Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Vin Baker burned his old team with 31 points as the Seattle SuperSonics extended their season-high winning streak to seven games with a 104-96 triumph over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Baker, who spent his first four seasons in Milwaukee before arriving in Seattle via a three-team deal in September 1997, made 10-of-21 shots and 11-of-12 free throws. He handed out six assists and grabbed five rebounds while committing just one turnover in 41 minutes.

He also scored the last nine points of the first half as the SuperSonics opened a 53-43 lead.

"There was no angle to this game, it's been three years now," Baker said of his return. "We came in on a winning streak and that was the most important thing. It is always good to come back and play well against a team that traded you. We are playing some of the best ball in the league right now."

Gary Payton collected 22 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Sonics, who have not lost since a 110-100 loss to the league-leading Los Angeles Lakers on January 8. Seattle has won nine of 10 overall since a season-high five-game skid and posted its first win in two meetings against former coach George Karl.

"We didn't play very well," Karl said. "I was impressed with how we made it a close game in the fourth. but there wasn't a lot of energy, not a lot of spark."

Milwaukee challenged down the stretch, forging a 92-92 tie on Tim Thomas' free throws with just under two minutes to play. But Payton made a pair of free throws and a layup and Baker put away the game by draining a 23-footer with 18 seconds left to make it 102-95.

"I got nervous down the stretch," Seattle coach Paul Westphal said. "We were standing around on offense too much. It gave Gary a chance to put on a show. I felt good for Vin, he just carried us in the first half."

Glenn Robinson scored 21 points for Milwaukee, which has dropped four of six. The Bucks had won their last three meetings with Seattle and 12 of the last 16 home meetings.

Sam Cassell had 19 points, eight assists and six rebounds for the Bucks and pulled them within 44-43 on a 15-footer with 3:07 left in the first half.

Baker responded with a 16-footer, four free throws a layup and another free throw with two seconds left before intermission, giving Seattle a 10-point cushion.

The Sonics maintained their advantage in the third quarter and opened an 89-77 lead on Payton's layup with 7:11 to play. But Robinson hit a short jumper, Thomas made consecutive layups and Allen drilled a 26-footer as Milwaukee fought back within 92-88 with 2:58 remaining.

"In think down the stretch we had a chance to win," Allen said. "(Karl) gets frustrated and we get frustrated. We have to work well with each other. George is our leader and we have to follow him."

Thomas finished with 14 points and completed the Bucks' comeback with a dunk and two free throws to knot the contest with 1:57 left. But the Sonics proved too strong for Milwaukee down the stretch and improved to 14-7 on the road.

Allen had 11 points and 13 assists and Scott Williams added 13 ponits for Milwaukee, which shot 46 percent (40-of-86) and held a 44-41 advantage on the boards. Vinny Del Negro scored 10 points off the bench for the Bucks, who scored 17 points off turnovers but were outscored, 22-13, at the line.

Ruben Patterson scored 16 points and Brent Barry 15 for Seattle, which shot 47 percent (40-of-86).

"We still have to work on keeping teams down when we get a lead," Barry said. "We had some guys step up and play well. I was happy for Vin coming back to Milwaukee and having a good game. It was a good road victory for us."

The Bucks slipped to 13-7 at the Bradley Center.
