Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Since leaving Seattle, George Karl has blasted the SuperSonics. On Sunday, the Sonics blasted Karl's Milwaukee Bucks.

Gary Payton had 26 points and 15 assists as the Sonics raced to a big early lead and cruised to a 101-88 victory over Karl and the Bucks.

Karl guided Seattle to the playoffs seven straight seasons, including a trip to the NBA Finals in 1996. But he was let go after the 1997-98 season and joined the Bucks, whom he will be taking to the playoffs for the third straight year.

Over the past two years, Karl has taken a couple of swipes at the Sonics, specifically general manager Wally Walker. Earlier this season, he was fined $50,000 for disparaging remarks about his former team.

Upon his introduction, Karl received a smattering of boos among mostly cheers from the 15,575 at Key Arena. He could have had the best revenge as one more loss knocks the Sonics out of the Western Conference playoff race.

"I thought it was kind of a dead building," said Karl, who said knocking the Sonics out of the playoffs would not give him any pleasure.

Payton, the All-Star guard who enjoys a good relationship with Karl, made sure that did not happen. After giving Karl a big hug before the game, Payton destroyed the Bucks, making 12-of-24 shots and grabbing seven rebounds in a turnover-free 44 minutes.

Sonics coach Nate McMillan praised Payton for his defense.

"I thought he did a great job on Ray Allen," McMillan said. "He did a good job of containing him, pressuring and keeping his back to the basket."

Rashard Lewis scored 14 of his 20 points in the first half, when Seattle raced to a 59-40 lead. The Sonics led by double digits throughout the second half and won for the 11th time in 14 games.

"We didn't defend much and didn't make much of a commitment," Karl said. "We do that a lot. But usually when we do it, we shoot and we score. Instead of being down 19, we're usually only down nine or 10. Tonight we were down 19 and that was probably too much."

Ray Allen scored 20 points for the Bucks, who trailed by as many as 27 points and finished a tough 3-3 road trip with consecutive losses. Milwaukee's magic number for winning its first Central Division title since 1986 remained at two.

Vin Baker and Payton each made two baskets to open the second quarter, giving Seattle a 36-24 lead with 10:52 remaining. The Bucks were still within 47-38 after Glenn Robinson's 3-pointer with 4:19 to go before the Sonics closed the first half with a 12-2 surge that featured six points from Lewis.

"They got out there and ran the basketball," McMillan said. "It was some of our best execution offensively."

Ruben Patterson's three-point play gave the Sonics their largest lead at 79-52 with 1:50 left in the third quarter. The Bucks scored 17 straight points to cut the deficit to 10 early in the fourth quarter, but Patterson and Baker scored to make it 83-69 with 8:47 to go and Milwaukee never threatened again.

Patterson scored 17 points and Baker added 13 for the Sonics, who shot 47 percent (44-of-93) and had just nine turnovers.

Sam Cassell scored 19 points and Robinson added 17 for the Bucks, who shot 45 percent (34-of-75), including just 6-of-26 from 3-point range.
