Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Gary Payton scored eight of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as the Seattle SuperSonics remained unbeaten with an 89-82 victory over the winless Golden State Warriors.

Payton has led Seattle in scoring in all four games this season, helping the SuperSonics get off to their first 4-0 start since they opened the 1993-94 season with 10 wins.

"We don't want to be recognized right now," Payton said. "Let the Houstons and Utahs be known."

The All-Star guard, who is averaging 24.0 points per game, added 11 assists and seven rebounds in 43 minutes. Payton made three steals, giving him 1,500 for his career.

"He's a superstar and he's playing like a superstar," Seattle coach Paul Westphal said. "Whatever you need, he seems to do it."

Completing a sweep of a home-and-home series, Seattle recorded its eighth straight victory over Golden State and improved to 25-4 in the last 29 meetings between the Pacific Division rivals. The SuperSonics posted a 90-71 victory in Seattle on Tuesday.

"This was a good win for us, but we obviously aren't hitting on all cylinders," said Westphal, whose club overcame 17 turnovers.

"When we beat them by 19, we knew it was going to be hard to beat up on them tonight," added Payton. "We just turned the ball over too many times and let them back in their groove."

Donyell Marshall scored two straight baskets to give the Warriors a 73-68 lead with 7:21 remaining. Detlef Schrempf, who added 17 points, answered with a 3-pointer before Payton hit a turnaround five-footer on the baseline and completed a three-point play to give the Sonics a 76-73 edge with 4:41 left.

Golden State grabbed a 77-76 advantage on Chris Mills' baseline jumper with 3:43 to play, the fifth lead change in the final minutes. But Seattle took the lead for good at 78-77 on Olden Polynice's hook in the lane 24 seconds later.

"I thought we played very hard," said Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo. "This was the third game that we put ourselves in position to win. I think it is important for the players to know that we didn't get it done and we are not satisfied with that."

Dale Ellis banked in a fadeaway jumper in the lane while surrounded by three defenders to give the Seattle an 83-77 lead with 39 seconds left. The Sonics registered their final four points from the foul line.

Ellis scored 16 points and passed Julius Erving for 38th place on the all-time NBA scoring list with 18,377 points.

John Starks scored 22 points and Mills added 19 for the Warriors, who fell to 0-4, including three home losses. Golden State started last season with nine losses.

"We're working hard, building toward some success, but we're a young team mixed with some veterans," Starks said. "I want the league to understand we're not a doormat. You're not going to come in, wipe your feet and get a win."

Terry Cummings added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who join Denver and the Los Angeles Clipper as the NBA's only winless clubs.

"You have to compete every night," Cummings said. "I will be 38 in March, but I'm going to play like I'm 21 or 25 because I know I have to."

Seattle's Vin Baker continued an embarrassing streak, missing all four of his free throws, and is 0-for-14 from the line this season.

Starks scored nine points in the first quarter as the Warriors shot 61 percent from the field to buid a 27-19 lead. Golden State had scored 23 points in the opening period in its two previous games.

Payton scored nine points in the second quarter, helping the Sonics pull within 45-43 at the half. The Warriors scored just 16 points in the period.
