Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- If this turns out to be Gary Payton's final appearance in a Seattle uniform, at least he went out as a winner. The subject of numerous rumors, Payton scored 31 points on the eve of the trade deadline as the Sonics snapped a season-high six-game losing streak with a 103-94 victory over the New York Knicks. "I'm happy with the effort the guys gave tonight," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "We did a good job of executing our game plan." New York dropped to 2-2 on its six-game road trip after a late rally fell short. The Knicks cut a 16-point deficit to 91-88 on Clarence Weatherspoon's two foul shots with 3:44 left but got no closer. Payton, who was playing in his 999th game, completed a three-point play to make it 101-92 with 45 seconds remaining. As is his custom, he declined to talk to the media following the game. "Gary Payton had a solid floor game both scoring the ball and distributing the ball," McMillan said. "I thought the guys came out and played a solid game against a very good team in New York and controlled the game, I thought, throughout the game." Rashard Lewis added 26 points for the Sonics, who took advantage of the Knicks' porous defense to get to the line 34 times. They made 26 free throws. "In the long run, you're not going to beat teams by outscoring them," New York coach Don Chaney said. "You've got to stop them. You've got to get back to basics so that our mentality is defense first and offense second." Allan Houston and Latrell Sprewell, also the subject of trade rumors, scored 22 points apiece for the Knicks, who never recovered from an early 27-11 deficit. The slow start left Houston perplexed. "I thought we would be ready," he said. "You could tell they were playing with some urgency and desperation, and if you don't match that, you're going to see what happens. Not only did we not match them, we didn't even come close." New York guard Charlie Ward left the game in the first half with an abdominal strain and did not return. Chaney thought Ward's absence in the second half hurt the Knicks. "He gives you the big three, the big rebound and the tough charge - all little winning things when the pressure is on," Chaney said. "I would like to think he would have made a difference when the pressure was on." The Knicks tied the contest, 49-49, on Howard Eisley's 3-pointer with 9:15 left in the third quarter but started fouling and the Sonics feasted at the line in the third quarter. During one sequence, Lewis was fouled on three straight possessions and hit all six free throws, giving Seattle a 69-62 lead with 2:27 left in the third quarter. Lewis' dunk capped a 8-0 spurt that made it 75-62 with 52 seconds left in the third. Payton's finger roll with three seconds left gave Seattle an 80-66 cushion heading into the final quarter. The Sonics began to unravel with fouls and turnovers, allowing the Knicks to climb back into the contest. Weatherspoon hit four straight from the line to bring New York within three with under four minutes left. "It's (losing) a lot of pressure," Lewis said. "If you lose three or four straight, there is pressure, especially coming back home and playing." But Lewis answered with a short jumper and Vladimir Radmanovic drilled a 3-pointer to make it 96-88 with 2:53 remaining. The Sonics were not threatened thereafter. Radmanovic and Predrag Drobnjak scored 11 points apiece for the Sonics, who snapped a four-game losing streak against the Knicks. Reggie Evans grabbed 14 rebounds for Seattle. Kurt Thomas and Weatherspoon contributed 14 and 11 points, respectively, for New York, which closes the trip with games against Golden State and Sacramento.
