Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Rashard Lewis scored 25 points in 28 minutes as the Seattle SuperSonics jumped all over the Golden State Warriors early and cruised to a 113-87 victory, their 11th straight over the Pacific Division cellar dwellers.

The Sonics led, 20-13, before going on a 16-0 run that bridged the first two quarters. Rookie Vladimir Radmanovic scored 11 of his season-high 19 points during the burst, capping it with a 3-pointer with 10:18 left in the second quarter to make it 36-13.

Seattle took a 59-37 halftime lead en route to its 36th victory in the last 41 meetings with Golden State. The Sonics shot 53 percent (44-of-83) and limited the Warriors to 43 percent (33-of-78).

Lewis made 10-of-12 shots, including 2-of-2 from the arc, and had five rebounds and three steals. Seeing extra action due to the absence of the injured Vin Baker, Radmanovic was 6-of-9 off the bench and tied a season high with nine rebounds.

Brent Barry collected 21 points and Gary Payton added 20 and nine assists for Seattle, which moved into a fourth-place tie with Phoenix in the Pacific Division.

"This is a good win for the standings because there are a lot of teams right there in the hunt," Barry said. "We just wanted to come in and take care of business tonight and tomorrow night in Phoenix. It would be good to get two wins going into the All-Star break and feel good before the second half of the season."

The Sonics, who halted a three-game skid, led by as many as 33 points in the fourth quarter and handed Golden State its fifth straight defeat.

"We knew we had to come back tonight and play defense and rebound," Payton said. "When one guy is out, everyone has to step up. We didn't change our game plan with Vin out, we just came out and played but just harder."

Danny Fortson had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors, who have lost six straight home games against Seattle since March 19, 1999. Chris Mills added 17 points.

"They came out in the first half and the intensity level was high on both ends of the floor," Mills said. "They didn't seem like they were missing any shots and they were playing tough defense. They caused a lot of turnovers for our team. Everything was going their way and we could never recover from that."

Antawn Jamison, the Warriors' leading scorer, made just 1-of-7 shots and had seven points in 32 minutes. He was 0-of-3 from the arc for the Warriors, who sank only 2-of-10 3-pointers.

Paced by Payton's 3-of-3 performance from the arc, the Sonics made 9-of-15 3-pointers.

"We just had to put them away early and keep them down," Payton said. "If Rashard and Vladimir can play like that every night, we will be just fine. We know that they can play that way, they just need to continue to play that way."

Payton also added one steal to move past Derek Harper into ninth place on the NBA's all-time list with 1,958. He extended his streak to 15 games in which he has scored at least 20 points.

"We play well on the road and can't finish in Seattle," said Sonics coach Nate McMillan, whose team surrendered 41 points in the fourth quarter Saturday and lost at home to lowly Chicago. "We just need to continue to play. Lately, we haven't been able to finish games out, but tonight we were solid and we executed, so I was happy with that."

Golden State has lost 15 of 17 games following a 101-90 upset of the Los Angeles Lakers on December 26. The 26-point defeat was the Warriors' second-largest this season behind a 111-82 loss to Dallas on December 1.

"We get paid to be professional," Warriors coach Brian Winters said. "We get paid to be competitors. We get paid to go out and perform every night. That's what we get paid to do, all of us, so there's no excuse for tonight."

"It's like being on the sorry team out there on the pickup court, when the other team is kicking you butt," Fortson added. "But if we have any heart and pride, we'll come back after the All-Star break and be a different team."
