Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- After suffering their first home loss of the season on Tuesday, a matchup with the woeful Golden State Warriors was just what the Seattle SuperSonics needed.

Gary Payton scored 27 points and Vin Baker added 25 as the Sonics cruised to a 117-108 victory over Golden State, which suffered its eighth consecutive loss.

Despite the nine-point final margin, Seattle was in control throughout, opening a 107-87 lead on Emanual Davis' basket with 6:14 remaining, before the Warriors made it close with a late run.

"We knew we were going to win," Seattle coach Paul Westphal said. "They kept hustling, give them credit. They played hard the whole game."

Golden State got within seven at 115-108 on two foul shots by recently acquired Chris Carr with 37 seconds remaining. But the Warriors' last realistic chance faded when Carr launched an air ball from 3-point range with 1:41 left and Seattle holding a 112-103 lead.

Westphal may not have been concerned about the Warriors' late run but he put Payton back in the game with 2:06 remaining. Payton went to the bench with 7:27 left in the fourth quarter and the Sonics leading, 102-86.

Payton criticized the play of the Sonics reserves, who allowed Golden State to close the game with a 21-8 spurt.

"If they want to mess up and don't want to play, then I'll go back out there," Payton said.

Rookie Vonteego Cummings scored 19 points and Antawn Jamison added 18 for Golden State (2-13), which has the second-worst record in the NBA, ahead of only the Chicago Bulls (1-13).

The Warriors are doing little to protect coach P.J. Carlesimo, whose job reportedly is on the line.

"It's getting frustrating every day," Jamison said. "I don't think we're to the point where we're panicking. You want to stay positive."

Cummings enjoyed matching up against Payton, who he says is his favorite player in the league.

"It was a great opportunity to go out there and face him," Cummings said. "I like a lot of things he does on the court as far as his defense and offense. I thought it was a great thrill to be out there on the same court with him."

Seattle has won 15 of the last 17 meetings with Golden State, including a 111-108 victory at KeyArena on November 17.

"We only had 11 turnovers in the game and we outscored them in the third and fourth quarter," Carlesimo said. "Our guards did a good job but that backcourt of theirs is excellent. Gary is probably the toughest guard to play against."

The Sonics were coming off a 101-77 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, but they got back on track against the shorthanded Warriors, who were missing three frontcourt players.

Earlier in the day, the Warriors placed forwad Donyell Marshall on the injured list with patellar tendinitis in his left knee. He joins centers Tim Young and Erick Dampier, who already were on the injured reserve.

Golden State did not lead after scoring the first basket of the game yet matched a season high in points despite shooting only 42 percent (40-of-96) from the field. Seattle shot 49 percent (42-of-85).

"We emphasized coming out and playing good defense," Westphal said. "They got a lot of points after the game was over. They're shooting roles are well documented. If we played good defense they wouldn't have scored."
