11.6.07 Game Thread: Sonics vs. Kings

Tonight is Sacramento's home opener after 3 tough road games to start the season.

Kevin Pelton's Insider Preview.

In another article, Kevin comments on the Sonics pace:

Through the first partial week of the 2007-08 campaign, the Sonics are the NBA's fastest team, averaging 104.3 possessions per game. While the pace is partially explained by facing up-tempo opponents Denver and Phoenix, the Sonics were able to run right with the Suns, scoring 21 fast-break points to Phoenix's 22.

No Ron Artest (still suspended). No Mike Bibby (torn thumb tendon). No Spencer Hawes (knee scoped in pre-season).

The key will be stopping Kevin Martin.
