(Friday, March 11th)
Final Score: Sacramento 113, LA Clippers 112
Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) - Mike Bibby nailed his second straight game- winning shot in the final seconds, as the Sacramento Kings edged the Los Angeles Clippers, 113-112.
Bibby led all scorers with 28 points and made 12 of 20 shots, none bigger than his fadeaway with 4/10ths of a second remaining.
Rick Brunson had made a steal and fed Bobby Simmons for the go-ahead layup with 4.9 seconds left, giving the Clippers a 112-111 advantage.
But Sacramento inbounded the ball to Bibby, who had made winners of the Kings Wednesday with a last-second shot against Memphis. Bibby did it again for the Kings Friday, juking his defender and hitting a fadeaway jumper just inside the three-point line to give Sacramento its third straight victory.
"It felt good but I didn't know (if it was going in)," said Bibby of the last shot. "I didn't feel like I snapped enough. But the flight looked good, and I'm glad it went in."
Corliss Williamson added 22 points, Cuttino Mobley 21 and Brian Skinner 14 with nine rebounds. The Kings are an impressive 23-8 at home this season, and have won four straight at ARCO Arena.
