    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mike Bibby and Brad Miller each scored 14 points to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 90-84 exhibition victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.

    The Clippers got as close as four points in the fourth quarter when Corey Maggette made two free throws with 9:19 to play. But Los Angeles faded in the final minutes, going more than five minutes without scoring.

    Maggette and Cuttino Mobley led the Clippers with 17 points each. Mobley scored 15 points on 6-for-6 shooting in the first quarter.

    Bibby scored 10 points in the first half to lead the Kings to a 53-43 lead.

    The Kings opened the second half with a 13-3 run to lead 66-46, and led by as many as 22 in the third before Los Angeles rallied.

    Francisco Garcia had 13 points for the Kings and Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 10. James Singleton added 11 points and 12 rebounds for Los Angeles.

    Clippers power forward Elton Brand sat out the second straight game with a bruised left thigh. Zeljko Rebraca started for Los Angeles but left the game in the first half with tendinitis in his left knee.
