Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- A game against the Cleveland Cavaliers is no longer a remedy for the struggling Seattle SuperSonics. Ricky Davis scored 22 points and Jumaine Jones added 16 and 10 rebounds as the Cavaliers snapped a 15-game losing streak to the SuperSonics with an 87-79 victory. Seattle has lost five consecutive games for the first time since the 1999-2000 season and is four games under .500 for the first time since December 2001. The Sonics could not even overcome the lowly Cavaliers, who posted their first win in the series since March 15, 2001. "I've never, ever been involved in a situation like this as a player or coach," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "Regardless of what we do from this point on, we will remember this last month and a half. This will remain a devastating time for us." "Its bad," Seattle guard Brent Barry said. "We have to believe at some point the sun is going to come out and well get out of the funk. We continue to do the same things over and over and banging our head against the wall. Weve got to go back and look at some things and figure a way out of this." Cleveland won for just the third time in 20 road games this season and snapped a 10-game slide in Seattle, winning in KeyArena for the first time since November 27, 1993. The Sonics had a 71-66 lead after the third quarter but managed just eight points on 3-of-17 shooting in the fourth. "You can call it what you want, it was bad," McMillan said. "It was just a matter of executing your offense and playing some defense and getting some stops and we didn't do that." The game was tied, 74-74, with 6:11 left before the Cavaliers closed the game with a 13-3 run. Jones gave Cleveland the lead for good on a dunk with 5:53 left and added another dunk for a 79-74 edge less than three minutes later. Milt Palacio and Davis made two free throws apiece before the Cavs closed the improbable victory with spectacular dunks by rookie Smush Parker and Davis. "This has been a developmental year," Cleveland coach John Lucas said. "I look at how we finish the game. We normally lose games like that with a young team. We stayed disciplined, we stayed calm. We did the things that we wanted to do to win the game." Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Parker finished with 10 points for Cleveland, which improved to 1-1 on a season-high six-game road trip. "We really concentrated this time and learned from the mistakes we made in the past," said Cavs forward Darius Miles, who had nine points and seven rebounds. "We knew the Sonics have been in a slump and we have been in a slump all year." The Cavaliers shot just 42 percent (32-of-77) from the floor but held the Sonics to 40 percent (32-of-80) and had a 48-37 rebounding advantage. Gary Payton had 21 points and was the only player to score in the final six minutes for the Sonics, who have lost four straight home games. Seattle's Rashard Lewis scored 11 of his 17 points in the first quarter, but Davis had 12 as the Cavaliers carried a 24-23 lead into the second. Payton scored eight points in the second quarter as the Sonics rallied for a 46-42 halftime edge. Barry made two free throws to open the second half and Payton followed with a jumper for a 50-42 advantage - the biggest lead of the game for either team until the final minutes.
