Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Without their coach and star scorer, the Seattle SuperSonics found a way to a win. Rashard Lewis scored 24 points and Ronald Murray added a season-high 23 as the SuperSonics posted a 106-101 victory over the equally shorthanded Sacramento Kings. Seattle coach Nate McMillan was in North Carolina for his mother's funeral and leading scorer Ray Allen missed his second straight game with the flu. But the Sonics had enough at the end to fend off the Kings, who again played without injured top scorers Chris Webber and Peja Stojakovic. "You know, this is not my team. This game tonight was for Nate McMillan's family," Seattle acting coach Dwane Casey said. "I'm so proud the guys came out and competed. That's what I thought we lacked last night." Without McMillan and Allen on Monday, the Sonics lost at home to the San Antonio Spurs, 103-84. It was a different story in this one as Seattle got a win in the 250th straight sellout at Arco Arena. Murray scored nine points in the third quarter to help the Sonics take an 82-75 lead into the final period. "I know I had a bad game yesterday, but I didn't let that hold me down," said Murray, who shot 5-of-17 and had five turnovers in the Sonics' loss to San Antonio. "I told (my team) before the game I was going to have a better outing tonight than what I did last night. They believed in me, they put the ball in my hands and I tried to make something happen." Murray was held scoreless in the fourth, however, and Sacramento rallied to take a 95-94 lead on Darius Songaila's jumper with 4:24 left. But Seattle got a tough layup from Vladimir Radmanovic three minutes later to grab the lead for good, 98-97. That was followed by a short jumper in traffic by Lewis and Seattle made all six of its free throws in the final 30 seconds to seal it, snapping a four-game slide in Arco Arena. "Rashard did a great job," Casey said. "He brought the team together. He held them, he was their captain throughout the night. He did a great job of rallying the guys together and made sure they stayed together when things got a little frayed." Radmanovic, Antonio Daniels and Danny Fortson combined for 39 points to lead a strong effort by Seattle's bench. Their showing was made more important when starting center Jerome James was ejected in the third quarter. In a game that required a strong performance by role players on both teams, the Sonics' reserves outscored the Kings bench, 45-26. "You have to stop a team in order to win, especially in the fourth, and that's what we did." Radmanovic said. "I know Webber and Stojakovic aren't playing, but (Sacramento) is an NBA team. Everyone can play, so you have to find a way to stop these guys." Mike Bibby scored 25 points and Songaila added a career-high 19 in place of Webber, but the Kings failed to prevail on the day coach Rick Adelman had his option picked up for next season. "It was a disappointing loss," Adelman said. "The guys really played hard, they just made some mistakes down the stretch and it cost us the game." Sacramento was further limited down the stretch when star center Brad Miller fouled out with just under five minutes left. Miller, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, matched a season low with four points on 1-of-6 shooting. Bibby and Miller both picked up technicals in the third quarter, when the Sonics outscored the Kings, 32-26. "The only thing that was disappointing was we lost our composure in the third quarter," Adelman said. "You've got to stay in the game, and we can't have Brad (Miller) and Mike (Bibby) on the sideline in a game like this."
