GAME RECAP

The Seattle SuperSonics posted their best offensive effort in nearly three years and recorded their 18th straight home win over the Washington Wizards with an easy 133-109 victory.

Vin Baker scored 26 points to pace the SuperSonics, who have not lost at home to Washington since January 2nd, 1980. Detlef Schrempf contributed 21 points as Seattle won for the 16th time in the last 18 meetings overall and avenged a 95-78 loss at Washington earlier this season.

"I think it's probably the most total team game we've had in a while. The energy was great," Sonics coach George Karl said. "We had good bounce to ourselves and I think we showed our pride against a team that beat us."

Ironically, that loss marked the Sonics' lowest point total of the season. Tonight, Seattle had scored a season-best 74 points by halftime and registered its highest point total since a 133-112 victory over Dallas on April 13th, 1995.

"Pretty much a perfect basketball game in terms of Seattle," Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "You've got to hang within eight to 10 points when a team is playing that well, and I thought they played exceedingly well. Our guys came to play, but Seattle was much, much better."

Jerome Kersey scored a season-high 18 points and Gary Payton chipped in 17 and seven assists for Seattle, which reclaimed sole possession of first place in the Western Conference at 52-17. The Utah Jazz, who were idle tonight, are one-half game behind the SuperSonics, winners of nine straight home games.

Ledell Eackles and Chris Whitney scored 18 points apiece off the bench for Washington, which fell to 2-1 on its five-game road trip and slipped into a tie with New Jersey for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Baker, Schrempf and Kersey combined to shoot 25-for-34 (74 percent) from the field. Seattle shot 60 percent (53-of-89) overall to win for the seventh time in its last nine games and improve its Western Conference-best home record to 30-4.

"I think we really came out a little more focused tonight offensively," Baker said. "Every game for us is crucial and all season long, we've responded to win games that have been important. Down the stretch, we can't have any lapses."

Seattle never trailed and took a 36-31 lead after one period behind Baker's eight points. Washington was within 38-34 early in the second quarter when the Sonics reeled off the pivotal 18-8 burst.

Dale Ellis capped that run with a three-pointer, building the lead to 56-42 with 6:20 left before halftime. Ellis scored nine of his 12 points in the second period, helping Seattle take a 74-55 lead at the break.

The Sonics hit 30-of-44 (68 percent) from the field in the first half, while Washington shot 48 percent (21-of-43).

"We shot a very good percentage and we were able to run because we controlled the rebounds," Schrempf said. "They didn't have a lot of energy, they didn't get back on defense and that allowed us to get a lot of easy shots."

Seattle put the game out of reach in the third quarter, duplicating its second-quarter scoring output by collecting another 38 points. Baker had 12 of those as Seattle created a 112-77 cushion.

Payton had nine points in the third period, including seven in a 9-0 spurt to end the quarter. Aaron Williams opened the fourth with a dunk to give Seattle its biggest lead.

Hersey Hawkins chipped in 13 points for the SuperSonics, who owned a 52-37 edge on the boards. They scored 64 points in the paint, exactly twice as many as Washington.

Chris Webber scored 17 points and Rod Strickland added 16 and six assists for the Wizards, who shot 42 percent (40-of-95) overall and 7-of-27 from behind the arc. Tracy Murray chipped in 16 points but was just 2-for-9 from three-point range.

"They had it going the way they moved the ball around," Strickland said. "They have four guys, sometimes five that make plays and that's tough. That's pretty much what happened tonight. We threw some traps at them, but they just threw a clinic on us."

Washington, which had won at New Jersey and Portland to open the five-game road trip, fell to 9-3 against the Pacific Division and 18-8 overall against the West.
