Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Erick Dampier collected 19 points and 13 rebounds and helped the Golden State Warriors dominate from the outset, handing the underachieving Seattle SuperSonics another disappointing defeat, 90-78.

Seattle's Gary Payton opened the game with a 3-pointer before Golden State reeled off 16 straight points to take command. Bimbo Coles scored eight of his 14 points in that burst and Dampier contributed three baskets, including a hook shot that capped it with 5:59 remaining.

The Warriors held the SuperSonics to 5-of-20 (25 percent) from the field in the first quarter to take a comfortable 31-15 lead. Golden State, which forced five turnovers and did not commit one in the period, limited Seattle's starting five to seven points on 1-of-11 shooting during the opening 12 minutes.

"They played a solid game. They won the game in the first quarter," said Sonics coach Paul Westphal. "They were more aggressive than we were."

Golden State led by at least nine points the rest of the way and Seattle did not cut the deficit under double digits in the second half.

John Starks scored 20 points to pace the Warriors, who ended a four-game losing streak and won for just the second time in the last 16 meetings with Seattle.

"It's the intensity that you've got to have all the way through the fourth quarter. You can't go out and play soft," Starks said. "You can't play great all the time, so you have to play with a passion. Tonight, we played with a passion out there."

Detlef Schrempf scored 21 points for the SuperSonics, who fell to 12-10 and lost for the sixth time in nine games. They did not suffer their 10th loss until their 43rd game last season.

"We respected the Warriors, we didn't come in here and think they couldn't do that to us," Westphal added. "There was no reason not to match their aggressiveness, and we didn't."

Payton scored 18 points but hit just 5-of-19 shots and Seattle finished a mediocre 34 percent (23-of-67) from the floor. Vin Baker, who scored a season-high 31 points in a last-second win over Vancouver on Tuesday, was held to nine points on 2-of-11 shooting.

The Sonics connected on just 5-of-20 3-pointers, including a 3-of-10 effort by Payton. Dale Ellis missed all six of his attempts from beyond the arc and was 0-for-8 from the floor, scoring all eight of his points from the foul line.

"They played hard and were very aggressive," Ellis said. "They made shots, we didn't, and that was the ballgame. I don't like games like this, but it happens."

A 3-pointer by Starks gave the Warriors their largest lead, 43-24, with 6:50 left in the second quarter. Starks' 21-footer made it 47-28 with 5:16 to go, but the Sonics responded with 10 straight points. Schrempf had a pair of buckets in that spurt, helping slice the margin to 47-38.

The lead was 51-40 at the half, and just when Seattle appeared it might be headed for a rally, Golden State's defense held strong in the third period. The Warriors limited the Sonics to an atrocious 3-of-15 (20 percent) from the floor in the quarter.

Dampier, whose point total was a season high, had eight points, six boards and a block in the third, after which Golden State owned a 67-54 cushion.

Seattle failed to make a run in the fourth, watching its three-game winning streak come to an end. Those victories came against the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers and Vancouver Grizzlies, who combine for an 11-58 record.

Jason Caffey had 14 points and nine rebounds and rookie Antawn Jamison added 13 and nine off the bench in his first game back from a sprained left ankle. That duo helped Golden State to a 50-28 advantage in points in the paint.

"We haven't had any energy the last couple of games," Jamison said. "That is something John (Starks) told me he thought I could bring off the bench. That is something that we need to bring wihtin ourselves."

While the Sonics committed 19 turnovers, they scored just six points off nine turnovers by the Warriors.
