Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- It took Peja Stojakovic, Doug Christie and the Sacramento Kings about three minutes to get going. Then the Seattle SuperSonics got in serious trouble. Stojakovic outscored the Sonics in the first quarter and Christie tied an Arco Arena record with nine assists in the period as the Kings opened a huge lead and cruised to a 110-81 rout. Stojakovic scored 13 of 24 points and Christie added nine of his career high-tying 13 assists in the opening 12 minutes as Sacramento jumped out to a 34-12 lead. The Sonics recorded the game's first four points before the Kings countered with a 28-5 run, taking the lead for good, 5-4, on a layup by Mike Bibby with 8:51 left in the period. "That's a very good team out there," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "This is a team contending for a championship. They were very sharp, very confident and they have a lot of weapons. I think once they get (All-Star forward Chris) Webber back, they definitely are the team - along with the Lakers - to beat." The Kings shot 76 percent in the first quarter (16-of-21), connecting on 15 of their final 16 attempts while limiting the Sonics to 17 percent (4-of-23). "When we're shooting the ball and we're passing the ball, it's really hard to guard us," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "I think we also had a good idea of how they were going to defend us and we got a lot of good looks because we were aware of that." Sacramento held a 60-43 lead at the break before taking their biggest advantage, 91-58, at the end of the third quarter. "What I liked about it was that we came out at the start of the game and we jumped on them and then came out in the third quarter and jumped on them again," Adelman said. "It was a good sign." Bibby scored 18 points and Keon Clark had 18, 14 rebounds and six blocks for the Kings, who shot a season-high 60 percent (46-of-77) and held the Sonics to 35 percent (31-of-88). They improved to 2-0 on their season-high seven-game homestand. "It all comes down to the energy we come out with," Clark said. "Energy is on the defensive end. Because we played such good defense, that's why we were able to run as we did in the first half. You saw what the result was, and hopefully we'll continue throughout the homestand." Sacramento was sharp from the arc, nailing 8-of-15 3-pointers while Seattle connected on just 2-of-11. All five Kings' starters and Hedo Turkoglu reached double figures, while Jimmy Jackson and Bobby Jackson added eight points apiece. Bobby Jackson, who missed the previous 21 games with a broken left hand, receieved a standing ovation when he entered with Sacramento ahead, 25-9. "It felt good to get out there and play," Jackson said. "I wish I could have gotten a couple more minutes at the end of the game, but the coach wanted to make sure I didn't get hurt. I still have a long way to go before I'm back to 110 percent." "I think he got a little winded in the second half," Adelman said. "It's just good to have him in the game. He gives us so much energy and picks up the play when he's in the game." Gary Payton paced Seattle with 20 points but shot just 7-of-18 as the Sonics suffered their fifth straight loss and 14th in 19 games. "You have to deal with not playing well," Payton said. "Right now, this is what we have and this is what we have to deal with. We're not playing the way we're supposed to play and teams are exploiting us."
