Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Rashard Lewis scored 26 points and Gary Payton added 21 as the Seattle SuperSonics recorded their 12th consecutive win over the Golden State Warriors, 110-93.

Lewis sat out Saturday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers with a shoulder injury, but it didn't give him any problems against Golden State. Lewis made 12-of-18 shots and had nine points during Seattle's 19-8 run to open the third period.

Lewis started the run by rebounding his own missed free throw and converting an easy layup just 12 seconds into the third period. After that, Golden State never threatened and went nearly three minutes without a basket.

"Once the whistle blew, I wasn't even thinking about my shoulder," Lewis said. "I felt there was no reason not to play because we need everyone of these games. I went out there and played my game. I was in the flow of the game. We were only up six points at the half, they were killing us on the glass. The only thing that was hurting us was trading baskets with them. It took a total team effort in the second half and that's what we did."

After Lewis's layup, Brent Barry made a jumper that made it 64-53 with 11:07 remaining. Seattle's lead would not dip below 10 points thereafter and its largest lead was 21 points.

Barry chipped in 19 points while reserve forward Desmond Mason had 12. Seattle, which is the NBA's top shooting team, shot 55 percent (46-of-83).

Payton scored 17 points in the first quarter as Seattle raced out to a big lead. But Golden State managed to cut the deficit to 59-53 at halftime and Payton let his teammates get involved in big second half.

"In the second half, I figured we needed to get everyone else involved in the game," Payton said. "So I started picking them apart by getting the ball to other guys."

"Our main concern was to be sharp tonight," added Seattle coach Nate McMillan. "It wasn't just about winning the game. It was how we won the game and I think tonight we were pretty sharp. We knew this team was a good offensive rebounding team and we wanted to limit them to one shot if possible and then execute on the offensive end."

Golden State, which entered the game as the NBA's top rebounding team, was outrebounded 38-29.

The Warriors, who have lost seven straight games overall and 19 of their last 20 in Seattle, had 14 turnovers in the second half.

Danny Fortson scored 21 points for Golden State. He had missed the last two games while serving a suspension for exceeding the maximum number of flagrant foul points.

Overall, the Warriors placed six players in double figures and shot 49 percent (35-of-72).

"It was a tall order but we had a decent first half," Warriors coach Brian Winters said. "The game was six points, anybody's game and then we come out and it's 14. We didn't come out ready in the first four or five minutes (of the third quarter). From there it was basically downhill from there."

"Most of it is mental," said Warriors forward Antawn Jamison. "But that's something we've been doing all year. It's been our downfall all year. It's the first three or four minutes of the third quarter or the last three or four minutes of the fourth quarter."

Seattle (38-30) has not lost to Golden State since March 19, 1999. Its last home loss against the Warriors was March 6, 1995.

The Sonics are in seventh place in the West, 1 1/2 games ahead of the Utah Jazz, who lost at home to Detroit on Tuesday night.
