=== Sacramento Kings Team Report – February 1 ===

(Sports Network) – The Sacramento Kings welcome the Seattle SuperSonics on
Tuesday to ARCO Arena. It will be the second meeting of the season between the
clubs. On November 10th, Seattle crushed Sacramento, 108-78, at KeyArena. With
the victory, the Sonics snapped a two-game series losing streak.

Overall, the Kings have won six of eight and seven of the last 11 contests in
this series. The Sonics have lost four in a row and seven of their last eight
at Sacramento.

Sacramento has won two straight contests. On Sunday, Brad Miller scored 27
points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Kings to a 94-84 victory over the
Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center. Cuttino Mobley added 23 and Mike
Bibby had 21 points and eight assists for the Kings, who have won nine of
their last 11 games overall.

On the injury front, the Kings played Minnesota without forwards Peja
Stojakovic (back) and Chris Webber (knee). Both players are questionable for
Tuesday’s contest.

Sacramento is 11-1 in Tuesday games and is 21-3 when it allows under 100
points this season. The Kings are an impressive 18-5 as the host this season.
Sacramento has won seven of its last eight at ARCO Arena.

Miller has scored in double-digits in seven straight games and has recorded
four double-doubles in that span. The All-Star center is averaging 14.9 points
and 9.2 rebounds this season. He has 12 double-doubles and has scored 20 or
more points nine times.

The Kings have a busy week ahead of them. On Wednesday, Sacramento will visit
the Golden State Warriors. The Kings are 0-1 against Golden State, which beat
Sacramento, 98-94, on December 26th at ARCO Arena.
