SACRAMENTO -- A night after being blown out by 28 points, the Sacramento Kings were happy to get a win -- no matter how ugly it looked.
Kevin Martin scored 32 points and had eight rebounds to help the Kings rebound for a 106-100 victory over the struggling Toronto Raptors. Ron Artest had 19 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals for the Kings, who won for the third time in four games despite 22 turnovers that led to 22 Toronto points.
"It wasn't textbook, but the guys came up with a victory," Kings coach Reggie Theus said. "We did what we had to do down the stretch."
Scoreless through three quarters, Carlos Delfino hit a 3-pointer and then made two free throws to pull Toronto within one point with 2:59 remaining.
Never miss a local story.
The Kings, who lost to Phoenix 127-99 on Saturday, went on a 6-0 run. Artest made a tough fallaway jumper, Martin connected on a corner jumper, and Brad Miller converted two free throws to put Sacramento ahead 98-91 with 1:35 left.
Two jumpers by Jason Kapono brought the Raptors to within three points twice in the final 23 seconds, but Martin made three free throws and Artest made a layup off an inbounds pass with 10.9 seconds left to put the Kings ahead 104-98.
Mikki Moore had 17 points and seven rebounds for the Kings. Beno Udrih had 15 points and seven assists, and Miller had 14 points and 11 rebounds.
The Raptors played their ninth game in a row without All-Star forward Chris Bosh, the team's leading scorer and rebounder who's out with a sore right knee. Toronto is 2-7 during the stretch without Bosh and 4-10 overall this season without him.
"He is an All-Star, their best player, so that had a lot to do with the win," Artest said, adding he had forgotten the Kings' 25-point loss in Toronto when Bosh scored 31 points.
The turnovers were prevalent all game for the Kings, who had 15 by halftime, many of them unforced. However, capitalizing on Toronto's small lineup at times, the Kings had a 50-35 rebounding edge.
"It was a bad night there. That's way too many turnovers," said Udrih, who had six. "So the rebounding really helped us a lot."
Martin ignited the Kings early in the third quarter with two 3-pointers during a 10-0 run. He scored 13 points in the third to help Sacramento take a 75-73 lead into the final period.
