The 2001-02 NBA season was the Kings' 53rd season in the National Basketball Association, and 17th season in Sacramento.[1] During the offseason, the Kings acquired Mike Bibby from the Vancouver Grizzlies,[2] and second-year guard Mateen Cleaves from the Detroit Pistons. Despite Chris Webber missing the first 20 games due to an ankle injury, the Kings posted a 12-game winning streak between December and January, as they held a 37-12 record before the All-Star break. The team won eleven straight games near the end of the season, finishing with a 61-21 record (.744 winning percentage), the best record in the league, while winning their division for the first time since 1979, when the team was in Kansas City. The Kings also made the Western Conference finals for the first time since 1981 (also as the Kansas City Kings). Webber and Peja Stojakovi? were both selected for the 2002 NBA All-Star Game.

In the playoffs, the Kings defeated the Utah Jazz three games to one in the first round, and the Dallas Mavericks four games to one in the semifinals. In their first trip to the Western Conference Finals, they would take a 3-2 series lead over the 3rd-seeded Los Angeles Lakers, but went on to lose the final two games in one of the most controversial playoff series in NBA history.
