SEATTLE -- Rashard Lewis scored 16 points and Luke Ridnour added 15 points and eight assists as the Seattle SuperSonics won their final home preseason game, 103-88 over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

The Sonics had seven players finish in double figures, with reserve Nick Collison scoring 15 points.

Kevin Martin led the Kings with 22 points and Ronnie Price added 15.

The Sonics lost center Robert Swift only 1:17 into the game with a sprained right knee when he went out of bounds awkwardly in front of Seattle's bench. He was taken immediately to the locker room and did not return. The team said Swift would have an MRI on Thursday.

Coach Bob Hill announced this week that the 7-foot-1 Swift, a three-year veteran, would be the Sonics' opening night center. Swift started 20 games last season.

With Swift out, the Sonics started Johan Petro at center in the second half.

After leading 53-43 at halftime, the Sonics broke the game open in the third quarter, with Lewis leading the way with 10 points, including two 3-pointers in the first 1:59 that put his team ahead 61-43. Ridnour had seven points and six assists in the third quarter.

Seattle led 78-59 going into the fourth. Sacramento got within 86-78 with 6:41 left.

A crowd of 11,887 was on hand at the Key Arena on Wednesday, a day after NBA owners unanimously approved the sale of the franchise to a group headed by Oklahoma City businessman Clay Bennett. Hill said before the game that he expects Bennett to be at the season opener against Portland in Seattle next Wednesday night.
