Martin scores 48 as Kings edge Grizzlies in OT 2009-11-03SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Paul Westphal has been involved in hundreds of wins in the NBA as a coach and a player. That didn't take away from his excitement after his first with the Sacramento Kings.

Kevin Martin scored 48 points and Beno Udrih hit a game-tying layup in the closing seconds of regulation to give the Kings a 127-116 overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in their home opener Monday night.

"That was a special experience for our team," Westphal said. "It's a night I'll never forget."

As ecstatic as Westphal was with his first win with the Kings, Allen Iverson was as upset after his first game with the Grizzlies. After missing the first three games while recovering from a partial right hamstring tear, Iverson played only briefly as a reserve, scoring 11 points in less than 18 minutes.
