GAME RECAP

Gary Payton's three-pointer with 2:38 left in overtime ignited a decisive run and helped the Seattle SuperSonics to their fifth straight victory, 97-91 over the Miami Heat, who had their 10-game winning streak stopped.

P.J. Brown's second straight jumper gave Miami an 89-88 lead with 3:06 remaining before Payton nailed his long three-pointer with a second left on the shot clock to give Seattle the lead for good and tip off a 7-0 spurt.

Detlef Schrempf added a jumper with 63 seconds to play and, after Dan Majerle missed a three-pointer, Hersey Hawkins converted a short running jumper with 21.2 seconds left to make it 95-89. Alonzo Mourning's layup six seconds later cut the gap to four points, but Payton nailed two free throws to seal the win.

"I love playing games like this in front of a big crowd and on national t.v.," said Hawkins. "It brings out the competitor in me. We don't come back east very often, so people tend to not notice us. They'll notice us now. Not a lot of teams come in here and win."

Schrempf and Hawkins each tallied 18 points, while Sam Perkins scored five of his 16 early in the extra session for Seattle, which has won four in a row away from home to bump its NBA-best road record to 21-9.

Tim Hardaway totaled 20 points and 11 assists and Mourning had 20 points and 14 rebounds as Miami failed in a bid to match its franchise-best winning streak of 11, established from January 27th-February 20th, 1997.

"I didn't even know they had a winning streak," said Perkins. "Winning streaks are made to be broken. We knew they were playing well and to come in here and get a win like this is a big boost for us. This is the right way to start out a road trip."

The Heat, who also had a four-game home winning streak come to an end, lost their eighth consecutive game against Seattle and fell to 3-19 in the all-time series.

"This was a disappointing way to end a 10-game winning streak," said Brown. "We beat ourselves, the NBA's best did not beat us tonight."

Voshon Lenard scored all 18 of his points through three quarters to help Miami to a 70-66 advantage. Brent Barry then began the fourth period with a three-pointer -- his first points since being acquired by the Heat -- to give them their biggest lead at 73-66 with 11:14 to go.

Seattle answered by scoring the next seven points as Dale Ellis made a basket, Payton hit a free throw and jumper and Perkins nailed two foul shots with 8:30 left to even the score at 73-73.

Mourning's free throw with 5:22 to go gave Miami an 80-78 edge and Majerle added a three-pointer with 4:43 remaining for a five-point cushion. But the Heat would miss their final 10 shots in the quarter and go scoreless.

"This was an excruciating loss," said Miami coach Pat Riley. "I think we missed our last 10 shots (in the fourth quarter). We lost our poise and it cost us in overtime. We were a little bit desperate to get the ball up and we did not make good decisions at the end of the game."

Meanwhile, Schrempf made a layup with 4:24 left to cut the gap to 83-80, Vin Baker hit a jumper with 2:39 remaining and Hawkins split two foul shots with 2:08 left to knot the score at 83-83.

After a combined five failed possessions, Baker missed a driving bank shot with 10 seconds to go before Mourning was off on a baseline jumper with under five seconds left. Following a timeout, the Sonics worked the ball to Baker in the corner, but his shot was an airball and Perkins missed a tip to send the game into overtime.

"We didn't beat ourselves and we made big shots," said Seattle coach George Karl. "I trusted the team when we were down, I knew we would come back. We turned up the defense in the fourth quarter when both teams were tired."

Baker finished with 15 points and nine rebounds while Payton had 12 points and seven assists for Seattle, which shot 43 percent (36-of-84) from the floor, including 9-of-21 from three-point range.

Brown registered 10 points and 12 boards as Miami shot 39 percent (35-of-89) and won the rebounding battle, 50-45. The Heat put up a season-high 31 three-pointers, making 11.

"There are a lot of situations we wish we could do over again," said Mourning. "We stabbed ourselves in the heart. There's no way we should have lost this game."
