Stojakovic scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half and Mike Bibby had 22 as the Kings took a 3-1 lead in the first-round series against the Dallas Mavericks with a 94-92 victory.

One of the NBA's best offensive players during the regular season, Stojakovic was limited to 48 points on 17-of-41 shooting in the first three games of the series. His struggles continued in the first half of this one as he made just 1-of-11 shots.

The All-Star guard woke up after halftime, making 7-of-15 shots as the Kings took the lead for good and bounced back from a 25-point loss in Game 3.

Sacramento led by as many as eight late in the fourth quarter, but Dallas got within 94-92 with 33.3 seconds left on a pair of free throws by Dirk Nowitzki.

Bibby missed a jumper at the other end and Sacramento's Chris Webber grabbed the rebound but had his foot on the baseline, giving Dallas one last chance.

Steve Nash was unable to get the ball to Nowitzki, who made just one basket in the second half, and forced a tough fallaway jumper over Stojakovic that missed badly as time expired.

"I got something on the target, I just couldn't make it," Nash said. "It just wasn't the shot we wanted. There wasn't a lot of places to go at that point. There was a lot of plays that led up to that play that really caused our demise."

Webber finished with 17 points and nine rebounds and Doug Christie collected 13 and 15 for the Kings, who can end the series Thursday at Arco Arena.

"We did what we wanted to do," Webber said. "We wanted to come get a win. We've still got another game. It's not over."

Brad Miller grabbed 16 rebounds as Sacramento held a commanding 68-55 advantage on the glass in a game that featured 47 offensive boards.

"There was a huge discrepancy on the boards that really hurt us," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "We had been a good rebounding team throughout this series. Their size hurt us tonight."

Nowitzki had 21 points and 14 rebounds and Michael Finley scored 16 points for the Mavericks, who shot less than 35 percent (34-of-98) from the floor, including 4-of-21 from 3-point range.

Dallas was the best free-throw shooting team in the NBA during the regular season but made just 20-of-33 at the line.

"That was unfortunate," Nash said. "It's a frustrating way to lose a game. You can definitely point to that as a big reason why we lost. That was very uncharacteristic."
