Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Gary Payton and Ruben Patterson got along just fine.

Payton returned from a one-game suspension to score 30 points and Patterson added 21 off the bench as the Seattle SuperSonics rallied for a 109-107 victory over the Sacramento Kings to end their three-game losing streak.

In Wednesday's 89-80 home loss to Phoenix, Payton argued on the sidelines with Patterson. The disagreement continued in the locker room after the game and Payton was suspended by the team Thursday.

The All-Star guard sat out Friday's 98-93 home loss to Minnesota but returned with a strong game Sunday. He made 12-of-23 shots and handed out eight assists.

"I thought Gary came back and had a solid effort," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "He had 23 attempts, but it really didn't seem like 23 attempts because he was playing within the flow."

"In the last five games, everybody's been away from what we really wanted to be," Payton said. "People were acting like they weren't happy about a lot of stuff. We just came back and needed to start playing basketball and don't worry about what's going on between this person and that person. Man, this is basketball. This is people. ... We're probably the only team in the NBA that if somebody's arguing with each other, it's all in the paper."

The tiff did nothing to slow down Patterson, who made 8-of-14 shots and grabbed 11 rebounds. In his last nine games, the forward is averaging 20.3 points and 8.0 rebounds.

"Ruben came off the bench and gave us a terrific effort," Seattle forward Vin Baker said.

Brent Barry scored 13 points and fueled a decisive run for the SuperSonics, who shot 49 percent (41-of-83), held a 51-42 edge in rebounds and earned a split of the four-game season series.

Seattle also got a big boost from rookie Olumide Oyedeji. The second-round pick, who had played just 14 minutes all season, had 10 points and nine rebounds in 21 minutes with starting center Patrick Ewing nursing a knee injury.

"Nate has talked about that when (Oyedeji) had the opportunity to come in and play, just come in and scrap," Barry said. Get in there, get dirty, be physical."

"I didn't know that I was going to get a lot of time," Oyejedi said. "I got the opportunity and I made use of it. I appreciate it. I have to do whatever I have to do to make the team win. I do it, just like Nike, I just do it."

Peja Stojakovic scored 30 points and Chris Webber added 25 and 18 rebounds for the Kings, who appeared to tire down the stretch and had a four-game winning streak snapped.

"They came back and got the win because they had more energy than us," Webber said.

Sacramento, which was coming off an emotional win at Portland on Saturday, was denied its fourth straight road win, something it had not done since March 28-April 2, 1983, when the franchise was in Kansas City.

"We didn't have the same energy but that shouldn't be a factor," coach Rick Adelman said. "We knew what Seattle had gone through the last couple of days and we knew that they were gonna come out and play very hard, with a lot of aggression. We needed to match that and we didn't."

A 3-pointer by Stojakovic gave the Kings a 78-69 lead with 3:34 left in the third quarter. Barry made two 3-pointers and scored nine points in a 13-0 surge that gave the Sonics the lead for good.

"You can see how the team can play when everybody's on the same page," Payton said. "When we're all on the same page and clicking, this team can beat anybody."

Payton had back-to-back baskets and Oyedeji hit a layup to push the advantage to 98-87 with 5:43 remaining. Payton's 3-pointer gave Seattle a 104-96 cushion with 2:48 left before Sacramento made one last surge.

A 3-pointer by Doug Christie and two free throws and a 3-pointer by Stojakovic cut the deficit to 106-104 with 58 seconds to go. Payton answered with two free throws and Webber had a layup with 30 seconds left, setting up Patterson's biggest play.

Vin Baker missed a jumper and Patterson outleaped Bobby Jackson for the offensive rebound. He passed to Payton, who was fouled and made 1-of-2 free throws with 3.4 seconds remaining for a 109-106 lead.

The Sonics fouled Webber before he could shoot a 3-pointer. He made the first and intentionally missed the second but it did not hit the rim and the referees awarded the ball to the Sonics. Patterson's inbounds pass was stolen but Christie's 60-footer at the buzzer was way off.
