SACRAMENTO, April 19 (UPI) -- Kenny Thomas scored 17 points and had 18 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings ended their regular season with a 111-105 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics.
The Kings, 44-38, advance to the playoffs but their first-round opponent won't be determined until the after the Los Angeles Lakers' game Wednesday. Seattle is 34-47 with one game to play.
Bonzi Wells hit a pair of free throws with 4:03 left Tuesday to break a 101-101 tie and put the Kings ahead for good. But it wasn't until Thomas stole the ball and jammed to complete a breakaway for a 108-102 lead with 1:59 to go that Sacramento had things in control.
Wells scored 23 points and Mike Bibby 21 to pace Sacramento.
