Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Seattle SuperSonics are doing all they can to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Ruben Patterson scored five of his 20 points in the final 2:24 to propel Seattle to its fifth straight win, 104-99 over the terrible Golden State Warriors.

In a seesaw game, Patterson singlehandedly wiped out a 95-93 deficit when he hit a short jumper and followed with a three-point play that gave Seattle the lead for good with 1:35 remaining.

"He was very important because we could not get a low-post game tonight," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "Ruben was the best matchup we had tonight. He did a good job of scoring when they didn't double-team him and he made really good decisions."

Patterson scored nine points during a fourth quarter that saw six of the game's 17 lead changes.

Golden State's final lead -- and biggest of the fourth -- came on a hook shot by Antawn Jamison with 3:38 to play. The Warriors had a chance to extend the lead on their next possession, but missed two shots before they turned the ball over. Patterson then tied the game and led Seattle to victory.

After the three-point play by Patterson gave the SuperSonics a 98-95 lead, Patrick Ewing stepped up on defense and blocked a shot by rookie Chris Porter. The block led to an easy shot by Gary Payton, which extended the lead to five and forced the Warriors to start fouling.

"I just stepped up," said Ewing, who had 12 points, six rebounds and three blocks. "He tried to shoot it over me, but I was able to get my hand up in time."

Seattle hit 4-of-6 free throws in the final 30 seconds which was enough to seal the victory.

"We found a way to get this win," McMillan said. "We weren't as sharp as I would have liked but the execution was there. In the fourth quarter we started being more aggressive and we really took them out of what they wanted to do."

Payton finished with 19 points and Rashard Lewis also added 19 and hit 3-of-4 3-pointers to lead an attack that buried 69 percent (9-of-13) of its attempts from the arc. The Sonics moved just four games behind Phoenix and Minnesota for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

"We're not out of the picture," Ewing said. "We have some games against the teams that are right above us, so we have to make sure that when we play them, we get them."

The Warriors shot just 41 percent (39-of-93) from the floor as their season-high losing streak reached 10 games.

"It doesn't matter if you lose by two or three or get blown out," Jamison said. "Every day the number gets greater in the 'L' column so it's frustrating."

Jamison had 24 points and 10 rebounds but made just 10-of-25 shots for Golden State, which narrowly missed scoring 100 points for the first time in nine games.

"It was one of the better ball games that we've had in a while," Golden State coach Dave Cowens said. "A couple more efforts like that and we'll be alright. We'll get some W's."

Mookie Blaylock had 21 points and 15 assists and Porter added 20 and eight rebounds for the Warriors, who also have lost eight in a row at home.
