The Kings struggled in a 97-91 defeat at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, then saw the Pacific Division title slip through their fingers after their biggest rival pulled off an improbable victory.

Sacramento (55-27) could have clinched the division with a victory but continued to struggle, losing for the 10th time in 16 games. The Kings still had hope afterward, but the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers on a last-second shot by Kobe Bryant.

Sacramento fell to fourth place in the Western Conference and face the Dallas Mavericks in the opening round of the playoffs.

Sacramento never led after the second quarter but pulled within 93-91 on a layup by Mike Bibby with 49 seconds left. Adonal Foyle responded with a hook shot and Kings forward Chris Webber missed a wide-open 3-pointer at the other end.

Mickael Pietrus sealed the win with a pair of free throws with 14.5 seconds left as the Warriors (37-45) ended the season by winning 12 of their final 17 games.

Peja Stojakovic scored 27 points and Bibby finished with 22 for Sacramento, which shot less than 40 percent (36-of-91) from the floor and was outrebounded 57-46.
