SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- This time, the fans in Arco Arena had everything to shout about.
With the league's most potent offense in devastating form, Peja Stojakovic scored 22 points and Jason Williams had 18 as the Sacramento Kings evened their first-round playoff series with a 116-90 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night in Game 2.
Meanwhile, in Minneapolis, Terry Porter is getting his chances to gloat.
The 38-year-old point guard has played a major role in both of the San Antonio Spurs' playoff victories over Minnesota, where he played from 1995-98. They'll meet again Saturday in a game that could conclude the five-game series.
In Game 1, Porter hit a 19-footer, giving the Spurs a one-point lead with less than a minute remaining.
In Game 2, he helped build a 50-36 halftime lead to 68-40 by hitting a 3-pointer, turning a steal into two free throws and passing for two assists. He finished with 13 points and four assists, while the Wolves' Terrell Brandon was limited to seven points and two assists.
Getting even with the Wolves, he said, has nothing to do with his performance.
"Winning a title has always been the only thing I'm concerned with," said Porter, in his 16th season in the NBA.
The Wolves signed Porter and Sam Mitchell in 1995 to help tutor young stars Stephon Marbury and Kevin Garnett, who had only one season of college experience combined.
