The Sacramento Kings were missing two key players, but it didn't matter this time. Peja Stojakovic scored 17 points and Chris Webber had 14 rebounds as the Kings opened a season of great expectations with a 94-67 victory over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers last night. Gerald Wallace scored 15 points and Damon Jones had 18 in his debut for the defending Pacific Division champions, who unveiled the first banner for team success ever hung at Arco Arena. Sacramento went a league-best 61-21 last season, winning 36 home games.

As old times pass and the new year approaches, along with resolutions, remember Allen Iverson. Remember Aaron McKie. Remember the 76ers' gut-wrenching performance last night against the Sacramento Kings. It's the right thing to do. Playing spectacularly, with the kind of star-quality effort reserved for players of his stature, Iverson erupted for a game-high 46 points on national television. That, combined with a sensational 19-point, 14-assist, 10-rebound performance by McKie lifted the Sixers to a thrilling 107-104 overtime win over Sacramento at Arco Arena.

Los Angeles Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal, the NBA's third-leading scorer and fourth-leading rebounder, will miss at least one game with a sprained right knee. O'Neal might not play tomorrow night when the Lakers face the defending champion Chicago Bulls for the second and final time in the regular season. "Shaq had an MRI done this morning that revealed a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament," Lakers spokesman John Black said yesterday. "He definitely won't play [tonight]

Carlos Rogers, the Toronto Raptors forward who is considering donating a kidney to his sister, joined her yesterday after she slipped into critical condition at a Detroit hospital. Rene Rogers, 29, was put on dialysis after her one good kidney started to fail. Henry Ford Hospital spokeswoman Kelly Brady said she is not currently strong enough for a transplant. She has a severe infection that leaves her on dialysis, hospital officials said. Carlos Rogers and a family friend, Henrietta McFadden, gave a statement to reporters at the hospital but took no questions.

Toronto Raptors forward Carlos Rogers may have to choose between basketball and his sister, who is in dire need of a kidney transplant. His choice is obvious. "I can't have my sister die," Rogers said. "This is something I'm going to have to discuss with Isiah [Thomas, the Raptors' general manager]. " Rogers says he is the only member of his family with a kidney compatible for transplant to his 29-year-old sister, Rene. The 25-year-old forward clearly would be risking his career, although it is not yet known if he would have to give up basketball.

At least Charles Barkley was able to limp off the court. Tyus Edney wasn't so lucky. Injuries to both players, along with a rare ejection of Hakeem Olajuwon, marked the Houston Rockets' 89-80 win last night over the visiting Sacramento Kings. Barkley strained his right ankle late in the third quarter. He will miss tonight's game in Dallas and might miss Sunday's home game against Chicago. Edney temporarily lost feeling in his arms and legs when he was struck in the back of the head by Houston's Othella Harrington's knee with 1 minute, 57 seconds left in the first quarter.

Previously without direction, the 76ers appeared to be on course in Monday night's 104-93 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The players steering the way were the team's two oldest: point guard Allen Iverson, 34, and reserve power forward Elton Brand, 30. Iverson and Brand combined for 44 points and 13 rebounds. The game was Iverson's first after he missed four because of an arthritic left knee. Brand, coming off the bench for the sixth time this season, scored 25 points in 29 minutes, 56 seconds.

Tim Perry had this funny thing he liked to do. Every year when playoff time came around and the Phoenix Suns were getting ready for the most important games of the season, he would make a few phone calls. He would call Lionel Simmons of the Sacramento Kings, the former La Salle forward against whom he played one season in college and in countless summer games. And he would call Duane Causwell, also of Sacramento, who was his roommate at Temple. "Hey, how are you doing?" Perry would say innocently.

Before the game, Allen Iverson vowed to help end Denver's league-worst losing streak in Sacramento. After taking care of that key matter, A.I. promised to appeal what he considers the most absurd technical of his career. Iverson had 24 points, seven assists, six rebounds and four steals to spoil Ron Artest's return to the Kings' lineup, and the visiting Nuggets snapped a 20-game losing streak in Arco Arena with a 113-101 victory yesterday. Iverson was called for three fouls and a technical during a crazy, 17-second span midway through the first quarter.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - If you're a 76ers fan, consider putting down this newspaper. Because this is a story about Tyreke Evans, who's given hope and energy to the previously floundering Sacramento Kings. Because this is a story about a Philly kid, a graduate of American Christian Academy in Delaware County, whose ball-on-a-string skills and beyond-explosive first step have turned the Kings from who-really-cares into gotta-check-them-out. If you're a Sixers fan, consider putting down this newspaper because it might be painful knowing Sacramento now has the thing - that thing - which your team can't seem to find: an identity.

In the NBA, rest is elusive. There is always a game, a flight, a practice, a shoot-around. So when a team can find an opportunity to squeeze in a few minutes of rest for its starters - as the 76ers did during last night's 112-110 win over the Sacramento Kings - it grabs it like it's the last water bottle on the shelf. Last night, that is what Sixers coach Tony DiLeo did. He played no one more than 35 minutes. On the front end of a back-to-back situation - the Sixers play the Portland Trail Blazers tonight - and in the final days of a five-game Western swing, they might have blown out the Kings last night, but instead they slowed to a respectable victory.

Sometimes, the key to success in the NBA is fitting in. Kenny Thomas seemed to be an ill fit in coach Jim O'Brien's system with the 76ers, and Brian Skinner didn't fit in at all. Now, however, the two players seem to be ideal fits for the Sacramento Kings, and they have flourished since the six-player trade on Feb. 23 that put Chris Webber in a Sixers uniform. "It's like I went to Palm Springs," Skinner said last night before the Kings faced the Sixers at Arco Arena. Asked if he was happy in Sacramento, Thomas quickly replied: "Yes, I am. " "It's the way we pass the ball, the way we play," he said.

A night that started with an emotional standing ovation for the 76ers' Chris Webber ended with loud cheers for the Sacramento Kings - and for the futility of the ex-King who couldn't buy a basket after the first quarter. In his much-anticipated return to California, Webber managed to make only four of his last 21 shots from the field while being upstaged by two of the players sent to the Kings in the trade that brought him to Philadelphia. Kenny Thomas and Brian Skinner were the ex-Sixers who contributed in a big way to the Kings' 118-109 victory last night in front of a sellout crowd at Arco Arena.

Chris Webber may be happier the way his return to Sacramento is going to work out - play the Kings on the second game of a back-to-back situation, then leave town after the game. Or maybe not. The 76ers forward didn't really give reporters much of a chance to check out his emotions regarding tonight's game against the Kings, his team for 6 1/2 seasons before his trade on Feb. 23, because he was preparing with his new team to play the Los Angeles Lakers last night. He indicated that he will be able to keep his emotions under control because he has been in situations before where he played against his old team in his former city of employment.

They were so close. Two minutes close. Keep-this-sweet-streak-alive close. But the 76ers fell two minutes shy of a huge win over the Sacramento Kings last night, and instead had to settle for the satisfaction that, in adverse conditions with yet another injury, they came close - 107-99 close. Although they had a 95-94 lead with about three minutes to play, the Sixers made crucial errors down the stretch. A couple of turnovers, a couple of missed free throws, and the Kings had the game, improving their stellar record to 42-19.
