SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The league-leading Sacramento Kings can extend their home winning streak to five games on Tuesday when they host the Miami Heat, who continue a season-high six-game road trip at Arco Arena.

The Kings have won four straight games here since losing to the Dallas Mavericks on December 25. They are 19-2 at Arco Arena for the best home record in the NBA.

Sacramento opened a three-game homestand with a 117-106 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

Peja Stojakovic scored 33 points and Mike Bibby added 18 for the Kings, who have scored 100 points or more in five of their last six games.

Bobby Jackson had 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter and Brad Miller scored 14 before being ejected with seven minutes left for arguing with referee Marc Davis.

Miami has dropped the first two games of its longest road trip of the season after Saturday's 83-77 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Brian Grant collected 17 points and nine rebounds and Lamar Odom added 15 and 11 for the Heat, who have lost 16 of 20 road games this season, including nine of 10 against the Western Conference.

Miami was shorthanded without rookie Dwyane Wade, who is sidelined with a sprained wrist, and point guard Bimbo Coles sat out due to a strained quadriceps.

The Heat split two meetings with the Kings last season but have lost their last three visits to Arco Arena dating to December 10, 1999.
Bibby Alston
Christie Jones
Peja Butler
Miller Odom
Divac Grant

Prediction- Kings 110
Heat 90

we will get killed underneath with Divac and Miller playing together. Our best scorer also has a very tough matchup, being guarded by Christie. For us to even have a shot, Odom will have to use his versatility and score on miller

we were tied with 2-3 minutes left.. we could have beat the best team on their home court after being down 18. thats what id call a break of momentum.

Bibby with that terrible looking 3 pt shot. Odom showed a lot of heart coming back in after getting stitches and making a big shot.
