Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Seattle SuperSonics became the final team to clinch a playoff berth in the Western Conference by rolling to a 123-108 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Involved in an altercation with teammate Vernon Maxwell earlier this week, Sonics point guard Gary Payton had a huge night, finishing with 35 points and 15 assists. He toyed with Kings second-year playmaker Jason Williams the entire night.

"We came out and played hard and together, hit the boards, moved the ball, moved ourselves and it was just a beautiful thing," Seattle coach Paul Westphal sad. "We like to play that way. Sometimes we get a little off track but it was a very nice win for us. The energy was there."

Rashard Lewis added 20 points and Vin Baker had 15 and 14 rebounds for the Sonics, who reached the playoffs for the ninth time in the last 10 seasons. They missed the postseason during the lockout-shortened campaign.

"Obviously having a five-game losing streak we forgot how to win," Grant said. "To get this monkey off our back and have it be significant, we beat the team directly in front of us and at the same time clinch a playoff berth."

Seattle, which stopped a five-game losing streak, pulled to within one-half game of the Kings for seventh place in the west.

Predrag Stojakovic netted 23 points and Chris Webber had 22 and 12 rebounds for the Kings, who lost for the first time in three meetings against Seattle this season.

"The worst team to play is a team in turmoil," Webber said. "It's almsot like they look forward to games because there is no pressure. Whe you're playing like that you have the wind at your back. You have to credit them for coming and playing well and resolving any issues they had."

Payton abused the Kings from the start. He scored 11 of his 13 first-quarter points in a 24-12 over the final 7:14 of the period that provided Seattle with a 36-22 advantage. "The Glove" also handed out six assists in the quarter.

A 3-pointer by Stojakovic with 3:45 to play before intermission helped the Kings pull within 56-47. However, the Sonics closed the half on a 13-2 burst to built a commanding 69-47 cushion at the break. The 69 points was the Sonics' high in the first half this season.

"They jumped on us from the very start. We were very poor on transition defense, especially the first half," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We gave them a lot of easy baskets. We knew they were going to come out strong with everything that has been going on. They very aggressive. They got us down and kept us down."

Payton finished with 22 points in the half as the Sonics shot a blistering 59 percent (30-of-51). Payton made 9-of-11 attempts from the floor in the half.

Horace Grant, injured while breaking up the tussle between Payton and Maxwell, added 14 points for Seattle, which shot 54 percent (49-of-91) overall. The Sonics also managed a 47-37 rebounding advantage.

Corliss Williamson added 17 points for the Kings, who never cut the deficit below 15 points in the second half. Sacramento shot 51 percent (44-of-86).
