Seven Sonics reach double figures in win over Kings

Oct 26, 2006 - 4:52 AM SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Seattle SuperSonics caught the Sacramento Kings at the right time - the second game of a back-to-back.

Rashard Lewis scored 16 points, leading seven players in double figures, as the Sonics posted a 103-88 victory over the Kings in a preseason matchup.

Luke Ridnour and Nick Collison added 15 points apiece and Damian Wilkins chipped in 14 for Seattle, which outscored Sacramento's bench, 51-23.

On Tuesday, the Kings suffered an 84-81 overtime setback to the New Orleans Hornets, and a day later they were outscored, 31-15, in the second quarter and, 25-16, in the third, allowing the Sonics to take a comfortable 78-59 lead into the closing period.

Kevin Martin scored 22 points, notching his second straight outing of at least 20, and point guard Ronny Price added 15 points but did not hand out an assist for Sacramento, which shot 43 percent (31-of-72).

Seattle center Robert Swift left the game in the first quarter after spraining his right knee. He is scheduled for an MRI on Thursday. Reserve guard Earl Watson, who had 12 points, departed in the fourth quarter after receiving an inadvertent elbow to the mouth from Martin.

Kings guard Mike Bibby missed his second straight exhibition game due to a right thumb injury. He will be out nearly three weeks.
