Jason Richardson's alley- oop dunk with 4 1/2 minutes left in the third.

Sacramento answered with an 11-2 run and was within 84-79 heading to the fourth.
