Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- By the time Chris Webber called out Vin Baker, the least-used backups of the Sacramento Kings had no problem laying waste to the lifeless Seattle SuperSonics.

Peja Stojakovic matched a season high with 29 points and Webber added 24 and 14 rebounds before a fourth-quarter skirmish with Baker cleared the way for rookie Hedo Turkoglu to further embarrass the struggling SuperSonics in a 125-101 rout.

Perhaps Seattle center Patrick Ewing knew what he was doing when he boiled over in frustration and earned an ejection for arguing with officials with 2:46 remaining in the third quarter and the Sonics trailing, 83-70.

"We didn't play a particularly good game tonight," Ewing said. "We cut their lead to one point at halftime and we didn't come out with the right frame of mind in the second half and they blew the game open."

Webber dunked and Bobby Jackson converted a three-point play as Sacramento opened a 94-77 lead with 10:55 to play. Things got much uglier for the Sonics thereafter.

Turkoglu, a first-round pick who had managed no more than six points in any of his previous eight games, looked like an All-Star against a Seattle team disinterested in competing or protecting its pride.

The 6-8 forward from Turkey needed just 17 minutes to collect 17 points and 12 rebounds -- both season highs -- hitting 5-of-7 shots and 7-of-8 free throws.

"It was lots of fun," Turkoglu said. "I was happy that we won and I played good. I always try to do my best. I showed everybody that and I get more time. I try to play every time like this. My teammates helped me out a lot and they make me more comfortable."

The Kings established a season-high total and it became apparent that their offensive output was weighing heavily on the Sonics' psyches when the normally sedate Baker chose to exchange words, shoves and meaningful glances with the fiery Webber.

Referees interceded before any punches were thrown but Webber immediately indicated that he would be more than happy to meet Baker in the tunnels that adjoin the locker rooms at Arco Arena for a private showdown.

"I don't know what (Baker) did, Mr. Tough Guy," Webber said. "I don't know how it started. It wasn't that physical. He's kind of soft. So it isn't that physical when you play against him. He just wanted to be tough for a minute and I've been nice for 2 1/2 years and on good behavior. He wanted to get tough, so I had to remind him what time it is."

"I don't know what went on between (Baker) and Webber," Seattle foward Ruben Patterson said. "But I heard they had some beef for the past few years."

Gary Payton, whose recent blow-ups with Seattle coach Paul Westphal have been well-chronicled, scored 26 points. The Sonics did not respond well to back-to-back games after an easy 98-81 victory against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.

Patterson and Ewing scored 14 points, Baker had 12 and Brent Barry added 10 for Seattle, which showed considerable fight in the first half, shaving a 16-point deficit to 54-53 at the half.

"I was really pleased with the third quarter," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said after watching his team outscore the Sonics, 35-24, in the period. "We re-established ourselves and that was good because we didn't let them take control. We took control."

"I'm not sure what the problem is right now," Patterson said. "I'd like to know. We're struggling right now but we need to get over the hump. I ain't going to point no fingers and I'm not going to come out and say it, but we just need to get together and start playing some `D.'"

Webber and Stojakovic combined to make a startling 23-of-35 shots and Jason Williams had 11 points and 10 assists for the Kings, who shot 52 percent (50-of-96) and held a 51-38 edge on the boards.

Doug Christie scored 14 points and Vlade Divac added 12 for Sacramento, which outscored Seattle, 28-12, on the break and never trailed.

After Stojakovic and Webber made sure the Sonics would not repeat their late first-half run, Turkoglu went to work. A dunk, two jumpers and a free throw had the 17,317 fans at Arco Arena cheering for more.

Six more free throws, a 20-footer and a thunderous dunk made it 121-97 with just over a minute to play and drew non-stop laughter from the Kings regulars, who were all comfortably resting on the bench.

"It was really important for him to really feel confident out there and play his game," Divac said. "He's a very talented guy and hopefully, he'll play more. He's a young guy trying to make it in the NBA. He's rebounding well, passing well and is always around the ball."
