Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson may be the NBA's leading scorer, but Gary Payton is still the best all-around guard in the league.

Payton had 26 points, eight assists and six rebounds, outdueling Iverson and leading the Seattle SuperSonics to their 12th straight victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, 92-76.

Perhaps inspired by the potential for a great 1-on-1 matchup, Payton was 9-of-22 from the field after shooting only 29 percent (13-of-45) over his previous three games.

He converted consecutive three-point plays and drained a 3-pointer during a 25-9 run that gave the Sonics a commanding 64-45 lead with 3:07 remaining in the third quarter.

Payton, also one of the NBA's best defensive players, held Iverson to 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting. Iverson, who matched his season-low point total, did not play at all in the fourth quarter.

"They've got good defenders, but (Iverson) was 0-of-5 in the third quarter with three turnovers," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "He's not 100 percent. They did a good job, but we're not creating any offense off our defense."

Seattle (13-11) stayed above .500 with its fourth win in six games and snapped a two-game skid. The Sonics have not lost to Philadelphia since January 4, 1992.

Rookie Larry Hughes scored 15 points and Matt Geiger added 13 for the Sixers, who have been held below 80 points in each of their last three losses.

"They had so much more energy than us," added Brown. "We were tired in the first quarter. Their defense was great. They did exactly what they wanted to do. The more we struggled, the more they turned it up."

Detlef Schrempf scored 17 points and Dale Ellis added 11 off the bench for the Sonics, who were without starting forward Vin Baker.

"We're going small (without Baker)," Schrempf said. "That's how we usually play aggressively. We can't come out slow and expect to win. We've got to set a tone early and we usually do that with our defense."

Baker was diagnosed with a partially torn ligament in his left thumb earlier today and may be out of action for four to six weeks.

"He was really starting to play his best basketball and then he hurt his thumb at Golden State," Seattle coach Paul Westphal said. "But without him, we know that we have to scrap. We know we're not as big and we spread the floor. We run and gamble more on defense and just play more aggressively on defense because we know we've lost a great player, and we have to make up for that."

George Lynch and Eric Snow scored 10 points apiece for Philadelphia, which shot 37 percent and committed 17 turnovers.

Billy Owens collected 11 points and Olden Polynice grabbed 10 rebounds for Seattle, which held a 49-41 advantage on the boards.

Geiger sank a 10-foot jumper from the right corner with 2.1 seconds left in the first quarter to knot the contest at 21-21.

Seattle did not pull away until the end of the half, when Payton's driving layup with 24 seconds left capped a 6-0 run and gave the Sonics a 45-35 lead.

"We finally got off to a good start and carried the effort all the way through," added Westphal. "We had energy, we moved the ball and had some great performances."
