Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Rashard Lewis and Emanual Davis shot the lights out as the Seattle SuperSonics used a lethal 3-point attack and a second-quarter explosion to destroy the Orlando Magic, 127-91.

Seattle held a 25-24 lead after one quarter but made 12-of-21 shots, including 4-of-7 beyond the arc, over the next 12 minutes. The Sonics outscored the Magic, 37-11, to take a commanding 62-35 halftime lead.

Orlando, which dropped its second straight since a season-high five-game winning streak, was just 5-of-20 from the floor in the second period.

The Magic were within striking distance at 33-31 with 10:05 left in the half before the Sonics went on a breathtaking 22-0 run that included 11 points by Davis, who sank three 3-pointers during the burst.

Davis went 5-of-7 from 3-point range as the Sonics knocked down a season-high 15 shots from the beyond the arc, falling two shy of the team record established at Vancouver on April 3, 1998.

"I had to be in a little zone and I didn't pay attention to the score at all," Davis said. "I just think we were hot, we shot the ball well. It's like an avalanche, everyone gets into a groove and starts relaxing and hitting their shots."

Lewis was 8-of-12 from the floor, including 4-of-6 from long range, for 21 points to lead seven Sonics in double figures.

Things did not improve much for Orlando in the third quarter as they were outscored, 37-25, to fall behind by 39 points.

Seattle was ranked 14th in the NBA at 97.9 points per game, but posted a season-high point total and its largest victory margin this season.

Gary Payton and Ruben Patterson each scored 17 points for the Sonics, who have won four of their last five games. The lone loss during that stretch was their most embarrassing setback of the season, a 118-85 thumping at Sacramento on Friday.

"Our main focus was to come in and jump on them quick," Patterson said. "We came into the locker room at halftime and said, `Let's finish them', and that's what we did.

"Emanual Davis and myself and Rashard, we all made shots and that was the key. Us guys have got to step up and that's what we did tonight."

First-year Orlando coach Doc Rivers' squad did not display its normal resilience and made a poor recovery from Friday's 107-99 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

"We got down so quick and then trying to play catchup with a team that is on fire hurts," Rivers said. "They made a lot of shots too. Those are shots that we gamble at times and give and they made them all. Just the rotations were so passive and slow. This was a tough one to sit through, I wish we had a white flag and could have waved it."

Chucky Atkins scored 21 points off the bench for the Magic, who slipped 1 1/2 games behind Detroit for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Brent Barry scored 16 points and Horace Grant and Vladimir Stepania added 10 apiece for Seattle, which shot 53 percent (45-of-85), held a 54-42 advantage on the boards and forced 18 turnovers.

"When they started missing their shots, we stepped up our defense," Grant said. "I made some shots and Brent made some shots."

Rookie Corey Maggette scored 13 points and Darrell Armstrong had 11 for Orlando, which shot 39 percent (36-of-93) and went 13-of-25 at the line.

"All we can do is chalk it up. We have to get ready for the next one," Armstrong said. "I give them credit, they were aggressive, they knocked down shots, we just didn't have it tonight."

After Atkins hit a 16-footer to pull the Magic within two, Davis drained a 25-footer to start the Sonics' run.

Jelani McCoy made a layup, Vin Baker a 20-footer and Patterson slammed and completed a three-point play by hitting a free throw to open a 43-31 cushion. McCoy sank a free throw, Patterson was good from 15 feet and Davis hit from 25 feet on consecutive trips to make it 52-31 with 3:06 left in the half.

Payton's three-point play 2:51 before intermission capped the outburst.
