Shaquille O'Neal tallied 28 points and 15 boards and Kobe Bryant posted 29 points, five rebounds and eight assists to help the Lakers rebound from their first loss of the season. Both teams shot poorly in the game, with L.A. finishing 36-for-90 and Sacramento 32-for-85. The two teams were especially cold from outside the arc, combining to hit just 4 of 35 3-pointers. Peja Stojakovic led the Kings with 25 points and five rebounds, while Vlade Divac contributed 15 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists.

The Lakers scored a season-low 13 points in the third quarter and suffered their second loss of the season as a result, falling to the Chris Webber-less Kings in Sacramento. Shaquille O'Neal led the Lakers with 31 points and 16 rebounds and Kobe Bryant chipped in with 23 points and six rebounds but the Lakers still saw their nine-game winning streak snapped. Derek Fisher hit three 3-pointers in the final three minutes but the closest the Lakers got was 94-91 with 7.1 seconds left. Mike Bibby recorded 21 points and six assists for the Kings, and Peja Stojakovic scored 15 of his team-high 25 points in the fourth quarter.

Shaquille O'Neal fouled out with 1:19 left but Kobe Bryant scored eight of his 29 points in the fourth, hitting two clutch shots down the stretch to secure the win. The Kings finally had Chris Webber back in the lineup, but the All-Star's jumper bounced off the rim as time expired, saving the Lakers from another loss at Arco. Doug Christie scored 18 points and Vlade Divac grabbed a game-high 17 boards, but the Kings couldn't overcome the absence of Peja Stojakovic, who missed the game with a strained right hamstring.

Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal each scored 21 points to help the Lakers beat the Kings in the regular-season finale. Sacramento, minus Chris Webber, Bobby Jackson and Hedo Turkoglu, was led by Mike Bibby's 15 points and Scot Pollard's 11 rebounds. The Kings didn't have much to play for, having already secured the NBA's best record and home-court advantage, but the Lakers clinched the No. 3 seed with the win.
