Game Recap

Hersey Hawkins scored 12 of his 15 points in the third quarter as the Seattle SuperSonics kept pace in the Western Conference with their 60th win, a 110-98 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Gary Payton scored 17 of his 27 points in the first quarter for the SuperSonics (60-20), who have won 60 games in three of the last five seasons. Seattle remained one game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers (59-21) in the Pacific Division and one-half game behind the Utah Jazz (60-19) in the race for best record in the Western Conference.

"Any 60-win season is a great accomplishment and this is our third year," Seattle coach George Karl said. "Some guys might be accepting them as commonplace, but when I first started coaching, I never thought I'd win 60 games. It's a tremendous marathon race to keep your mental confidence and concentration. It's much more mental than physical."

"Sixty wins is pretty big for me," said Sonics forward Vin Baker, who played his first four seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks and never made the playoffs. "George said congratulations to those who haven't gotten 60 wins before. I said 'you could have said that for 40 wins for me'."

For the second straight game, Hawkins took control in the third quarter. He scored six straight points in a 12-0 run that gave the Sonics the lead for good, then added three-pointers on consecutive possessions. On Sunday, Hawkins scored 16 of his 20 points in 5 1/2 minutes of the third period.

"I don't know what it is about the third quarter lately," said Hawkins. "I've been able to come out and get some shots and hit some shots. There weren't any special plays for me tonight. I was just in the flow of the game."

Tony Massenburg scored a season-high 22 points for Vancouver, which fell to 0-6 all-time at KeyArena and 1-11 against Seattle. The Grizzlies dropped to 4-35 on the road.

"Quite honestly, they were giving us a lot of chances to win," Grizzlies coach Brian Hill said. "We were careless with the basketball against their double-teams. We had some defensive breakdowns with rotations that hurt us real bad in the third quarter."

Seattle built a 55-50 halftime lead behind Payton, but Vancouver opened the third quarter with an 8-2 run, taking a 58-57 lead with 9:37 left on a three-point play by Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who scored 18 points.

But Baker dunked to trigger the decisive run. Hawkins had a technical foul shot, a layup and a three-point play in a span of 67 seconds to boost the lead to seven points before a jumper by Detlef Schrempf and a layup by Baker made it 69-58 with 6:17 left.

On Seattle's next two possessions, Hawkins answered Vancouver scores with three-pointers, widening the gap to 75-62 with 4:25 remaining.

"We got back into the game and things fell apart for us," said Grizzlies guard Blue Edwards. "A lot of it was our inability to show patience on the offensive end. We played right into their hands."

The SuperSonics led 85-70 after three quarters and opened their largest lead at 93-73 on a basket by David Wingate with 9:12 to play. The Grizzlies, who again played without injured center Bryant Reeves, got no closer than the final margin.

"We just didn't execute down the stretch and without Country (Reeves), it was tough," Abdur-Rahim said. "They just had us tonight."

Baker had 18 points and nine rebounds, Jerome Kersey scored 14 points and Sam Perkins added 12 for the Sonics, who shot 49.5 percent (45-of-91) and forced 24 turnovers. Seattle was 8-of-17 from three-point range.

Antonio Daniels scored 15 points and George Lynch added 14 for the Grizzlies, who shot 46 percent (32-of-70), but just 2-of-8 from behind the arc. Vancouver made 32-of-42 free throws and battled Seattle to a 41-41 stalemate on the glass.

Payton came out on fire. Working against Lee Mayberry, he had 17 points in the first quarter as Seattle shot 73 percent and opened a 36-30 lead. Payton, who shot 10-of-14 in the first half, added six more points in the second period.

"He was lively," Karl said. "He was penetrating the ball and running up and down the court. Some of the other guys didn't have as much life as he did. Gary kept us in the game. In fact, that was as active and as quick as I have seen him in a long time."

"Coach Karl sat me down about a week ago and told me he wants me to be more aggressive," Payton said. "That's what it takes, playing wild and crazy. I've got to be aggressive, and not worrying about going in there and trying to make passes. When I'm more aggressive, I can get more guys into the game."
