Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- With no Ruben Patterson and Gary Payton limited to nine minutes due to an abdominal strain, the Seattle SuperSonics still found a way to hand the Chicago Bulls their franchise record-tying 13th straight loss.

Vin Baker and Emanual Davis combined for 41 points off the bench as the Sonics survived a late rally, holding on for a 97-91 triumph to give the Bulls their longest losing streak since 1976.

Baker, who was replaced by Patterson in the starting lineup earlier this season, scored 22 points and Davis matched a career high with 19 as Seattle posted its sixth win in seven games.

"I'm just trying to go out there and play ball," Davis said. "Play hard and try to get my hands on some balls and not try to worry about scoring too much. I just try to control the team and get the ball to the guys in a place where they can score."

"It was tough on us tonight," Baker admitted. "Obviously, not having Ruben and Gary going down. But at the same time, we felt like this was a winable game for us."

Patterson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge on Monday in his hometown of Cleveland and was suspended three games by the NBA earlier on Thursday.

Payton will undergo an MRI on Friday to determine the severity of his injury.

Ron Mercer scored 30 points and Elton Brand had 19 -- all in the second half -- for Chicago, which also lost 13 in a row from October 26-December 4, 1976. The Bulls will try and avert establishing a new record when they visit Vancouver on Saturday.

Ron Artest scored 13 points and Brad Miller grabbed 10 rebounds for Chicago, which shot 51 percent (35-of-69), held a 33-32 rebounding edge but yielded 23 points off turnovers.

The Bulls have dropped 11 straight road games and maintain the NBA's longest skid this season. The Los Angeles Clippers had lost nine in a row before posting a 101-84 victory at Houston on Thursday. The Clippers and Bulls will meet at the Staples Center on Monday.

"Needless to say, it's frustrating," Chicago coach Tim Floyd said. "I admire our guys for continuing to fight and continuing to put themselves in position to win."

Brent Barry split the point with Davis and had 17 points and 11 assists in 39 strong minutes. He hit all six of his shots, picked up three steals and and grabbed three rebounds as Seattle avenged an 88-81 home loss to the Bulls on February 2.

Patrick Ewing had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Rashard Lewis added 12 points for the Sonics, who shot 47 percent (36-of-77), hit 6-of-9 3-pointers and yielded just 10 points off turnovers.

"We have a lot of depth on this team," Ewing said. "The guys just have to step up."

Seattle appeared to be coasting with a 52-39 lead at the half but Chicago quickly turned the tables, using a 30-22 third quarter to make things interesting.

The Bulls pulled within one point on six occasions in the fourth quarter but was unable to overtake the Sonics.

Fred Hoiberg's dunk with 48 seconds to play shaved the deficit to 92-91 but Davis, Lewis and rookie Desmond Mason closed out the scoring by combining to make five free throws.

"The guys hung in there and pulled out a very big win," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "This team, Chicago, plays hard for 48 minutes and we knew they would do that and we didn't want to have to win it in the last five minutes. But we had to."
