SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 29 (Ticker) -- Although sharpshooter Peja Stojakovic was rusty in his return, the rest of the Sacramento Kings were locked in.

Mike Bibby scored 25 points and Brad Miller added 20 and nine assists as the Kings made 10-of-14 3-pointers in a 110-92 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.

Stojakovic missed the last three games with a sprained finger and showed the effects Tuesday, missing his first six shots until his 3-pointer in third quarter gave Sacramento a 74-57 lead. He finished 1-of-8 and scored a season-low five points.

"I felt good I was back," Stojakovic said. "The hand felt good. I was lucky I didn't get it hit. As the games progress, the hand will probably get better and my basketball shape will get back to where it used to be."

Bibby, who is averaging 26.6 points over his last five games, scored the game's first five points to set the tone. He later added nine straight points for the Kings and finished the first quarter with 16 on 6-of-6 shooting from the floor and 3-of-3 from the line.

"My shot felt good from the first shot I took," said Bibby, who sank 9-of-11 shots, including 4-of-5 from beyond the arc. "It hit nothing but net so I kept testing it to see if I was on fire. I didn't miss, so I kept shooting it."

"(Bibby) came out and shot the ball well," Charlotte guard Brevin Knight said. "We knew that was something he was capable of doing. They played a very good game tonight. We got down early and just couldn't get it done."

Bibby sat for most of the second quarter, when Sacramento expanded its lead to 59-46. But he scored nine points in the third period, kicking off a 32-15 surge over the final 10 minutes with a 3-pointer as the Kings took a 91-66 advantage into the fourth quarter.

One of the keys for Sacramento was slowing down ex-King Gerald Wallace, who was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday. Third in the league in field goal percentage, Wallace was limited to mostly perimeter shots and finished 5-of-15 from the floor.

"We didn't get going from the start and they got some easy shots," Wallace said. "As far as me and my teammates, we tried to get back in, but took some forced shots and turnovers, and you can't do that against a team like them at home. They did a great job tonight."

"It was just a solid game for us all the way around," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We wanted to eliminate their easy baskets and I thought we moved he ball really well the whole night."

Miller made his first five shots and finished 7-of-8 while rookie Francisco Garcia came off the bench to make all three of his attempts, including two from the arc, as the Kings (7-7) reached .500 for the first time this season.

"You wouldn't have thought (getting to .500) would be a goal of ours," Miller said. "With the way we started out, obviously it's nice to get there. We've got a tough one (Wednesday at Golden State) to stay there. We've got to build off of this."

Kareem Rush scored 15 points and Primoz Brezec added 13 and a season-high 12 rebounds for the Bobcats, who lost the opener of a four-game road trip despite recording 12 steals. Charlotte fell to 0-8 when scoring less than 100 points.
