Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Gary Payton had 29 points and eight assists and Vin Baker added 18 points and seven rebounds off the bench as the Seattle SuperSonics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 93-89, for their season-high sixth straight win.

Baker had made just 7-of-32 shots in his previous four games but knocked down 8-of-15 in 26 minutes against the 76ers, including a 16-footer from the left sideline that put the SuperSonics ahead for good, 81-79, with 2:27 remaining.

After Rodney Buford missed a 3-pointer, Payton hit one to push the lead to 84-79 with 1:47 to play.

"We are just executing right now," Payton said. "We are being really patient and not coming down and putting up quick shots. We are doing things that we are supposed to do."

Seattle is 3 1/2 games from the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, but also is 2 1/2 games behind the ninth-place Houston Rockets.

"If we had done this earlier and beat the teams we were supposed to beat then it would be more satisfying," Payton said. "We're winning games but we know we have to win basically all of them to get in it."

Rookie Desmond Mason scored 13 points in 21 minutes off the bench and Ruben Patterson added 11 and six rebounds as Seattle's reserves outscored Philadelphia's, 50-26.

Aaron McKie scored 21 points and Dikembe Mutombo added 14 and 10 rebounds for Philadelphia, which again was without injured All-Star Allen Iverson and became the last NBA team to lose three straight games this season.

Eric Snow had 14 points and nine assists for the Sixers, who shot 46 percent (33-of-72) but lost for the eighth time in their last nine games in Seattle.

McKie sank a 3-pointer to pull Philadelphia within 84-82 with 1:21 to go. Twenty-one seconds later Patterson hit a layup to give Seattle an 86-82 lead. After a timeout, George Lynch missed a jumper, Payton knocked the rebound from Snow and Brent Barry leaped on the loose ball and called timeout for Seattle.

"We've got to learn to get everyone involved offensively," said Lynch, who had seven points and 13 rebounds. "We've got to play inside-out. We're not a jump-shooting team. We're not playing the way we have been playing all year. We got away from playing as a team and we aren't playing on both sides of the ball."

On Seattle's next possession, Payton passed up a shot and Baker hit a 20-footer from the top of the arc for an 88-82 advantage with 29.3 seconds left. Snow made a 3-pointer and layup around 1-of-2 free throws by Payton, leaving Seattle with an 89-87 edge with 13.9 seconds remaining.

"We are just concentrating on trying to play hard and that is starting on the defensive end," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "It's carried over to the offensive end. We've shown a lot more patience offensively and the guys are playing really good baskteball right now."

Shammond Williams made a pair of free throws to give the Sonics a four-point lead 12.3 seconds left. After missing a jumper, Snow got his own rebound and made two free throws to cut it to 91-89 with 4.3 seconds to go. But Payton did the same for the final margin less than a second later and Buford missed a long 3-pointer as time expired.

Sixers coach Larry Brown underwent tests at a Philadelphia hospital earlier in the day that confirmed he has acid reflux and a hernia. His condition will be treated with medication and diet and he will rejoin the team in Phoenix on Friday.

"I just thought our turnovers in the second half (16) really hurt," Philadelphia assistant coach Randy Ayers said. "We had opportunities to convert in certian situations and tried to force the issue too much. You can't do that on the road. Their bench played extremely well. I think they scored about 50 points."

Mutombo had 11 points and six boards in the first half when the Sixers took a 48-45 lead.

Philadelphia's biggest lead was 55-45 on a pair of free throws by McKie with 9:57 left in the third. Rashard Lewis, who had 10 points, made a 3-pointer to cap a 9-2 burst and pull Seattle within 61-60 with 4:42 remaining in the third.

The Sonics closed the third with a 9-1 spurt, grabbing a 69-66 lead when Williams made a basket with 3.5 seconds to play.
