Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Maybe Gary Payton should have taken a one-game break. It sure looked like his teammates did.

Suspended then reinstated by the Seattle SuperSonics in a matter of hours earlier today, Payton could do nothing to prevent his team from taking a 112-85 beating from the San Antonio Spurs.

Payton was suspended following Tuesday's 116-110 win at Dallas, where he argued with coach Paul Westphal on the sidelines in the fourth quarter and criticized him afterward, saying, "I'm playing for these dudes, these other 12 guys, and I don't give a damn about him."

The All-Star guard met with Westphal for 90 minutes prior to this game and the two apparently worked out their differences as Payton was reinstated.

"No comment about that," Payton said. "That's our coach and I communicate with our coach because I'm a point guard. I don't describe nothing I don't want to talk about. We don't need to describe our relationship. We're OK, we're fine, it's none of your business. Period."

Payton started but scored an insignificant 18 points as Seattle was overpowered by San Antonio and fell to 5-8.

"I don't see why there would be (fallout)," Westphal said. "I don't see who it affected except Gary and myself. There was no fallout from me and there didn't appear to be any from Gary the way he played."

"We just didn't play well that's something that just happens," Payton said. "We've got to go back and see what we can do differently. It wasn't our night tonight."

Malik Rose scored 22 points and Derek Anderson added 18 for the Spurs, who took control with a huge second quarter and cruised to their sixth win in as many home games.

"Overall, we played real well defensively," Rose said. "Derek took the lead and challenged Gary Payton real well."

San Antonio won easily without big games from "Twin Towers" Tim Duncan and David Robinson, who combined for 25 points and 18 rebounds while sitting most of the fourth quarter.

Playing for the first time in five days, the Spurs had six players in double figures as they beat the SuperSonics for the seventh straight time.

"We started sluggish, giving up 29 points in the first quarter," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "That was my big worry, that after four days off we wouldn't be as sharp or play with much intensity. They realized it and started playing good team defense and executed better on offense."

Payton scored 10 points to help the SuperSonics grab a 29-25 lead after one quarter. But it came apart shortly thereafter.

The Spurs opened the second period with a 23-5 burst fueled by six points by Sean Elliott. His three-point play gave San Antonio a 48-34 lead with five minutes left in the first half.

"In the second quarter we did a great job of helping each other," Spurs guard Antonio Daniels said. "When someone would gamble on the ball, there was always someone there to pick up the man."

Anderson's 3-pointer closed the quarter and gave San Antonio a 61-40 lead. Seattle shot just 22 percent (5-of-23) and managed just 11 points in the second period.

The Sonics got no closer thereafter and the Spurs opened their largest lead at 97-62 on a 3-pointer by Danny Ferry with 7:44 remaining.

Elliott scored 12 points and Ferry added 10 for the Spurs, who shot 45 percent (38-of-85) and committed just nine turnovers while forcing 18.

Jelani McCoy scored 12 points and Rashard Lewis added 11 for the Sonics, who shot below 39 percent (32-of-83) and were beaten on the boards, 52-46.
