GAME RECAP

Mitch Richmond scored 18 of his 24 points in the second and third quarters as the Sacramento Kings notched their longest home winning streak in nearly nine years with a surprising 111-92 rout of the Seattle SuperSonics.

The Kings, coming off an 0-5 eastern road trip, won their seventh straight game at ARCO Arena for their longest home winning streak since March 25th-April 23rd, 1989.

"Home sweet home, we just feel comfortable now," Kings coach Eddie Jordan said. "We have so much confidence here at home and it showed."

The victory was Sacramento's first in three games against Seattle this season and second in the last 11 meetings overall. The Sonics went down to their worst defeat of the season, surpassing a 95-78 loss at Washington on December 2nd.

"I'm not gonna blame it on us as much as Sacramento kicked our (butt)," Sonics coach George Karl said. "They did what they had to do against us, they did it very well."

Vin Baker had 20 points for Seattle, which has lost four of its last five road games. The Sonics (33-10), owners of the league's best record, became the last team to reach double digits in defeats and suffered their first divisional loss, dropping to 10-1 against the Pacific Division.

"Our transition defense was bad tonight. We didn't shoot the ball well," Baker said. "We missed some good shots, nothing went right for us tonight."

Gary Payton was limited to 12 points and six assists and may have been one of many Sonics who were looking ahead to Wednesday's showdown against Midwest Division-leading Utah.

Olden Polynice contributed 17 points off the bench and was one of seven Kings in double figures. Sacramento shot 50 percent (45-of-90) from the field while holding Seattle to 38 percent (37-of-98).

"We did a lot of good things tonight. I think a lot of people contributed, we had great plays off the bench," Richmond said. "We were defending some of their guys really well. We were able to get the ball out of Gary Payton's hands and force other people to take their shots."

Sonics starters Detlef Schrempf and Hersey Hawkins combined to go just 2-of-18 from the field for 10 points. Seattle also made just 13-of-22 free throws, while Sacramento was 18-of-21 from the line.

"It was a combination of a lot of things. They played well, but we didn't help the cause," Schrempf said. "We couldn't make layups, we couldn't make anything."

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf chipped in 13 points and rookie Michael Stewart had 12, nine rebounds and five blocks for the Kings, who improved to 15-7 at home this season.

Sacramento was in control from the start, opening the contest with a 12-4 run. Corliss Williamson scored half of his 12 points in the first quarter and Stewart also had six, helping the Kings to a 26-16 lead.

"To be able to go against the best team in the NBA after a tough road trip and get the win in front of the home town, that's just a great feeling," Williamson said. "Tonight I think we really caught them a little off guard with the way that we were playing on the defensive end."

Seattle trimmed the deficit under double digits midway through the second period, but Richmond scored 10 points in the quarter as Sacramento increased the advantage to 54-40 at halftime.

"Our defense was terrific in the first half, we got out and ran," Jordan said. "Mitch is stepping it up to be a big-time leader, and that's the difference. Everyone who played for us tonight played well."

Richmond drained back-to-back three-pointers to extend the lead to 78-51 with just over three minutes to go in the third quarter and Seattle did not threaten the rest of the way.

It got even worse for the Sonics early in the final period when guard Dale Ellis, who shot 3-of-11 from the floor, was ejected for arguing with officials.

"We shot the ball unbelievably poorly. I don't know if we could even fathom that we could shoot the ball that bad," Karl said. "We got outworked, outhit, outrebounded, outshot, outpassed, outhustled, outcoached, you name it. We didn't win anything tonight."

Sam Perkins had 16 points and eight rebounds for Seattle, which suffered a 107-98 loss to the lowly Mavericks in its last road outing on Tuesday.

Terry Dehere had 11 points and eight assists and Billy Owens added 10 points and nine rebounds to help Sacramento to a 54-46 edge on the glass.
