Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Gary Payton scored 11 of his 27 points in the decisive fourth quarter and collected 16 assists as the Seattle SuperSonics continued their dominance of the Golden State Warriors with a 99-85 victory.

The win was Seattle's ninth straight over Golden State and its 29th in the last 34 meetings. The SuperSonics have won 14 of the last 15 home games in the series.

Leading 68-63 after three quarters, the Sonics blitzed the Warriors with nine straight points to take a 77-63 advantage with 10:54 remaining. Payton ignited the run with two free throws and provided the finishing touch with a 3-pointer from the right sideline.

The All-Star guard gave Seattle its largest lead, 87-68, on a driving layup midway through the period. Golden State forward Donyell Marshall drained two 3-pointers and Larry Hughes added another to cut the deficit to 91-81 with 4:04 left but Payton hit consecutive baskets to push the lead to 14 points and the Sonics never looked back.

"We made a couple of stops, then Rashard (Lewis) got a steal and Gary got one and it went from a close game to a 10-point game real fast," Sonics coach Paul Westphal said. "They kept calling timeouts but we kept the defense going. I thought the group that was out there really played with great energy."

Marshall had 27 points and 12 rebounds and Hughes followed his season-high 41-point performance against the Los Angeles Lakers with 26 for the Warriors, who have lost seven of their last eight.

"Every loss is tough," Hughes said. "I think we could have won this game if we had gotten a couple of extra rebounds. If we had done some of the little things, we could have pulled it out."

Golden State appeared determined to end the Sonics' dominance, shooting a blistering 71 percent (12-of-17) in the first quarter to take a 30-21 lead. Although Seattle struggled throughout the period to find the range, the Warriors committed seven turnovers which allowed the Sonics to stay close.

But as hot as the Warriors were in the opening 12 minutes, the next 12 proved how quickly that can disappear.

The Warriors boosted their lead to 36-26 with 7:16 left but were outscored 19-7 the rest of the quarter and fell behind 45-43 at halftime. Golden State shot a dismal 22 percent (5-of-23) while the Sonics turned up the defensive pressure and began to heat up themselves, hitting 10-of-23 shots.

"We just had some lapses... some guys lost their assignments but from the second quarter on, our defensive intensity picked up and we were able to get on top of them," said Sonics guard Brent Barry, who added 10 points and seven rebounds.

Hughes tied the score for the final time at 63-63 on a dunk with 1:47 remaining in the third quarter but Seattle scored the last five points of the period, providing a glimpse of what was to come in the fourth.

Sonics forward Vin Baker scored nine points before leaving the game early in the second half with a strained left hamstring. Baker did not return and is listed as day-to-day.

Lewis scored 13 points, Horace Grant had 13 and 10 rebounds and Ruben Patterson added 11 and 10 for Seattle, which shot 43 percent (37-of-86) from the field and 20-of-26 from the line.

"In the first quarter, they did mostly what they wanted to do," Grant said. "In the second we turned up our defense. We generated some offense off our defense and that's why we won the game."

Adonal Foyle had a fine all-around game with 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting, seven rebounds and four blocks. Despite their blistering first quarter, the Warriors hit only 23-of-67 shots the rest of the way to finish at 42 percent (35-of-84). Golden State converted only 10-of-17 free throws.

"Seattle had a couple of spots where they turned their defense up very effectively," Warriors coach Garry St. Jean said. "They made about six 17-footers in a row (in the fourth quarter) and that does make the score move. The bright spot tonight was a Adonal. He did a very nice job."
