Citing the need to "get off in a new direction," Kings managing general partner Gregg Lukenbill yesterday announced the firings of head coach Phil Johnson and assistant coach Frank Hamblen. Jerry Reynolds, Johnson's assistant coach for the past 1 1/2 years, will serve as interim head coach. The search for Johnson's replacement will begin immediately. "The air got cleared," Lukenbill said. "And, damn, it's going to get cleared more. " The Kings are off to a 14-32 start.

The law of percentages caught up with the 76ers last night as they lost a bad one, falling, 105-95, to the worst non-expansion team in the league. Not the law that says a team that has dropped 10 straight is due for a win. That may be true of the Kings, who had played strongly but without result for the past week. The law of percentages that got the Sixers was the one that says you can't shoot 42 percent from the field while the other guys are shooting 51 percent and still win, even if you're playing the worst team in history.

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.

The Sacramento Kings pulled out of a deal with the Indiana Pacers for Ron Artest last night after Artest's agent told the Kings that his player would have reported to the team but immediately would have requested a trade, according to sources close to the situation. The trade for Kings forward Peja Stojakovic apparently was a "done deal," pending league approval and physical exams. In fact, Stojakovic stayed at the team's hotel during last night's 109-103 loss to the 76ers. He went to the Wachovia Center after the game and was on the team bus that departed for New York and tonight's game against the Knicks.

The game was billed as White Chocolate vs. The Answer. By the end of the first quarter, Allen Iverson had asked: Any questions? Having said 24 hours earlier that he couldn't wait to play against Sacramento's rookie sensation, Jason Williams, Iverson blasted past everyone in his path, rained jumpers at will, and flashed his patented crossover dribble, finishing with a game-high 36 points and 10 assists to lead the 76ers to a 94-81 win over the...

FRESNO, CALIF. - Fall looked a lot like winter across Northern California on Monday as the first major storm of the season spawned at least one tornado, brought out snow plows on Interstate 80 and showered the rest of the parched region with much-needed rain. The tornado touched down 40 miles north of Sacramento. Only minor damage was reported when it hit at 3:15 p.m. near Yuba City. There were several other reports of funnel clouds north of Sacramento, but no others touched down, said National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Kurth.

The NBA's hottest team will be playing at home in Los Angeles - and it's the Clippers, not the Lakers. There's a Finals rematch in Miami, a holiday matinee in Brooklyn, Kobe vs. the Knicks, and the 20th anniversary of one of Michael Jordan's most memorable games in Chicago. Welcome to Christmas, NBA style. A five-game slate makes up the NBA's Christmas Day schedule, which this year comes with the additional bonus of not being the first day back after a lockout forced the cancellation of the opening portion of last season.

The Sacramento Kings, in last place in the NBA's Midwest Division, last night fired coach Phil Johnson and named assistant Jerry Reynolds their interim coach. Johnson, in his second stint as the Kings' coach, had guided the team to a 14-32 record this season. The Kings had lost five games in a row and six of their last eight before the all-star break. Johnson first became the Kings' coach before the start of the 1973-74 season. Fired midway through the 1977-78 season, he then served as an assistant with the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz.

Jason Kidd retired Monday from the NBA after 19 seasons, ending one of the greatest careers for a point guard in league history. Kidd won an NBA title and two Olympic gold medals, is second on the career list in assists and steals, and was a 10-time all-star. But he struggled in the playoffs for the New York Knicks and decided to walk away with two years and more than $6 million remaining on the deal he signed last summer. Kidd, 40, led the Nets to two NBA Finals in 2002-03 and helped the Dallas Mavericks win the 2011 title.

Already without their top scorer and a key defensive player, things didn't look good for the Denver Nuggets when their inspirational leader went down and their best scoring threat had stomach problems. But six of the 10 Nuggets who suited up last night scored in double figures and Denver beat Sacramento, 102-89, to beat out the Kings for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Backup center Brian Williams fueled the balanced attack with 13 fourth- quarter points, and the Nuggets earned the No. 8 seed in the West for the second year in a row. Denver will meet San Antonio on Friday to start a best- of-five series.

Unveiled in 2009, Drexel's Sacramento, Calif., campus was supposed to be the first of five new locations in growing U.S. cities that would help the university expand its reach. And it was supposed to be the first step in a larger plan to open a 5,000-student undergraduate campus on a large swath of land in nearby Placer County. That's what the late Drexel president Constantine "Taki" Papadakis envisioned. But no other centers have opened, and on Thursday, Drexel said it was pulling out of California after a "comprehensive evaluation" by its board of trustees.

SALT LAKE CITY - The inability to be consistent, something that has haunted the 76ers all season long, reared its ugly head again Monday night. One night after the lowest-scoring team in the NBA played with bounce in its stride, the sluggishness that has been a hallmark all season returned in an ugly 107-91 loss to the Utah Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena. The Sixers (27-43) shot the ball poorly and never led. They trailed by 19 at the end of the third quarter. Utah, which began the night 11/2 games out of the final Western Conference playoff spot, led by as many as 22 points in the fourth quarter.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -  When a road losing streak as long as the one endured by the 76ers is about to come to an end, usually strange happenings surround it. The game against Sacramento began with former King Spencer Hawes getting lustily booed, and ended with the light-scoring Sixers posting 117 points in a 117-103 victory, thus ending their 15-game road skid and improving to 27-42. The demonstrative crowd took out their anger on Hawes for his comments about the organization's impending move to Seattle.

LeBron James stretched his arm above the rim, soaring high on a shaky knee and turning his steal into a finishing dunk as Carmelo Anthony hung his head near midcourt. The Heat took the Knicks' best shot, but it wasn't good enough to beat the defending champs. Nothing is right now. James had 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists, and Miami tied a franchise record with its 14th straight victory, rallying for a 99-93 win at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. It avenged a pair of 20-point losses to the Atlantic Division leaders early this season.

BOSTON - Six weeks ago, Tyreke Evans was the go-to guy on a young Sacramento Kings team. Six weeks ago, as his coach put it, he was "a 20-point" per-game player. Six weeks ago, the swingman was finally getting into a rhythm at his new position. Six weeks ago, Evans suffered a left knee injury. Just as his game finally began to click in a way it hadn't since 2009, just when he began to understand his role, his left knee flared up. Evans returned to the Kings lineup at the beginning of this month but the injury has lingered, and without his usual burst Evans' game hasn't been as efficient.

Nearly five years after the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City, the NBA is one step closer to returning to Seattle, while the Kings are on the verge of leaving Sacramento. All that appears to stand in the way now is approval by NBA owners. The Maloof family has agreed to sell the Kings to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen, the league confirmed in a statement Monday morning. The deal is still pending a vote by the NBA board of governors. The Kings franchise began with the Rochester Royals in 1945, and made stops in Cincinnati, Kansas City and Omaha before arriving Sacramento.
