GAME RECAP

Detlef Schrempf and Hersey Hawkins hit consecutive three-pointers in the final two minutes as the Seattle SuperSonics took over the top spot in the Western Conference with an 88-86 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Utah's Karl Malone made a 12-footer to break an 80-80 tie with 1:54 left in the fourth quarter. Schrempf sank a three-pointer 11 seconds later to give Seattle the lead for good and Hawkins followed that with 74 seconds to play.

"As a team we were able to maintain our composure all game, which is hard to do against a team like Utah," Baker said. "This was playoff-type basketball. All the games are important from here on out. The Sonics are ready for the playoffs."

Jeff Hornacek's jumper pulled Utah within 86-84 with one minute remaining, but Vin Baker answered with a fadeaway jumper from the lane 18 seconds later. Malone had a chance to cut the deficit to one, but missed a free throw after he was fouled on a jumper with 27 seconds left.

"Now we have to win all our games down the stretch," said Hornacek, who had 11 points and seven assists. "They said it was a must win game for them but we both have to win all our games to finish first."

Seattle ran the shot clock down on the following possession and Payton missed a layup with three seconds to go. Howard Eisley grabbed the rebound and Utah called time out to set up a final shot. But John Stockton's jumper from the top of the key hit off the rim at the buzzer.

Baker had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Schrempf added 17 and nine for Seattle, which won for the fourth time in five games and second in four meetings with the Jazz this season. Payton recorded 14 points and nine assists for the SuperSonics, who improved to 32-10 against the Western Conference. Hawkins scored nine points, making 2-of-4 three-pointers, as the Sonics shot 52 percent (12-for-23) from behind the arc.

"This was the biggest game of the year for us," Hawkins said. "We played with aggressive intensity, hanging in there all game and kept the game close and were able to make our shots at the end."

Malone had 20 points and 10 boards and Adam Keefe and Shandon Anderson each added 12 points for the Jazz, who had a five-game winning streak snapped. Stockton was limited to nine points and five assists as Utah fell to 29-12 against conference opponents.

"Every game is a big game this time of year," said Utah coach Jerry Sloan. "Our players are paid to play every night so every night is a big game."

Nate McMillan, who made 2-of-2 three-pointers off the bench, sank a 26-footer to give the Sonics their biggest lead of the game, 71-63, with 9:44 left in the fourth. Chris Morris hit a 15-footer to spark a 14-5 burst that gave Utah a 75-74 edge with 5:25 remaining. Schrempf answered with two free throws but Stockton hit an 18-footer to give Utah a 77-76 edge with 4:36 to go. Shandon Anderson dunked to push the lead to 79-76 with 3:16 left.

Schrempf made a hook shot to pull the Sonics within 79-78 with 3:03 to play. Stockton made one free throw with 2:36 left and Payton tied the game at 80-80 when he made a layup 27 seconds later.
