Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The new-look Sacramento Kings finally returned home, and Kenny Thomas introduced himself to the Arco Arena crowd. Thomas had 19 points and 10 rebounds off the bench as the Kings used a balanced attack for a 100-85 victory over the suddenly slumping Detroit Pistons. The Kings were playing their first home game since returning from a 2-4 road trip that began with the shocking trade of superstar Chris Webber to the Philadelphia 76ers and ended with three straight losses. One of three players acquired in the deal, Thomas was unfamiliar to Kings fans despite beginning his career in the Western Conference and averaging a double-double last season. "A lot of games we lost on the road but we were able to come home and get this one and it felt good," Thomas said. "Everybody made me feel at home. ... I just saw how they shared the ball and that me feel real comfortable and real good." After getting a lift to the arena from a high school buddy, Thomas began showcasing his game with 15 points in the second quarter,helping Sacramento to a 55-46 halftime lead. "Mike (Bibby) told me to shoot the ball so when I was open, I just started letting it go," he said. "I just got into a really good rhythm." Thomas was one of six players in double figures for the Kings, who never trailed despite playing without injured starters Brad Miller and Cuttino Mobley. Sacramento shot nearly 50 percent from the field and outscored Detroit in every quarter. "We came out today and rotated defensively and trusted each other," Kings guard Mike Bibby said. Bibby added 19 points and 11 assists and Brian Skinner - also acquired in the Webber trade - added 12 and 12 rebounds for the Kings, who turned back a pair of second-half surges by the Pistons. "It was rejuvenating to be out here playing tonight," said Skinner, who started his fourth straight game in place of Miller and took a taxi to the game. "I've been able to go in there and take care of what I need to." "Everybody who played gave us a lift, so it's just a great game to get this (five-game) homestand started," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. Rasheed Wallace had 19 points and 10 boards for the Pistons, who are headed home after a six-game trip of their own. It began well with three victories that ran their winning streak to eight games. But the defending NBA champions closed with setbacks at Phoenix, Seattle and Sacramento and are one loss shy of their longest slide of the season. "I wasn't pleased going 3-3 on this trip," Pistons forward Tayshaun Prince said. "Today we played like we were ready to go home before the game started, so that's all I have to say about today's game." The Pistons scored the first seven points of the second half to close to 55-53 before the Kings put together a 17-3 run featuring three hoops by Skinner. "Coach has put a lot of faith and trust in me," Skinner said. "It's a passing offense and it makes it a lot easier knowing that if you work hard and get open, you have an opportunity to get the ball and they have faith and trust in you to be able to score." Detroit kept coming, and a basket by Carlos Arroyo cut the deficit to 76-72 with 8:26 to play. Darius Songaila made a basket and Eddie House drilled a 3-pointer to start an 18-6 surge highlighted by three jumpers by Bibby. "Every time we made a run we just had some real bad decisions and some real bad shots and gave them life," Pistons coach Larry Brown said.
