Peja Stojakovic and Brad Miller helped the Sacramento Kings exact a measure of revenge in their own building.
Stojakovic scored 23 points and Miller collected 12, nine rebounds and 10 assists as the Kings cruised to a 101-85 triumph over the Denver Nuggets.
A winner in just one of its first five games for the second straight season, Sacramento entered Friday's contest coming off a 107-91 loss in Denver on Wednesday.
However, Stojakovic left little doubt in this one, scoring 15 points in the opening quarter as the Kings built a 29-19 lead.
Normally one of the NBA's best offensive teams, Sacramento came in averaging just over 90 points per game. But coach Rick Adelman's bench trio of Kevin Martin, Jason Hart and Kenny Thomas provided a huge scoring lift in the first half.
The three players combined for 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting in the first 24 minutes for the Kings, who used a 25-8 run to bridge the first and second periods and owned a 61-44 advantage at halftime.
Martin finished with 14 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim chipped in with 12 and nine rebounds for Sacramento.
I doubt he will start but hes playing well, I could see him start a few games through out the season.Dodigago said:just back from a nap
