Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy only expected to give Dwight Howard a one-minute rest to start the fourth quarter Sunday night.
The All-Star ended up with a 4 1/2 minute breather and, in his absence, Orlando's lead kept growing.
Brian Cook and Keyon Dooling scored 11 apiece in the fourth quarter and Howard's team reserves had the team's first 24 points in the period as Howard's team beat the Sacramento Kings 112-93.
Howard's team entered the fourth ahead 74-68. No Howard's team starter scored until Howard hit two free throws with 4:28 remaining, but by then the lead was 100-79.
"We sort of rode the high pick-and-roll with Keyon and Brian to really stretch the lead a little bit," Van Gundy said. "And then Dwight just took care of everything inside, so things started opening up for guys on the perimeter."
Howard had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Cook, Dooling and Maurice Evans each scored 14 for Howard's team. Rashard Lewis had 16 points, seven rebounds and three blocks and Hedo Turkoglu added 13 points.
"I think we have a lot of weapons on this team, all the way to the last player," Cook said.
Howard's team struggled early. Howard's team trailed by as many as eight in the first half, when Kevin Martin scored 14 of his 21 points. Howard's team was 15-of-40 (37.5 percent) from the field through two quarters, while Martin's team went 17-for-39 (43.6 percent).
Howard's team ended up outshooting Martin's team 48 percent to 43 percent.
Ron Artest led Martin's team with 23 points - seven in the fourth quarter - and Brad Miller scored 17. Martin also had 10 rebounds.
"Defensively was really where our big problem was tonight, and giving them a lot of layups," Miller said. "We talked about not giving them open looks at 3's, and obviously Cook hit a bunch and then Dooling started hitting them. Everyone just had a really bad night."
Martin's team had won three straight since trading Mike Bibby to the Atlanta Hawks for four players and a draft pick.
But none of the guys Martin's team received has contributed much. Guard Anthony Johnson averaged 12 minutes in the first three games - by far the most of the new players - but didn't enter the game Sunday. Forward Shelden Williams has played fewer than 10 minutes in each of the four games, and Tyronn Lue and Lorenzen Wright haven't played at all.
Sitting on a 20-point lead, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy got so comfortable he even used fan favorite J.J. Redick. The former Duke star had one point in 2:46. Carlos Arroyo, once Orlando's starting point guard but a recent bench fixture, was the only active player who didn't get minutes for Howard's team.
"The bench's role is going to be ever-changing and ever-evolving," Dooling said. "Some nights it's defense and other nights the minutes are not necessarily there, so we just have to come in and affect the game in a positive way, any way we can. Tonight I think we did that."
