Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Seattle SuperSonics tool control in the second quarter and never looked back.

Ruben Patterson scored all of his 15 points in the second quarter as the SuperSonics snapped a season-high four-game losing streak with a 95-86 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

The night was an historic one for Sonics center Patrick Ewing, who became the 13th player in NBA history to score 24,000 career points. He accomplished the feat with a 15-footer with 6:43 left in the second quarter.

"It felt good. I've accomplished a lot in this league in order to reach 24,000, but my main goal is to win a championship," said Ewing, who is in his 15th season.

Brent Barry had six points and Patterson four in a 13-0 run to start the second period that gave the Sonics a 39-20 advantage. They led the rest of the way.

"We played great basketball in the first half. That's what this team is capable of," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "It was a wonderful first half. Then we took a step back and it was a fight. We just relaxed in the third quarter and you can't do that. Overall, we needed a `W' bad."

Gary Payton and Shammond Williams each added 16 points for the Sonics, who returned to the .500 mark at 18-18.

Jason Terry scored 27 points and Roshown McLeod 17 for Atlanta, which is 8-6 since a 4-16 start.

After opening a six-point lead after the first quarter, the Sonics began to pull away in the second. Atlanta opened the period by missing its first six shots and the Sonics took full advantage, reeling off the first 13 points.

Barry made a jumper and Patterson a layup, triggering the run. Barry capped the spurt with a 20-footer that opened a 39-20 advantage with 8:39 left before halftime.

Patterson played the entire second quarter, making 6-of-8 shots. He missed his only other two attempts and finished with eight rebounds.

Led by Patterson, the Sonics reserves outscored the Atlanta bench by a lopsided 42-20 margin.

"I just came out with a lot of energy," Patterson said. "I got to the basket and rebounded. That's what we need."

Williams made a pair of free throws with 4:25 left before halftime, giving Seattle its largest lead at 52-30. The Sonics held a 61-43 advantage at the break.

Rashard Lewis added 15 points for Seattle, which shot 41 percent (33-of-81). Vin Baker led the effort on the boards with 13 rebounds.

The Sonics went cold from the field in the third quarter, allowing Atlanta to get back in it. The Hawks used a 19-7 run, capped by a free throw by Terry that cut the deficit to 68-62 with 3:09 left in the period.

Seattle made just 4-of-23 shots in the quarter but still took a 72-65 advantage into the final period. The Hawks got no closer than six points thereafter.

"Obviously, two different halves. Their half was definitely better than ours," Atlanta coach Lon Kruger said. "Their energry, their activity, that really set a tone in the first half. They were much quicker and much more active than us. Obviously, a big hole at halftime. It was a good response by our guys, but we couldn't get back over the hump."

Lorenzen Wright chipped in 11 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks, who shot 43 percent (35-of-82) and committed 16 turnovers.

"I think we definitely have to credit Seattle," Terry said. "Our energy level just wasn't there tonight. I thought we were still in it. We beat ourselves tonight. You can't spot a team in this league 20 points at any time. Regardless of that, we came back and fought hard."
