Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Baron Davis got the best of Gary Payton and helped knock the Seattle SuperSonics from the ranks of the unbeaten. Davis nearly posted a triple-double with 23 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists as the New Orleans Hornets handed the SuperSonics their first loss of the season, 86-84. After Payton's jumper pulled Seattle within two points with 2 1/2 minutes left, Davis took a charge from the SuperSonics gaurd. "You have to be aggressive and make him work because you know he's going to get his," said Davis, who also made three steals. "I just wanted to keep him in front of me. We had scouted that play and the referee made a great call." Jamal Mashburn made two free throws before Davis faked Seattle's Desmond Mason with a crossover and drove the lane for a layup that gave New Orleans an 84-80 lead with 45 seconds left. "It always means a lot to play against the best and I'm always looking forward to that matchup," Davis said. "He's a great player and I've always patterned myself after him. I think we're both similar at this point of my career compared to how he played when he was my age." Vladimir Radmanovic's follow shot with six seconds remaining pulled Seattle within a basket. On the ensuing possession, Radmanovic nearly stole the ball from Jamal Mashburn but was forced to foul P.J. Brown, who made both free throws with five seconds to go. Payton made a driving layup at the buzzer, but it was not enough to avoid Seattle's first loss. Dallas is the only NBA team without a defeat. "Davis hit some big shots tonight," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "Davis can go anywhere he wants on the floor with the ball. Davis is one of the good young points guards in the league. We weren't getting to him. Again, we were always a second or two late." David Wesley added 19 points and Mashburn contributed 16 for the Hornets, who have won all three home games since relocating from Charlotte. "Each win you get now makes it easier come March and April," New Orleans coach Paul Silas said. "In December, we go out on the road forever, so we've got to get as many wins at home as we can now. We'll win our share on the road, but it's important that we get off to a good start at home." Payton had 29 points and nine assists and Rashard Lewis chipped in 21 points and seven rebounds as the Sonics played back-to-back games for the first time this season. They were denied their first 5-0 start since the 1998-99 campaign. "We played hard for the most part," McMillan said. "But we didn't execute as well tonight as he have in the past. It seems like we were always a step slow." After Seattle jumped out to a 15-8 lead, the Hornets closed the first quarter with a 17-5 run. They started the second period with a 10-2 spurt. New Orleans maintained a comfortable lead in the third, but the Sonics went on a 13-4 run, capped by Payton's basket, midway through the fourth quarter to get back into the game. Jamaal Magloire pulled down a season-high 11 rebounds and added eight points and George Lynch had nine boards for the Hornets, who shot 40 percent (32-of-80) from the field. Seattle averaged 35 bench points in its first four games but produced just 11 against the Hornets, 10 from Mason. The Sonics, who failed to shoot better than 45 percent for the first time this season, had been shooting an NBA-best 47 percent from 3-point range. But they clicked on just 1-of-12 attempts against the Hornets. "This was the first game this year we didn't knock down our baskets consistently, and it burned us," Payton said. "We dug ourselves in a hole and we couldn't come back." Playing against Davis did not provide any added inspiration for Payton. "Playing against anybody motivates me," he said. "There are a lot of good point guards in the league. (Davis) is one of them. I get motivated against anybody."
