GAME RECAP

Gary Payton and Hersey Hawkins each scored 21 points and keyed pivotal spurts as the Seattle SuperSonics extended their home winning streak to nine games with a 111-98 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Payton scored five points in a 18-1 first-half run that gave the SuperSonics the lead for good. After the Trail Blazers cut the deficit to two points late in the third quarter, Hawkins scored six of his season-high points in an 8-2 burst.

"I just had a good night," said Hawkins, who was 8-of-14 from the field. "I came out in the first quarter in a good rhythm and it pretty much continued the whole game."

Vin Baker had 20 points and a season-high 17 rebounds and Dale Ellis added a season-high 19 points off the bench for Seattle, which has not lost at home since its opener against Dallas.

"That was the biggest key for us, coming out and rebounding the basketball," Baker said. "(Portland) is an excellent basketball team and goes to the basket well, so we had to hit the boards. And we felt like if we got the boards with them, we would have a great opportunity to win the game."

Isaiah Rider scored 15 of his 21 points on three-pointers for Portland, which had a three-game winning streak snapped. The Blazers have lost five straight in Seattle and 15 of their last 19 against the Sonics. The Blazers had been 7-2 on the road.

"That's the measure and mark of a good team, to be able to beat the other good teams in this league," Hawkins said. "For some reason, we think to take our game to another level. The concentration would be a lot stronger. We seem to focus a lot tougher when we are playing against the upper-echelon teams."

A dunk by Stacey Augmon gave Portland its last lead at 20-19 with 4:38 left in the first quarter before Seattle took control. Detlef Schrempf made two free throws and Baker one before a layup by Payton gave Seattle a 24-20 lead with 3:18 remaining.

Schrempf and Ellis made jumpers and Payton had a free throw and another layup, making it 31-20 with 1:07 left. A foul shot by Portland's Rasheed Wallace ended the spurt, but a three-pointer by Sam Perkins closed the quarter and extended the advantage to 34-21.

A three-pointer by Ellis opened the second quarter and closed the run with 11:43 to go. Rookie Kelvin Cato's layup stopped a field goal drought of 5:10 for the Blazers, who shortly began a charge of their own.

Another three-pointer by Perkins, who scored 10 points, gave the Sonics their largest lead at 40-23 with 11:04 left. But Rider scored eight points, including two three-pointers, and Cato had six as the Blazers scored 27 of the next 39 points.

A layup by rookie Alvin Williams cut the deficit to 52-50 with 3:13 to go in the first half. But Schrempf scored five points in a 10-2 spurt that gave Seattle a 62-52 halftime lead.

"They just came out in the first half and killed us," Blazers guard Kenny Anderson said. "That's unusual for our team. They just outplayed us on the boards and I think that was the turning point."

Two free throws by Gary Trent wrapped around a technical foul shot by Rider had Portland within 77-75 with 2:23 to play in the third quarter before Hawkins took over. He sank a 20-footer and two free throws around a hook by Perkins, then made a layup with two seconds left for an 85-77 advantage.

"I was glad to have it going when Gary and Vin got into foul trouble," Hawkins said. "I was able to pick it up a little so we could hold onto the lead while they were out of the game."

A slam by Wallace pulled Portland within 90-85 with 8:53 to go. But Ellis sank two free throws, Payton had a layup and fed Ellis for a three-pointer and a 97-85 advantage with 7:18 left. Ellis scored 12 points in the fourth quarter as the Blazers got no closer than seven points.

Schrempf collected 16 points, nine rebounds and five assists and Payton added eight assists for the Sonics, who shot 45 percent (38-of-84) from the field and held a 46-41 rebounding advantage. Seattle committed just 13 turnovers.

"I really think there was a focus there, one that we haven't had most of the year," Sonics coach George Karl said. "Vin was fantastic. But I think (center Jim) McIlvaine did a good job taking up space and the guards did a good job of rebounding. It was just a solid win. It might be, other than one or two other games, our best basketball game. A total complete game of basketball."

Anderson scored 17 points, but was limited to one assist and 5-of-15 shooting by Payton. Wallace and Arvydas Sabonis each had 15 and nine boards for the Blazers, who shot 45.5 percent (35-of-77) but committed 18 turnovers. Cato added 13 points off the bench.

"Looking up and down the stat sheet, they beat us in every category," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We just didn't start well. ... They were focused on rebounding. George has been juicing them all week, telling his team what a great rebounding team we are."
