Game Recap

Danny Manning scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half and Rex Chapman buried a pair of key baskets in the final two minutes as the Phoenix Suns snapped the Seattle SuperSonics' 12-game home winning streak with a 102-92 victory.

The Suns led by as many as 21 points in the third quarter, but Seattle opened the final period with an 11-2 spurt to pull within 80-72 with 8:37 to play. The Suns answered with seven of the next eight points, as Manning hit back-to-back layups to increase the lead to 87-71 with 6:44 remaining.

Vin Baker, who had 18 points and 12 rebounds, drained a turnaround jumper to slice it to 93-86 with 2:34 left. After Phoenix missed, Baker had a chance to cut it to five but missed a short jumper.

Chapman, who scored 15 points, made the SuperSonics pay, drilling a three-pointer with 1:55 to go. After Detlef Schrempf and Baker made back-to-back follow shots, Chapman answered with a 19-foot leaner to give Phoenix a 98-90 edge.

Jason Kidd, who had 12 points and nine assists, helped seal the win with a free throw and a three-pointer as the Suns won their fifth straight game and recorded its 12th 50-win season. Phoenix (50-25) moved within 1 1/2 games of San Antonio for fourth place in the Western Conference and homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

"This was a big win for us against the best team in the league," said Suns coach Danny Ainge. "This gives us a lot of confidence going into the playoffs."

Schrempf scored 23 points and Gary Payton added 22, but only two in the fourth quarter as Seattle had its five-game winning streak snapped. The Sonics (57-19), who suffered their first loss at KeyArena since a 106-96 setback to Boston on February 20th, fell percentage points behind Utah (56-18) for first place in the Western Conference.

Seattle, which ranks third in the league in shooting percentage, shot just 41 percent (33-of-80) and was 7-of-27 from three-point range.

"The three-point shot has brought us to where we are and we're not going to leave it," Baker said. "Our energy level wasn't there in the first half."

The Suns were in control of this contest from the early going, taking the lead for good just over two minutes into the game when Antonio McDyess dunked for an 8-7 edge. Phoenix ended the first quarter with a 9-2 spurt, capped by Chapman's free throw for a 28-20 lead.

McDyess scored all 13 of his points in the first half and dunked four times in the second quarter as the Suns steadily built the lead. One of his dunks closed a 13-5 run with 6:15 left as Phoenix opened a 43-29 advantage.

Kidd fed McDyess for an alley-oop slam to give Phoenix its largest lead of the first half, 52-34, before Baker answered with a 16-footer to make it a 16-point deficit at halftime.

"We were lucky to get the lead early on their home court and when they came back, we made the huge shots when we needed them," Kidd said.

Phoenix shot 54 percent (20-of-37) in the first half while holding Seattle to 35 percent (14-of-40). The Suns also dominated the boards, 24-12.

"We didn't play hard enough in the first half and we were forced to waste too much energy to catch up in the second," Sonics coach George Karl said. "We didn't have enough energy to push through for the win. Lately we've had a lack of energy to start the games. We need to come out in the beginning with more fire and intensity."

Manning made a pair of foul shots with 6:20 remaining in the third quarter for the Suns' biggest lead, 66-45.

Seattle trimmed the deficit to 78-61 after three quarters and Nate McMillan opened the fourth with two straight three-pointers to spark the 11-2 run. Manning responded with a bucket but Baker scored and Greg Anthony drained a three-pointer, pulling the Sonics within 80-72.

"The Suns have great outside shooters," McMillan said. "They're quick and can break down our defense. They're extremely tough to defend. They play like us and that gives us trouble."

Manning and McDyess, the Suns' starting forwards, grabbed seven rebounds apiece and combined to shoot 14-of-18 from the floor. Phoenix hit 52 percent (36-of-69) overall and owned a 42-34 edge on the glass.
